fine art maternity, birth, newborn, baby, child and family photography

the birth of caelen… {New Orleans birth photographer}

I got the call that M and D were headed to the hospital late in the evening, and I headed over to Ocshner in the wee hours of the morning, once Mom was in active labor.  There were still a couple of hours before sunrise, and it was very calm and quiet in the room as this sweet couple tried to get a little rest before the day began.  Slowly Mom progressed to full dilation, but we needed to wait awhile yet for the baby to move down.  When the sun came up, family visited for a few hours, and then hospital staff got things prepped for a delivery!  Sweet Caelen arrived a very healthy 8 pounds and 11 ounces, with a lusty newborn howl.  I photographed this family for maternity portraits (and newborn session to come), and they have so. much. love.  Really, there was nothing but love in that room.  Well, maybe some relief that Caelen was finally here, but otherwise all love!
