It's not very often that a newborn comes into the studio sleeping and not fed and ends up sleeping almost all the way through the entire session. What a trooper Caleb was. He had the most beautiful skin tone, and the smoothest baby skin. It was such a treat to finally be able to meet him.

I love telling the stories of how our babies are born--it's so fun to relive those moments again and again. Here is the story of Baby Boy Trivette--Born on February 17th 2016 at 2:17am.
I got a text from Melissa around 5:17pm that said she was headed into the hospital and that her water had already broken. She would update me soon. I was in total shock--baby wasn't due for 4 more weeks. However, I had all the confidence in the world that Melissa and her baby would be perfectly healthy. I waited on pins and needles for hours and finally got another text around midnight that things were changing and she felt like I should come in.
I got to the hospital in Cary at super fast speeds--since no one drives around at midnight on a Tuesday. She was progressing and could feel contractions were getting stronger. We took several laps around the maternity ward and stopped to breathe as contractions got closer and closer together. She was in amazing spirits, laughing between contractions, talking with her husband Mike and her dad. Everything was so positive. We even stopped at the Coach's corner for a few snacks. She had gone to the restroom around 1:00am and things starting to get intense. She never left this area near the bathroom until it was time to push. Nurse Jasmine was called in around 1:30 and stayed with her throughout the delivery.
She decided she needed to lay down--she was so focused and so determined to birth her baby boy on his terms only.
The doctor and ped's team was called in around 2:08am...only the ped's team showed up.
And the rest was history...Nurse Jasmine caught her baby boy at 2:17am. Dad cut the cord, and baby got wrapped up warm and laid on mom.
Meeting His Siblings
12 Hours Later--he gets to meet his big brother and sister for the first time. Big Brother shouted "look! he is so handsome like me."
Congrats Melissa and Mike!

Miss Emma, so beautiful and so pure, was born in the early hours of December 28th. She was absolutely perfect. Everything from her tiny little eye lashes to her tiny little toes. She slept perfectly for me, and even had a few awake moments where I caught her beautiful baby eyes.

Little Auggie was born by c-section just a few days before Christmas. We were honored to be at the hospital before and after his arrival. He was a little chunker; weighing 9 pounds and 4 ounces. Momma did a wonderful job after surgery and they were all released to go home before the weekend was over. Check out some shots below of Auggie making his arrival into the world:
Auggie was about a week old when we were able to photograph him at his newborn session. He was so peaceful and quiet. His family had just left to head back home and the holiday celebrations were wrapping up. Check out this cutie and all his little innocence.
Happy Birthday Auggie!
