Heather birth story- Utah Birth PhotographerMarch 9, 2012
I shot Heather and Jay’s wedding back in 2007. Since then I have done several family shoots from both of their families, their cousins and siblings weddings, Heather’s maternity and newborn for their first baby, and now Heather’s birth story and newborns for their second baby! On the night of January 15th I got a text at 3:15 in the morning from Heather saying they were on their way to the hospital. She said she would let me know when she got checked and if it was time to come up. I got dressed and got my equipment in the car and by then she let me know it was time!! No false alarms I only live about 10 minutes from the hospital so I headed up there and started shooting!
Heather is one brave momma! She went completely natural and I felt so bad for her and all of her pain! At 6:15am baby Robin was born! This was my second birth story I have done and both of them I bawled like a baby! I don’t think it will get any better with time. It is such a special and amazing moment. There is nothing quite like seeing a new little life come into this world. Robin was so beautiful and precious! I feel so priveledged to have gotten to be a part of this special moment in two amazing peoples lives!
I don’t usually post a lot of pictures from the birth story in the blog post because I feel like the slideshow is a much better way to tell this story. Be sure and check it out at the bottom of the post. (don’t worry, it’s PG)

I love the precious details, like dad holding moms hand during the laboring process.

I went back up the hospital a little later so I could get some shots of their first child meeting his baby sister for the first time.
Isn’t he adorable?!?!
