Eloise-Birth-Ft. Riley, KS

I maybe had some panic set in after I agreed to shoot the birth of Mike and Angela’s 3rd child. I knew I was capable… but what was I getting myself into? Most of my panic was that I was going to be asleep and sleep right through messages that Angela was going into labor.

Luckily, that wasn’t the case.

After about a week of contractions, the doctors decided to break Angela’s water on Tuesday afternoon. I raced to (first Manhattan by mistake) Ft. Riley to capture the birth. While we thought the baby would be arriving pretty quickly, Eloise had other ideas. Through many, many hours of pain and discomfort, Angela stood strong waiting for her to be ready. It was amazing to see Mike’s support for her though her pain. Finally, near midnight, it was finally time to push. Eloise made her debut and man is she gorgeous!

Over all, this was probably one of my favorite things I have ever captured. The emotions and pure joy that I was able to shoot were just fantastic. Thanks so much Mike and Angela for letting me hang out with you guys. I can’t wait to see you both and all three of your gorgeous daughters for your shoot next week. 🙂
