This family is one the families I have grown closest with along my journey as a photographer. I first met them when Katie was pregnant with their first daughter Madeline. Madeline's daddy was deployed so I was there to document her glowing pregnant belly and there for the big day, when their baby girl would enter the world. I documented Madeline through her 1st year and before we knew it baby #2 was on the way and my services were going to be needed again. Once again I was there to capture Katie's growing belly and then again at the hospital, with daddy this time. Two amazing births that I most certainly will never forget. Two beautiful baby girls that I will forever miss, once Katie finishes up serving in the Navy and they continue on their journey as a family.
The doctor that delivered sweet Charlotte happened to be the same doctor that delivered Madeline the year before. She is so hilarious and was so much fun to work with and very supportive of a photographer being present.....that and she really liked my camera. So much so I turned when I heard some clicking and flashing to see her taking photos with MY camera. I offered to trade jobs for the day but no such luck. On the plus side, I'm so happy to have these photos of me and Katie (forgive me, it was 5 am after a long drive and rolling out of bed). I've never had pictures of myself at a birth so this was pretty neat and the doctor to some really great photos to include some selfies :)
What's so funny about this next photo you might ask? That would be the doctor giving Katie ice chips. Hey, she had a midwife helping her out, she needed to keep busy.
