Birth Story: Baby Mackenzie

I have never been to a birth that has gone exactly like the one before. Every birth experience is different from another. However, there are two things that happen at every birth I am honored to attend: 

1. I inevitably cry.

2: Love is present.

The second I sat with Grace at Starbucks for our initial meetup, I knew it was going to be a ton of fun to work together. I feel like I could have talked with her for hours. We seemed to connect from the start and her excitement for having this birth photographed made me even more excited.

Weeks later, I met her and her husband bright and early at the hospital, where they welcomed their second baby girl. This is where I have to mention a first for me: When I was putting on the scrubs, my pants kept falling down. Well, not my actual pants; my scrub pants! I may or may not have had to create tape-suspenders to hold them up. At least it made for some good laughs, and I learned how to make tape-suspenders in a pinch.

After a peaceful delivery, Baby Mackenzie arrived, Mom and Dad were overjoyed, we were all emotional, and Big Sister got to meet Little Sister.

It was an honor to witness this baby girl's birth, and the love that is so, so evident among this family. Can't you tell that Big Sister was smitten with her Little Sister?
