All births are the same, but at the same time so different. This handsome little guy was born after a long and winding road took mom and dad to a completely different hospital than they had planned. In the end, that ended up being a wonderful blessing. Mom's labor and delivery were so beautiful, and so life affirming. With only two hours from the time her water broke until this healthy 10 lb 5 oz bundle of boy was born, it was the perfect birth with no interventions. Mom had to spend a bit of time with the doctors after baby was born, and capturing the love and tenderness of dad caring for his son in those first few hours was one of the most beloved things I have ever photographed.
