Working with a family through their entire pregnancy, through welcoming baby and newborn photos, is an unbelievable experience. Add to this experience that this woman is your best friend and there are bound to be high emotions around the whole thing! We have captured this family through ALL the highlights in their life, engagement, wedding, maternity, birth, newborn, first birthdays, second birthdays and on… going through this with baby number two added more excitement.
We first welcomed them into the studio for some maternity photos, a few short weeks before Lincoln made his grand appearance!
Then came the day that Lincoln decided to make his move! It was a funny morning… first a text “hey, I’m seeing midwife this morning to try and get things moving” then shortly after “so I think maybe things are starting but I don’t really know, midwife will be here soon” I asked if I should be rescheduling my session I had scheduled for 11am, and got a “no don’t worry about it”
I planned to go ahead with the session, that was thankfully with a friend! Then came the text… “5cm, but doing okay, come when you can” and only minutes later “Okay, I think you need to come”
as I frantically rescheduled my 11am session, grabbed my gear and headed over to Michelle’s house. Things went very quickly, yet Michelle was joking and laughing between contractions. Garrett worked really hard to get that tub filled and ready… but all for naught, Mr. Lincoln decided he wanted to come, and the water birth was not going to happen! It was wonderful to capture the moment he arrived (in between being a friend, holding her hand and helping through contractions), and being able to see another little soul brought into the world!
Welcome to your life Lincoln!!
Only a week later, Mr. Lincoln joined me in studio for his newborn session! Like his big sister, he did not want to sleep, but with a little bit of magic, we pulled it off!!
Thank you for having me capture all these amazing moments in Lincoln’s life ❤
