A few weeks ago we threw a church shower for one of my oldest friends, Melinda. At the shower she asked me if I would take some pictures of her soon-to-be family of three in a "First 24 Hour" shoot. I was BEYOND thrilled to say yes! I told her I would be on call for the next few days since his due date was still a week out. Would you guess that THAT night I got a message from her saying her water broke?!
I stayed in touch through texts from her and her mom throughout the next two days while she labored. After about a full day of hard labor Melinda gave birth ALL NATURAL (no medicine, people!) to sweet baby Walker.
When I arrived I was able to capture some of the sweetest moments ever. I saw a brand new, super strong mommy learn to nurse her son with the help of HER mom and best friend. I saw a new daddy change a diaper for the first time. I listened as a brand new baby's crying only stopped when he was handed to his mommy or heard his daddy's voice.
I was so grateful to be asked into this new family's precious first moments together. Wishing all the best to Brian, Melinda, and Walker on this new and beautiful adventure together! Love you all!
