I was half way through my busy Friday when my phone started beeping with texts. A few were clients asking questions about clothing option and scheduling so I casually was thumbing through them when I found a text from J letting me know that her water had broke. Having just talked her earlier that morning and planning on meeting her at the hospital the next day for an induction I was pretty surprised but figured it would work out. I made a few calls to rearrange some sessions and make plans to get to the hospital. Ten minutes later I got a text that she was progressing pretty quickly and I should come a little earlier. I headed for the door and towards the hospital. Half way to the hospital I got a call that said the baby was coming and that was that. She delivered within an hour of getting to the hospital and there was just no way for me to make it. I arrived soon after everything had been cleaned up and this sweet little girl was being loved by her astonished and unbelieving parents. It really is a surreal experience to have a new little one and even a little more surreal to have it happen so quickly. It all worked out swell as we photographed this newest member of the family. I can’t wait to see them again for newborns next week to see how much she’s grown and watch her siblings interact with her.
