I never imagined how fast a labor could go until the day I photographed this birth. Total labor time was 2 hours and 40 minutes. Crazy, right?! I pulled in to the birth center about 20 minutes before the birth, but nobody heard me ringing the doorbell. Luckily, the nurse hurried out to see if I was there just ten minutes before delivery. I was extremely happy to have made it in time! This Momma and I were in the same birthing classes together with her first baby and it was such an honor to have been there to capture this for her. Welcome, sweet baby Niko Ryan! I get to photograph him again tomorrow and I can’t wait to snuggle this little guy!
