Emery’s birth story.

I am happy to finally share Emery’s birth story. This sweet girl was born last fall and provided a perfect delivery for her mama Ashley. The most unique part of this delivery is Jake, Emery’s dad, was able to deliver her! Jake is a medical student and was able to do his OB rounds with Ashley’s doctor at the time. Which turned out to be perfect timing to deliver their third child.  Jake was able to check Ashley’s progress throughout labor and did the entire delivery himself with the doctor supervising the entire time.  It was such an incredible moment to photograph for this family.  I can’t thank them enough for having me there for that amazing event.

Tanden. A birth story.

I was lucky enough back in March to photograph the birth story of sweet little Tanden.  Although the C-section was a surprise because of complications, everything turned out A-okay thanks to awesome doctors and nurses.  Thanks again Courtnie and Sean for letting me photograph such an amazing event!

Elle, the birth story.

I am so excited to share this birth story of little Elle coming into the world! It was truly amazing being in the room with Austin and Layla while they became parents after waiting for so long for their little one to come.  It’s a beautiful story that I am happy to share with you all through photography.

Parker’s birthday.

So while I was at the hospital with Cade and Kelsie our good friends Curtiss and Ginger decided to have their baby boy on the same day too! What are the odds?!
I felt like I was on some kind of movie. I was going back and forth between their rooms all night. You wouldn’t believe how much fun it was! I helped Curtiss and Ginger announce their pregnancy to their family so it was just fitting I was there for the birth of their little guy Parker! Or I am just an overly involved annoying friend. But hopefully they don’t see it like that!
It was amazing to be there to see Bauer and Parker as brand new babes. I can’t thank both couples enough for letting me photograph such beautiful moments in their lives.

Bauer’s birthday.

I had the most amazing opportunity given to me by Cade and Kelsie to photograph the birthday of their little guy Bauer. Unfortunately, the same time Bauer decided to make his appearance was the same time Greg’s Grandfather’s funeral was taking place. As soon as the funeral was over I rushed down to the hospital only to find out I missed his delivery by 20 minutes! I was so sad, but I still was able to capture their first day as a family.
I really can’t even tell you how much fun and amazing it was to be a part of the Thuesons’ first day of becoming a family. There was such a feeling of love that Bauer brought with him. I have never seen Cade and Kelsie happier than in these moments.  I hope you can see that through these images.
