Photographing births can be completely up in the air because each birth is different and you just never know what you’re going to get! Our goal was to photograph the delivery of little Charlotte, but her mama Alissa was such a champ with quite a different birth experience then she was expecting, so we wound up nixing the delivery photos and did a day after session instead! To give you some insight into how different little Charlotte’s entrance was from her parents expectations, the doctors had told Alissa and Alex that they were having a boy! So a blue nursery, and all the cutest little boy clothes later, much to their surprise, they had a girl! Enter sweet, sweet Charlotte. I love each and every birth story so much because there isn’t one that is alike. Each family has their own experience and story, and being even just the tiniest part of that story by getting to document the moments through out is so, so awesome.
Everyone, meet Charlotte!
