I have to say, photographing births is my favorite thing next to photographing newborn sessions. There is just something so magic and truly holy about a new life entering the world. Getting to witness it is quite the privilege, I always feel like I have a V.I.P. pass to life's greatest event.
Ashleigh's labor went so quickly I BARELY made it before it was time to push. Not much sitting around time, and she's a champ because pushing was only a few minutes!
Here they are, falling a little deeper in love…about to welcome their fourth baby into their family.
The two people who love her most cheering her on. You can see the excitement and nerves and tension all at once.
In just a few minutes, Cruze made his entrance to the world and boy was he MAD!
This never gets old to me. Seeing that pure joy on parents faces as their tiny awaited loved baby arrives. It always comes spilling out.
Meeting her son, Cruze, for the first time. All that hard work is just totally worth it.
Ahh, that post delivery haze. Mom and baby always get tired after their big day.
Nathan holding his son for the first time. He looks so proud.
This is how Cruze felt for awhile. He sure did not like all the lights and cold air!
A few hours later the sun finally came up and it was time for Cruze to meet his brothers and sister.
Dad with his FOUR kids!! He looks quite pleased
Trigg became a big brother today:) He seems pretty pleased about it too. I know Brock will teach him all he needs to know about being a big brother.
Zoey could hardly keep her hands off Cruze. It was so sweet.
Cruze has such precious wispy eyelashes and the most squishable cheeks!
There they are….a family of six. Big things can happen overnight.
Ashleigh and Nathan, I hope you are getting some rest some how. Cruze is beautiful and thank you thank you for calling me!!
