Sulivan June's Birth Story (Utah Birth Photography)

Miss Sulivan joined us early last Tuesday morning. She gave her mama a good 18 hour run for her money and I was present for the final six. When she finally arrived after 3 hours of pushing, many tears were shed... mainly by me. I am kind of baby when it comes to babies. (Prefer a slide show? You can view it here).

Kirstin's mama drove straight for 10 hours to see her first grandchild born and made it with time to spare.

Due to the early hour (it was about four in the morning at this point), I received permission to enter the nursery and capture Suli's first bath.

I feel so honored to be apart of each and every birth. Thank you Weston and Kirstin (she also is a photographer) for this grand opportunity.

Aria said...

p.s. I LOVE that you get such great exposures and colors with such tricky lighting - and that you can post photos in COLOR (rarely seen with birth stories!)...and the bath photos are adorable! Wish you could've snuck into Max's first bath... :)

That is such a precious story, and so well captured. I feel like I really know some of the details of that special time :) Really like the processing too, it looks like film, but did you use digital?
