On a cold night in early December I received the phone call from one of my birth clients that she was in labor and her little guy was on his way. I grabbed my camera bag and headed to the birthing center. The Christley’s were already there and prepping for their baby boy to arrive. The labor progressed and stalled throughout the night but mom was strong and made it through 100% natural. She gave birth to a healthy baby just as day broke on December 4th. I had never seen a water birth before and it was such an amazing experience to be a part of. Words cannot express how miraculous it is to witness the birth of a child. It brought tears to my eyes as I saw mom and dad hold their little boy for the first time. Thank you both so much for allowing me to be a part of your lives. You are such a beautiful family and I hope you will cherish these photos for years and years.
