I met this mama four weeks before her due date to discuss her birth wants and wishes. She told me that she wanted to do a natural child birth this time around and was excited for her first daughter to become a big sister. Well, when Jessica was 37 weeks and 4 days, I called her to coordinate her upcoming maternity session, and lo and behold, she’s in labor! I met her and her mama later that evening at the hospital and loved watching her labor like a warrior. Shortly after arriving, we got to hang out with her almost-two year old and she even nursed her in between contractions. Also, a group of expecting parents on a hospital tour got to witness this mama in all her laboring glory. Three hours after showing up for the show, Jessica birthed a beautiful baby, naturally, just like she had wanted. It was such an honor to document her birth story and capture little Embree coming earth side.
