I was so excited about this birth! I’ve been wanting to document a birth for a while now and I finally booked my first session! I loved it. It was an honor to document a child’s entrance into the world, and I cannot wait to do it again. (Are you pregnant? Do you know someone who is? Talk to me.)

Riley was Jo’s second kiddo. Jo’s husband Josh and her mother-in-law were there to support her during the labor and delivery. Jo’s mother-in-law was a labor and delivery nurse for over 20 years… so basically, a really good support team.

When it was finally time to start pushing, Riley was already crowning. She was born only 9 minutes later! She sure was in a hurry to get into the world.

Both Mama and Baby are healthy and happy. 🙂

Big brother, Luke, was able to meet her!
