The day that you find out you’re going to have a baby is filled with joy and excitement. Then the waiting begins, months upon months of dreaming and planning. The final weeks feel like years that will never end. All of the sudden its time, you can tell that the contractions are different and you make your way to the labor and delivery room. Now its only hours until you get to meet your little one.
Every time I walk in to the hospital room as a birth photographer a rush of feelings come back to me. I begin to reminisce about when I was in the place of the soon to be mother. However every birth story is unique and different just like each life leading up to this moment. This birth story was amazing in the way that everything happened so smoothly. It was only a few short hours labor and 16 minutes of pushing from the moment Amy and Dustin arrived in the hospital to the moment they were able to meet their little boy. Here are the images that tell the story of little baby Young’s arrival, just in time for Mother’s Day.
