“Family is not an important thing. It’s everything.” – Michael J. Fox
This quote is so true with this family. There was a special bond that I will never forget, especially seeing her daughter witness the birth of her baby brother. Big sister even did a great job of keeping the gender a secret until the very end.
I remember talking with this mama on how babies come when they are ready, but joking that they tend to chose the most inopportune times. She didn’t have anything coming up and I mentioned to her that my daughter’s birthday was coming up. Sure enough, her water broke early that morning. I met them at the hospital and documented the birth of baby Everett. I’ll leave the details of the story to the family to tell. I enjoyed having a special second shooter that day. Her daughter borrowed my small spare camera and captured shots from a kid’s eye view. Baby Everett’s arrival was perfect timing!
