Warren, AR Delivery: Baby Jax

I think it may be an understatement to say that I love babies. I mean, I have four. I really, REALLY love babies! They are sweet, they smell good, and every one is a miracle. I don’t say that to be cliche’. I actually mean it. To get to see a baby come into this world is breath taking. So when Shelby asked me to be there the day Jax was born, I didn’t hesitate. This one was going to be different than the last one though. This one was a scheduled C-Section. I got there around 6:30 that morning and baby Jax made his entrance not to long after that. Weighing in at 6 pounds, he was beautiful! My exact thoughts when I was snapping a few images, were ‘He looks like a baby doll’. Every feature was perfect. When I first went to Shelby’s room, everyone was calm and waiting. The atmosphere was nice. Little brother, Javen, got there not to long after I did. Along the way he was letting everyone know he was going to get a baby that day. I enjoyed every minute I was there and I’m so grateful that I got to witness love come into the world.

Justin, Shelby, and Javen, I wanna give the biggest congrats on your new addition and I can’t wait to see the fun that Javen and Jax are going to have as they grow as brothers and friends!

Baby Day: Grayson Blake Carter

I’ve always said that if I wasn’t a photographer, I would’ve been a labor and delivery nurse. Having the job of helping to bring babies into the world is at the top of my list of amazing professions. So when Kelly asked me to be in the room when she delivered Grayson, I was ecstatic! I had to keep myself from tearing up right there. As the last week of her pregnancy came around, I found myself carrying around my phone like a doctor that’s on call. It went everywhere with me. Finally I got THE text. Kelly visited her doctor and was going to be admitted to be induced. I got my stuff together and headed to the hospital. When I got there, things were going along nicely. Kelly was having contractions and definitely in pain. She labored into the night and the next day. After around 30 hours, her doctor decided it was time for a c-section. Everything went very smoothly and baby Grayson got here without any problems. He was a healthy 7lbs 15oz. Aside from my own childrens’ birth, it was one of the most amazing things I’ve ever seen. I was snapping photos and crying at the same time. I will never, EVER, forget my first labor and delivery session.

Kelly and Bradley, God has blessed you with the most precious baby and he is beautiful. It’s gonna be so much fun getting to watch Grayson grow up!
