What I really love about documenting birth is that each and every birth story is so unique and different. Even within the same family, you just never know how things are going to go. There is so much story to tell, and so many details to each birth story that make it unique and special. Sometimes when we are in the midst of birth we are so focused on being in that moment that we don’t see just how strong we are or do we have the privilege of seeing all that is going on around us, and that is part of what I strive document. I want you to remember the moments from your birth that will transport you back to that flood of love, those first moments with your baby, and to see the strength and love present around you!

I have known Sheeva for quite some time as we used to work labor and delivery here together in Las Vegas. She moved on to another facility and I have since retired, but was so excited when she reached out to me early in her pregnancy to book her birth session with me. I truly am honored that she chose me to document such a huge moment in her life for her.
Her last baby was taken whisked away and taken to the NICU right after delivery

The story of Rex Robert and his beautiful little family wouldn’t be complete without a newborn session to bring it all full circle! I had the pleasure of documenting this family’s maternity session, birth, Fresh 48, and then newborn session. The original plan was to document their maternity and newborn sessions and it just all unfolded so beautifully.

If you have been following me very long at all, you recognize this family as one of my most loyal and favorite families. I have been documenting them since Max was just a year old and the Luedtke family was new to Las Vegas. I get emotional each year just seeing how much they have grown together as a family, individually, and how God has seen them through another year healthy and happy.
They truly are a family that cherishes every day that they have together.

Throughout my life I have been so blessed in having met so many incredible human beings, people that have been willing to open their hearts and their stories to me, people that I believe undoubtedly were placed in my life for a reason. This is one of those families. I talk some about how we connected when I blogged their maternity session a few months ago, but from the time that Mandy moved to Las Vegas and began looking for a newborn photographer there are just so many cool coincidences.

I have been dying to get this birth up on the blog! There is just so much story and so much love woven throughout it all. If you have been following me over on my social media sites, you may have remembered me talking about this family when I posted her maternity portraits. Chris was deployed for the majority of their pregnancy and it literally was down to the wire, not sure whether he would be able to come home for their delivery. Luckily, he came home just over a week before Susan went into labor which worked out really well in everyone getting settled again and working through all that goes into a household with a deployed spouse.

This beautiful couple came to me through a referral from local photographer that I adore. She has been photographing them for years and because she doesn’t specialize in birth or Fresh 48 sessions, sent them my way for this portion of their journey. I have been blessed by this Jamie Rubeis over and over in my photography career and I am so thankful for her in an industry that can often times feel so competitive and lonely.

This beautiful mama found me while searching for a family photographer here in Las Vegas. They are a military family, so like many Las Vegas families are transplants here. Courtney has a background in running her own photography business so knew exactly what she wanted. She took advantage of my Black Friday deal this past fall and I am so glad because I book up so quickly. She was so great in communicating with me about what was most important to her and her family, locations, and outfit choices. It all makes your day so much smoother and helps everyone feel so much more at ease.

I have been photographing one of these mamas and her family for the past few years. I met Nicole when she was searching for a newborn photographer with her oldest son, and I just fell in love with her and her little family right away. She is so great at documenting her family each year and is always up for whatever I throw her way, which I so appreciate! She has been so supportive of me and my business and has followed me even through changes in pricing and genres, and to me that is just so huge!
