My baby boy is 4 today!!!

I can’t believe my baby boy is 4 today!!!  The time has passed so quickly.  We walked through so many ups and downs in his pregnancy, reliquinshed the type of birth I had envisioned but it was all worth it to hold my healthy baby in my arms.  No sacrifice was too big for my baby.  Over the past 4 years, Elijah has made us laugh so many times, had a few trips to the E.R. and so much more.  We look forward to so many more years with this precious blessing from God.

It’s a Girl! The Birth of Madeleine

Wednesday morning I headed to Baylor Dallas to support one of the sweetest couples I have ever met.  I watched this father support the mother so perfectly.  And I watched this mother show amazing courage, determination, strength and love.  Their story is one I will never forget.  So excited to have been a part of their special day.

Welcome Baby J

Friday was already a busy scheduled day, so when my phone went off at 2:40 Friday morning August 5th I knew it was about to get busier.  I got my kiddos off to Grannies house and headed to the birth center in Dallas.  I knew the baby would arrive soon after I walked in and I was right.  Baby J was born just 15 minutes after I walked through the doors.  He was greeted by a brother and sister and a sweet grandma.  This birth was filled with so much love.

Fresh little Miracle

It’s not very often that I get the opportunity to photograph a birth but I was excited when I got the call to come. But shortly after I got a call from the midwife that baby had plans of her own and was born before any of us could get there.  So I just enjoyed photographing the postpartum.  Welcome baby E!
