It was late on a Saturday night that I got the call. “Tonight’s the night!” My good friend Sarah had been in sporadic labor throughout the day but wasn’t sure if it was going anywhere. Liz, another good friend and second shooter, was on her way and I quickly packed up my gear to photograph the birth story. We plopped down on Sarah’s couch and waited. Susan from River & Mountain Midwives was keeping an eye on her as we dozed off.
The night came and went, much to our dismay. Poor Sarah had been laboring all night long with no progression. Thankfully, the next day was the REAL day! After some playtime with Sarah and Jim’s daughters and fantastic dinner of sushi it was finally time to meet Andrew.
He arrived that evening in the comfort of his own home with the assistance of the River & Mountain Midwives. I am so blessed to have been there not only for Andrew’s birth but for both of his sisters’ births as well. I’ll never forget them and I’m happy to share Andrew’s birth story with you now!
