Kaiya Paige was determined to enter the world on her own terms, so the night before her mama’s scheduled induction (and 8 days past her “due date”), she decided it was finally time to start her journey earthside. After the sun came up the next morning, she slipped easily into the world and the waiting arms of mama and papa.
I think the reason why I love being a birth photographer is because nothing beats the emotion of parents meeting their baby for the first time. Sarah and John waited a long time and went through a lot just to get to that moment. I think they would agree now that it was all – ALL of it – worth it. This was one of the most emotional births I’ve photographed because there was so.much.joy. when Kaiya Paige entered the world. Tears of joys, celebratory hugs, and so, so many smiles. I love witnessing births that involve so much love and support – and this was definitely one of them. Welcome to the world, Kaiya Paige – your mommy and daddy are so glad you’re here.
