12 days new - Baby C*

I don't normally photograph newborns as I like to send them to the talented photographers that specialize in newborn photography (like Laura Taylor). After being at the birth of this little man I couldn't pass up the chance to photograph him and his mommy. I was lucky enough to have Laura stop by for a bit and lend a hand. It was so fun to watch how she gets the baby all set up. There truly is an art to posing those little bodies and it takes a LOT of patience. Thank you, Laura!

I had a lot of fun photographing and snuggling baby C! Now without further ado, here he is at 12 days new.

It's a... - Calgary Birth Photography

 I was able to attend the most beautiful birth recently. Ryan and Susie decided to keep the gender of the baby a surprise, and everyone in that hospital room was ecstatic to find out that after 3 girls their last baby was a BOY!  

Susie did amazing! The nurse was hesitant to call the doctor in because Susie was just so happy. The only way you could tell when she was having a contraction was when she'd go quiet and put her head down.  At 11:51am weighing 7 pounds 7ounces and 19 1/2" long a little blondie baby boy was born. I think he looks a lot like his sisters. This little boy will definitely not be lacking in the motherly love department, that's for sure!

I'm so grateful to have been able to be a part of this experience. The doctor asked if Susie and were sisters (we look nothing alike), I think it was more that I was getting completely emotional and at times could barely see through the tears to take pictures. I love being able to witness such an incredible miracle.
