Gemma’s Birth Story| Chicago + West suburbs birth photographer

My excitement has not worn off yet.

I got a text on that Friday, at around 3 ish after a whole week of uncertainty and lack of sleep. I was worried like crazy that I would sleep through it. I’m guessing that its normal for birth photographers to feel like that. This was the first birth I’ve ever photographed, and I got so incredibly lucky with the beautiful souls that chose me as their photographer. I cannot even adequately enough state how much love an devotion was felt inside that room, as I saw Jason be the most supportive partner to Sarah, as she worked hard to bring their baby earthside.

I have to mention that only dad and big brother knew the sex at that point. Big brother was busy telling everyone the opposite sex and it was hilarious. He was present at the birth of his sister and was able to see first hand how strong of a mother he has. When Sarah took a peek at the sex she was elated to find out that it was, in fact, a girl.

I hope you enjoy this gallery. It has to be a new favorite if mine. Welcome baby Gemma, she was close to 10 lbs of perfection and already so loved.

  1. This is awesome beautifully captured Adri and the story behind it is so fun to read. I love it when you captured everyone and their involvement in the process, making me want to have another baby at home so I can have something like this captured.
