Braelyn is Born!!!

Hey Everybody!!! I got to photograph a baby being born, here is the story!!!!  It started out early at MCG Hospital in Augusta, Georgia. The night before my mom to be: Makacha was admitted to the hospital and she was awoken early so she could be induced into labor. There were hours and hours of waiting, watching the clock and watching Makacha and Daryl getting ready for their new baby. As a photographer, this is the first time I have been asked to document and photograph an entire birth, so I must tell you I was pretty excited!!! And as for them, they wanted to enjoy the birth not holding a camera, so it made perfect sense to hire a photographer. At noon, they broke Makacha’s water and we sat and waited for her go go into active labor. As the day progressed, we talked about many things, how the two of them met, their marriage, their lives, their desire for a baby. It has been a long journey, and it has not come easy. They had been trying to have a baby for over three years. And all I can tell you was as the minutes turned into hours….the day was hard on Makacha. She was so blessed though, many of her coworkers at MCG and Dr. Ray stopped in often to see her. Also, her sister Crystal stayed by her side all day long. Later in the day, her mom and her entire family showed up and it was one full hospital room. Near the end of the day, it was decided that surgery would be needed so Daryl headed to the operating room all dressed up in the traditional “blue garb”. The next thing you know they are suiting me up and letting me go in the operating room with them. It was so exciting!!!! I actually got to photograph Braelyn during the first few minutes of her life. After the baby was born, we headed back to the room and brought the baby in for everybody to see. The photos from yesterday are fabulous. It was such a special day. It was so happy, so real, and the White Family is so nice. I think it was one of the nicest days of my life photographing and I thank the entire family for such a beautiful day, they are all amazing. I hope you all enjoy that new little baby and enjoy all of my photos!!!! Congratulations it’s a GIRL!!!
