Next up- their BIRTH photos!! Heather was terrified that she would go into labor while i was on vacation, or while i was shooting a wedding, and after a few close calls (and lots of time on hold, ready to run out the door!), she was finally scheduled for an induction yesterday, monday June 27th. I arrived around 10am, after her water broke at 7am. Within a few hours, we knew it was going to be a long day!
Heather was an absolute trooper, and very rarely did she not have a smile on her face. Luckily, i know (and LOVE) her family very well, so the waiting game was full of laughs and great conversation. Heather was desperate for a VBAC, and did her absolute best to do all she could to have a natural delivery. After a few tense and scary moments, a few Decel's and a fever, she was finally ready to start pushing around 10pm that night.
Baby Libby entered the world with some great healthy cries, but the moment they placed her on her mommy's chest, skin to skin, she IMMEDIATELY soothed and laid so peacefully and calmly there, alert and awake. She didn't make a peep for an hour!! She is an absolute sweetheart.
I told her to get used to me and my camera, as she and I would be spending a lot of time together in the future! Enjoy a glimpse of these images and baby Libby's original Birth Day.
Congratulations Kindt Family!! I am so happy to have been a part of it. Now i need a nap!!
Joie de vivre!
