What a gloriously wonderful day to have been apart of! To be able to witness the birth of a little person, is a spectacular thing. Nothing short of a miracle is the birth of a baby! A day that makes me very proud to be the Southern Ohio Birth Photographer.
When I got the call that mom was ready to deliver, I knew it would be soon. Like all of our mommies I tell them to contact me after they reach 5cm. When Jessica contacted me she said she was 6cm, and 90% effaced. I knew it would not be long until her baby Eli would meet his mommy along with rest of us for the first time! So here I come, the birth photographer, to capture and document one of the biggest days of your lives!
I arrived 20 minutes later, and within an hour Mommy was pushing!! Wow! I cannot say enough about how wonderful Momma did! Jessica made having a baby look easy! I have witnessed many births, and this one appeared to be a cinch. She was pushing for 15 to 20 minutes actively, and baby Eli was welcomed into the world!
Her Doctor, Dr. Roberts, was amazing during the delivery. She was top notch, not only as a doctor, but also as a coach to mommy during the labor and delivery. She was nothing short of wonderful with Jessica. The photography is proof, she did a wonderful job with both baby and momma.
Baby Eli arrived in the world at 1:38pm on November 18th, 2015. He weighed 7 lbs 7 oz. Eli was alert, endearing, and observant of his entire surroundings. What a sweet little man. What an absolute pleasure it was for me to capture your birthday Eli! You are a dream!
