Every child begins the world again…

Every child begins the world again…
~Henry David Thoreau

What’s a birth story without any photographs of the baby? Well, it’s the story of the evening. Lacie was kind enough to allow me to tell the story of her little one’s grand entrance, but between medical red tape, crazy weather situations (a tornado warning even put us on Code Black!) and a visitor schedule set in stone, I was only able to capture some of the memories between the birth and the reunion of mom, dad and new baby. But special moments, these still were!

Expect some film images to make an appearance in the next week or so. Until then, leave some love for this beautiful family in the comments!

Amy, I had no idea you were doing birth photography for Lacie! Gorgeous photos! Congrats Lacie! <3

Kim Y. and I were both on call, so it was a 50/50 shot. 😉 I wish I could have gotten more for them, but I hope this will add to the memories of the day.
