As a birth photographer, I get to witness and capture so many different moments and this will be a birth I will never forget. The night before I got “the call” I had a feeling that I might so I actually went to bed halfway ready. At 4am Katie called to let me know her water broke and they were heading to the hospital soon. The plan was for me to wait until she was admitted before heading over, so I ended up getting to the hospital around 7am. By 9am, Katie’s contractions weren’t that frequent and she even suggested I go home for a bit. I declined, knowing that it could go either way, but I did go out in the waiting room to do some work. 30 minutes later Austin came running into the waiting room, “the baby is coming.” A few minutes later and in between contractions, Katie was laughing and out came Gracelynn Olivia.
Happy Birthday, Gracelynn. This is your birth story.
