Rowan's Birth Story

A birth is the most magical event, and I always feel so honored to get to be in attendance! Every one is so unique and special. I actually met Misty at a birth story that I shot for her sister, and was excited to now be capturing hers. Rowan is their 3rd boy and rainbow baby. We were all looking forward to seeing how his brothers would react to meeting their new brother

The tone of the room was very relaxed as we waited patiently for things to progress. There was some discussion of what he would look like and how much he would weigh. Guesses were made of his hair color and it was fun to see Misty’s reaction when she ended up being right. He had a little bit of red fuzz peeking through all that vernix.

Of coarse he was absolutely adorable and his mommas love was oozing all over him as she snuggled him for the first time. I would agree that it’s a magnificent feeling to look at your sweet baby and memorize all their tiny features, staring at them all day and adoring the funny and lovable faces they make. It’s definitely a love drunk phase and I suggest soaking it up as much as possible!

When it came time for the boys to meet him, they were a bit timid. Little Bryce looked on him lovingly, but was definitely nervous. I think he even said aloud that her was “terrified” haha. And Grayson was not so sure about him at all, he kept shooting him the stink eye. It was so funny, and cute at the same time! You just never know how kids are going to react. But it’s always fun to witness!

A big thanks to this cute family for allowing me to be part of their big day and capture these memories for them! I love it so much and get to always keep my newborn fever at bay when i get to shoot a birth for someone else, I think I’d just keep popping out kids otherwise haha!! (So my husband also thanks you ;) )
