welcome to the world: a birth story in pictures

after a month, and going through 724 pictures. i am done with this wonderful session.

this session is not just a session about a birth, but a session about how prayers are answered, how dreams come true. how you can not know someone one minute and then love them the next.

usually when i am at a session. i sort of feel disconnected from the situation. i want people to be real. however, i didn't feel like an outsider with michelle and steve. for 3 hours, we laughed, we cried and we witnessed the miracle of life.

with that, i give you a few of my most favorite photos from the session
and finally, the video...

welcome to the world

so you all - this sweet little man is the little guy i watched come into this world. i never ever thought i would do a birth session and was shocked when asked and now honored to have had this experience. we did his newborn pics last week and in the words of my husband this little guy "showed us who was boss" during the session... i feel close to him since i saw him enter this world, isn't he the cutest?

okay, i don't want to say too much or i will start to cry and i have to leave for work soon, so i will just say that if you are a photographer, put a birth session on your "bucket list" :) i took over 700 photos, and am still post processing them to put to a slide show and with m's permission, would love to share with you all when it is done...

for now, i would like to introduce you to evan . . .
