Lunde family, the birth of an unnamed boy |Adri De La Cruz Best Chicago + West Suburbs Birth Photographer
“When I dare to be powerful, to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid.” 
― 
Audre Lorde

What a whirlwind of a time I had leading up to this birth. My client had mentioned that she, with every delivery, always got prodromal labor. While I had the easiest job in this situation, I was not ready for the uncertainty. She was most definitely done being pregnant. Every day seemed to be the day for about three weeks. Having dealt with the birth of my kids, I had no experience with pains from labor that didn’t progress anything. Throughout everything, my client kept such a positive attitude. We both stressed whether this beautiful boy would make his arrival on his due date December 24. Thankfully he remained put until after, two days before the new year. I arrived at my client house, she was worried that she had called all of us too soon. I was getting ready for bed when I got the call. I was full of excitement. I was not expecting a quick 3-hour birth. She deserved that though, for him to come quickly after making her wait. Her strength and power were just amazing. I am so grateful that I was a part of this incredible moment.

The beauty of this world can be found everywhere you go! for this beautiful session, we headed to this local coffee shop as well as a walkway. I just loved how spunky and full of smiles this duo was. Heather is a fellow local photographer, I absolutely fell in love between the bond of her and her kiddo.

When the email said, “we have two pugs we’d love to include in the shoot” I immediately became beyond excited. Not only am I a baby person, but I think there is nothing better than a pup and a new baby. Dog’s are my jam.  This whole session was beyond beautiful, their house was the perfect background.

Baby H was the calmest baby. I didn’t even hear a peep out of him the whole session. I’m still unsure if that’s a bunch of red hair on his head but I sure hope so! On their walls was a text exchange from his parent’s first contact, in it was a conversation about pugs. How they both had one. Sometimes it all starts with a dog, life is so beautiful that way.
