About The Shot

The Story

This was the first birth I had ever captured! This was the couples 5th baby so I headed to the hospital as soon as she called me with a heads up. I arrived at the hospital and mom was doing great! She had minor pain and was in good spirits. The dad mentioned that all of their babies were born on odd numbered days and jokingly said this baby had 1.5 hours left to be born! 20 minutes later mom was having contractions and was 10cm dilated. She was standing next to the bed waiting for her contraction to pass so she could transition to a sitting position on the bed when baby came flying out. Thankfully, the doctor was next to her and acted fast to catch the baby mid flip. The doctor reached through moms legs and handed her the baby. Mom brought baby girl to her chest and the tears started streaming down her face.
