Welcome to the world Baby Mason

Jackie and I chatted about upcoming photo shoots when I she chose her maternity session, I was thrilled that I would be able to photograph Mason in the hospital after he was born. There’s something about a newborn baby that just makes my heart melt.

I really respected and appreciated Eric and Jackie’s view of Mason’s birth, they always wanted to make sure that, no matter what, Mason would be safe.

At 1:30 am on July 5, 2016 Jackie’s water broke, so they headed to the hospital. After 20 hours of being in labor she started to push. It turns out Mason had another plan… After two hours of pushing the doctors decided they needed to do an emergency C-section.

Finally after a long day, Mason was born at 8:56 PM  on July 5th. Jackie texted me at 11:29 pm and told me that he had arrived, a healthy 21 inch, 9 pound 14 ounce baby boy.

I was so excited for them! I just couldn’t wait to see him! I was there first thing the next morning to capture his tiny-ness as soon as possible.

He was the most precious thing. He soundly slept nearly the whole time I was taking his tiny portraits. I don’t ever think I have seen such a sweet and beautiful baby boy.
