Elijah's Birth Story - Topeka, Kansas birth photography

You all, I not only got to witness my nephew being born but I also got to photograph it for his wonderful parents. I arrived at Stormont Vail hospital in Topeka, Ks. a little after 11 am. It was still fairly calm so I settled in the corner of the room for a little bit until after the doctor came in and broke my sister-in-law's water. 

I was in it for the long hall. 12 hours to be exact. Only because it was family, otherwise, I wouldn't have shown up until MUCH later :)

Tamara has known that she would like to have an un medicated birth, however, she knew that sometimes things don't go as planned too. She was amazing! She handled the pain and discomfort like a champ and she fought hard to get her un medicated birth. I couldn't be any more excited for her!

I even helped apply her heat pack, because I love them that much!

I am so grateful that I got the oppurtunity to witness my nephew's birth and that I was able to help Tamara and Kris out in the process. I love this picture <3
