A Birth Story ~ Avery Belle | Utah Photographer

There were a few firsts going into this shoot. It was my first time photographing a live birth; it was my sister's FIRST baby; and since I've had ALL 4 babies C-section, this was MY FIRST time seeing a live birth! I WAS WAY EXCITED that my sister let me be apart of things. I don't think she will mind all the pictures she's getting too. SO sorry for the explosion of pictures, but it was such  a HUGE moment in their lives and I was just so excited and blessed to be there to document it. Here is the birth story of my newest niece, Avery Belle...

She labored a lot in the bathtub. Did I mention she did this all natural?? No drugs!! Yeah, she's pretty amazing. Especially for being in labor for almost 24 hours!
When her in-laws heard Tiffany was in labor, they drove all day from Washington to be there. They even had time to spare! They are first-time Grandparents so they were WAY excited. They had these hats made for the occasion.
David was by her side the WHOLE time. He was a great coach. She also had a great doula and midwife.
I like to call this "Helping Hands".
Here she is!!
They checked her all out and she is perfect. Look at those lashes!
David collapsed on the couch after the delivery. He was tired too.
Taking a look at his beautiful daughter.
Tiff, you look great after just going through probably the toughest day of your life!!
L-O-V-E this one.
The next day, I brought my family over to see their new cousin! I couldn't help myself and snapped a few more! Check out how LONG her eyelashes are! She got those from her daddy. :)
Tiff, you are A-MAZING and look what you have to show for it! She is beautiful! I'm SO happy for you guys and thanks SO MUCH for letting me be there for this monumental moment in your lives. She is just precious.
