Birth of Baby Emerson | Portsmouth Naval Hospital Birth Photography | Hampton Roads Birth Photographer

I got a text message in the middle of the night that my doula momma Jessica was going into labor! Her water broke at home and a little later she decided to head in to the hospital. I soon fell asleep waiting for her to call me to let me know that she was ready for me to show up. Around 4 am it was time. I arrived to the hospital at 5am. Her last cervical check showed that she was 7cm and was progressing at a perfect pace. Five hours later it was time for this couple to meet their new little girl.

It really makes me tear up each time I think of how my job works. I am there through their pregnancy and get to watch them because parents. It really is a magical experience and I am so blessed to be a part of their lives.  After sweet Emerson made her appearance I was able to snap a few images for them to cherish forever.
