Blaze’s Birth Story

At 11 PM on January 25th, 2013 I got a text that Nikki was going to labor. (Click HERE to see Nikki’s Maternity session) Not half an hour later she tells she is heading to the hospital, I was so excited, I had my camera charged and ready to go, my hospital bag ready with snacks, iPad in case of a long birth. I arrived to the hospital only to find that Nikki’s husband had been stopped by a law officer because of speeding, the ambulance brought Nikki in to the hospital as I waited downstairs for her to be admitted. A few minutes later a nurse came out to get me and I began shooting, for less than twenty minutes I shot details and moments, then her water broke. Blaze was born January 26th, 2013 at 12.47 AM, he weighted 19.5 inches and measured 6 lbs 4 oz . This particular doctor at Stafford Hospital did not allow any photography of the delivery, however I was able to capture the first moments of Blaze’s life as his mom and dad held him for the very first time.  His big sister Paisley was waiting outside with grandma waiting anxiously to meet baby brother. I feel truly blessed to be there to capture these important moments of their lives, I cannot wait for Blaze’s newborn session this weekend! 🙂
