I can't even describe how fun it is to get to follow a family from engagement photos to maternity and now birth photos. Seeing two people become parents is just incredible.
Cooper's birth didn't quite go "according to plan". Mama labored long and hard but little man just did NOT want to come down. She did so incredible, relaxing through each contraction like a seasoned pro. She had great support and her midwife thought she did amazing. In the end, Cooper was asynclitic and sunny side up, simply never descended and needed to be delivered via cesarean. We were all grateful for modern medicine that kept mommy and baby safe. Daddy and family seem to be absolutely smitten with the little guy.
