Hey everyone! Long time no read!
Yes you have read the title correctly, 15 hours old!! I have never got to experience a baby this new since I have started working as a photographer.
Around when fall when in full swing Rebecca and Joe had contacted me to shoot photo + video of the unassisted home birth of Loralei. I was so stinking excited, I didn't even hesitate to say YES! Alas plans don't always work out the way we intended..babies come whenever they feel is the right time. After receiving a text that night around 7:30 about her water breaking and how she didn't really have strong contractions she decided to wait it out and see what would happen. She would probably have her in the a.m and I would be on stand by until further notice.
At 8:08 she was born, y'all Loralei came out so fast she didn't even realize she was in labor. Talk about a strong momma! I am so sad that I missed this precious moment, but thankfully I was able to capture these early the next morning. I love the simplicity of this session and how sleepy she was the whole time. Here are some of my favorites..
