The birth of Emerson

About 2 hours before Emerson was born his dad called and told me labor had begun. Just over an hour later he called back and told me to head over when I could but not to rush. I was so eager to get there I left right away. My bags had been packed for days and everything was ready at the door waiting. I pulled up to the house about 30 mins after the call to head over when I got a chance and saw the midwife pulling up as well.. I went inside, walked right up to the bedroom and with only about 30 seconds to spare captured this first set in my first 6 photos. Dad catching his baby in the bath! ♥♥♥

I was shocked! I was expecting to arrive to mid labor with the passive phone call I had received. This family was just so relaxed and easy going about the process. I bet the laid back attitude is what lead to a super quick birth! I am so happy I made it and was able to capture this even it was only 30 seconds before!

They did a little bonding in the tub….
