I’ve been waiting for this little princess to be born. In fact, tons of people had been waiting. With my busy schedule and with the holidays around the corner…along with wedding season finishing up, I was afraid I would miss shooting a documentary birth of Alessandra. It had been a year since I’ve photographed Birth Photos and I was really excited that I made it….well kind of. On Saturday, November 1st 2014, Brenda (The mother) had texted me and other people that she was on her way to the hospital and that she wasn’t sure if she was going to be sent home…So I kept tabs on her and texted her husband Chris all day to see what the status was. I had a full day of holiday sessions…And when I was on my way to the last session of the day, I was told she was at 6….I told them I would be at the hospital right after. After my session was over, I texted I was on the way…and with no answer from Brenda and Chris, I knew it was happening or it happened. As I parked at the hospital parking lot, Chris texted me back saying, “We just had her.” So I missed the actual birth by probably 5 minutes…..BUT, it never stopped me from photographing other moments that were waiting for me at Labor & Delivery. So happy for you and your family Brenda. You are all close to my heart. Love you all and thank you for sharing your moments with me.
