Ty contacted me months ago asking me to photograph her baby girl's birth. See, her husband is overseas with the Marine Corps and they weren't sure if he would make it back for the birth. Ty wanted everything documented and I was so excited she asked me! Photographing births is something I hope to offer more frequently. Luckily, Ty's husband, Kevin, was able to fly in after all and we spent the beginning part of the night chatting, along with Ty's sister and Ty's doula.
Things were progressing slowly, but steadily. Soon enough, it was time to push. Within 30 minutes, Patti-Lu (Patricia Louise) was welcomed into the world. There was not a dry eye in that room! Thank you, Ty and Kevin, for allowing me to photograph this amazing miracle. I am so honored to have been there.
