This birth was the most emotional one for me yet. To see the sadness in Katie's eye and the tears roll down her cheeks just broke my heart. I was so happy and honored to be there to capture every moment of their daughters birth so they could look at the photos together when Ben returned home.
Ben and Katie emailed back in forth during her VERY short labor and delivery. This mama went from contraction to complete in just 6 hours. Ben wanted to be on speaker phone for the delivery of their daughter but missed it by 6 minutes. He was able to hear sweet Madeline cry though and I could tell it meant the world to him.
Welcome home Ben! I can't wait to meet you soon for your family's photos. Thank you to both you and Katie for the sacrifices you make for us. It is truly appreciated.
