Chloe :: Birth Story

Birth Story session are one of my all time favorite things to photograph.

There is so much emotion, joy + love - the most raw story there is to tell.

Malissa + I had been chatting quite often leading up to the day Chloe arrived. The morning she was born, I had a text from Mal stating "I think today might be the day!!". By the time I got home from work, I received the "water broke - heading to the hospital" message. I grabbed my gear and headed off.

Mal labored for nearly 6 hours - all without meds!! Chad was by her side the entire time, supporting + encouraging her every step of the way. Seeing the way they are together just melted my heart. Mal is a warrior + truly a strong, tough woman.

At 11:47 pm, Miss Chloe Rae made her debut. 6 pounds, 13 ounces of perfection.

I snapped a few more images + left Mal + Chad to soak up their beautiful baby girl. After work the next day, I came back to get some Fresh 48 images before they headed home.

I cannot handle how precious these are. Major heart eyes.

Mal + Chad - it was truly an honor + blessing to capture these moments for you.

Enjoy + Leave some love!

PS - One of these images was featured by The Bump! :)
