Oh how I love photographing this family! I was honored to capture Olivia’s birth, then the maternity session for little Logan before his arrival, and now here are the images from his birth day at The Mother Baby Center in Minneapolis!
I thought by taking the day yesterday to think about what I wanted to write would help but I am still at a loss for words on how incredible this experience was…
Maisy’s aunt Shelbey (Keighla’s sister) carried her, loved her, nourished her and brought her into this world so unselfishly so Keighla and Paul could have the child they had waited so long for. Maisy couldn’t be more adored and loved by her Mommy and Daddy and the emotions from the birth show this through and through. As I was documenting this story (which was an honor beyond words ever express), I literally bawled behind my camera. I wish I had more words, but there is just SO much emotion & beautiful moments wrapped up into this birth that I just can’t find the words… Maybe someday I’ll rewrite this post, but for now, I’m going to let these images tell their story.
And yes… there is a medication (& a process) that Keighla took to help her own body produce breast milk, so she is able to feed her little girl. What a beautiful thing! <3
Molly is a dear photographer friend of mine so it was an honor to be asked to photograph the birth of their son, Jude. I loved every moment I spent with Molly & Justin in the hospital and truly loved watching them meet this little man they loved so much!
