Welcome to the world, little Jasper!
Born on 27 September 2017 at 5:52pm
A few weeks ago we had the privilege of photographing our first birth, well...almost!
As all Mum's know, births can be unpredictable, and this story was no different. I (Jess) was on call all day, knowing that Mum had gone into labour earlier that morning, and eagerly awaiting the go ahead from Dad to make my way to the hospital to photograph little Jasper entering the world. As soon as word came through that it was almost time, I was out the door within 5 minutes! Little Jasper, however, had other plans, and was born just before I arrived. Nonetheless, I won't forget the beautiful moment when I walked into the birthing room where Mum & Dad were alone, admiring their newborn son, and then later as their families arrived. I felt so honoured to be present in moments that real.
Being in the room that night got me to thinking, cameras are like passports. They allow you to go to places and be present at events that you would never have otherwise had the opportunity to be. I am so incredibly grateful to Sam & Brittany for welcoming me in to capture these memories for their growing family, and allowing us to share the photos of their first raw moments with their little man.
What do you get when you mix two grandparents, three daughters & spouses and nine grandchildren? A fun, fast-paced family photo session that may have left us feeling just a little exhausted!
As as gift for their mum/grandma, we hope that these happy memories find the perfect place on Grandma's walls for many years to come.
