The Birth of Brayden Nathaniel

This sweet family invited me to photograph the birth of their fourth baby.  Knowing that things might go quickly, I was FAST getting out the door and over to their home for the birth.  Despite arriving in only 20 minutes, I was shocked to find this little man hanging out in his mama's arms!!  I missed his birth by only a minute.  I hate when that happens, but I was so thrilled for this mama to be holding her baby in her arms.  It was just a lovely post partum time... siblings welcoming Brayden, the burning of the cord, an herbal bath and just beautiful, peaceful moments of welcoming this boy into the world.  What a joy and an amazing Christmas gift!
