Birth Photos!!!

November 10, 2009

Disclaimer:  Don’t scroll down any further if you are not prepared to see a FRESHLY born baby, complete with blood, umbilical cord and all that cheesy stuff that they are covered in!  You know you want to though. 😉




I was so honored to photograph the birth of my dear friend Sarah’s baby girl today!  She had a c-section and beautiful little “A” arrived around 1:00 this afternoon.  Having had two c-sections myself, it was so awesome to actually be able to see and experience what is going on behind the mysterious blue curtain that the momma has to lay behind while your baby is being whisked off out of sight!  What a rush!!!  I really appreciate the staff at Baptist in LR allowing me to photograph the baby after she was out.  Everyone was so kind and I have nothing but wonderful things to say about how they handled themselves in the OR.  Sarah’s Dr. was such a kind and gentle man as well.  It really is a blessing to have a medical staff with such wonderful bedside manners!  I know that David and Sarah appreciate it so much.   On to the pictures!!!






What a beautiful momma!!!



There’s nothing like a daddy seeing his little girl for the first time…



She finally decided that she was ok and got quiet for a few minutes. 🙂



Sarah seeing A’s sweet face for the first time since clean-up 😉



What did I tell ya?  Talk about a good bedside manner!


A was ready to eat!  She kept on sucking her fingers.


Mommy getting to hold her for the first time.


To the room!



I want my mommy back!!!


The is big sis getting to hold A for the first time.  I just loved this moment with the three of them. 🙂

God Bless all of you & I know I don’t have to wish you happiness….it’s ALL over the place! Thanks for sharing! My son & his wife just had their third little girl. He comes from a family of three boys….yep,I finally got my girls!

    These pics brought tears to my eyes. In all the craziness of raising a 7 and 4-year old, I forget how precious those first few moments of life are. It reminded me of the relief I felt when both of my kids were born – phew! She is just beautiful, as is her mommy and big sister. Congratulations to all of you.

    Normally I wouldn’t try to leave a comment after 86….BUT this was a wonderful post! I was almost in tears and wantin another myself….but they don’t let women my age have babies! Congratulations! WOW what a doc! I’m certainly glad that you didn’t have that baby in WalMart! What an absolute miracle of a blessing.

  111. November 13, 2009 3:42 pm

    Congratulations!!! She’s beautiful.
    I’ll admit I’m crazy jealous! I’ve had six c-sections and never got to have photos like those. What a wonderful hospital! YEA!

  112. November 13, 2009 4:13 pm

    You. Are. Good. REALLY Good! Luh-huh-hoved!!! all the pictures and I’m soooo j-bone. BIG-time. Found you through PW and I’m excited to hear you say great things about Baptist, as I will be delivering there in the spring. Great post!

    SO beautiful! There is nothing in the world more precious than a new born baby! I wish I had such lovely photos of my five blessings. We had to rely on a very nervous, happy, distracted daddy to take those first photos!

  120. November 13, 2009 5:20 pm

    Hi, I don’t know either of you OR the baby! but holy crap!!!! STUNNING STUNNING STUNNING photos. Now, please find a time machine and lets go back to April 1st so you can photograph my baby boys arrival. I’ll even pay for postage.


    I will stop gushing (and tearing) soon.

    Ok, perhaps not soon.

    Gonna have ONE more look.

    So incredibly beautiful – every last stinkin one of them. Those bring tears to my eyes in the fresh “life” of it all. Seriously, the pictures make me want to have another baby. Praying for the family.

    I came here through Pioneer Woman’s recent post. Those are BEAUTIFUL pictures!! That really is an awesome OR staff!! They let you take far more pictures for a C-section than where I had my emergency C baby! Gorgeous!! What a precious moment to capture! And I wish I looked that while delivering!!

  124. November 13, 2009 6:25 pm

    I am visiting from The Pioneer Woman. When I read her story about someone being in labor and being whisked off to the hospital, I had to follow the link and see the baby. She is beautiful and so is your older daughter. You are such a lucky Mom!

    I had to click over because I have a daughter named the same (different spelling). You did a beautiful job with these photographs. You made the mommy look so beautiful and fresh with the black and white. I’ll have to remember that when I have my 7th in the spring! That is ONE FRESH BABY! I love it!

  178. November 16, 2009 8:21 pm

    Wow! These photos are beautiful and they tell such a story. I’m so happy to have seen them. I wish I had someone to photo my baby when I had a c-section!

  179. November 17, 2009 1:24 am

    Wow, wonderful photos, awesome. You don’t get this chance to photograph a c-section everyday. My hand would probably tremble at the shutter.

    Wow!!! Baptist let you into the OR with a camera?! I’m shocked! But so happy for Momma that you were allowed to do that. I deliver at UAMS (high risk) and one of the things I love are all the photos my husband takes during my c-sections (we could have videoed as well, but I had to choose for his sake, LOL) I *love* bloody, vernex-covered, umbilical-cord-still-attached newborn baby photos!!! Awesomeness!

  184. November 17, 2009 2:09 pm

    Arrived here from PW’s site, and I’m sitting here with tears running down my face. This is such a beautiful and special post.

    WOW! Amazingly candid photos. I especially like the last one, baby, dad and big sister. There was a link on The Pioneer Woman’s website to the pics. Sarah had been at the book signing and was apparently in labor. Thanks for sharing!

  191. November 20, 2009 4:27 pm

    Found this link from Ree Drummond’s Pioneer Woman! LOVE these pictures! I’ve been able to be at 3 different births and it was a blessing each time. I think my favorite photo is the close-up of the foot with the black on the bottom!

    2 yrs ago when I was at my neice’s birth, I thought the dr was going to tackle me to get the camera out of my hands. She was really freaky about it. I actually had to put the camera DOWN so she wouldn’t be so distracted by the camera, which was only hanging around my neck and I told her I wouldn’t take any pictures.

    Nothing more precious than these kinds of pictures. And I agree, a daddy and his baby is a truly beautiful thing!
