Happy Birth Day! | Salt Lake City, UT | Birth Photography

On Saturday May 20, 2017 at 12:19PM a Mama, Daddy, baby, and family was born.
This warrior Mama was 42 weeks pregnant with labor beginning early morning the Friday before.
Mama's loving husband was by her side every step of the way. I remember the look in his eyes when it was suggested he try and rest because it "could be a while". There was no way he was leaving her side--no way.
There was so much love in the room you could feel it.
Mama was supported by her husband, two amazing doula's, midwife {Eve} and birth assistant {Eva}--from The Birth Center.

A hospital birth was not part of the plan, but life happened and plans changed. Baby girl struggled to maintain an effective position and Mama was exhausted. When my time with the family was over, baby was nursing, Mama couldn't stop smiling, and Dad was in awe. Everything was just as it should be.

World, meet Charley...all 7lbs 15.5 ounces of delicious beautiful baby-ness!

{A very special thank you to Charley's parents for allowing me to share in this very special moment! <3}
