Eli’s arrival!

I first met Marcus and Katie when I photographed their very first belly pics. I took pictures of their first baby and I was there on their wedding day. This past weekend I got to be present for the birth of their third, sweet, little bundle. It was supposed to be a natural birth. Camera in hand, I raced to the hospital to capture the arrival of this sweet little peanut. I was there photographing Katie laboring, on the ball, walking the halls, contractions and all. After about 3 hours of me being there, it became apparent that something wasn’t quite right. Sure enough, the doctor found that the baby had turned himself and was breach. A c-section was needed to ensure a safe delivery. Our delivery pictures took a very different turn as I was not allowed into the operating room during the surgery. I took pictures up to the very last step I was allowed to go with her to and then sat in her hospital room praying for a healthy baby and an uneventful delivery. Sure enough, Eli Marvin arrived at 9:55 pm Saturday. All 7 pounds, 3 ounces, and 20 inches of him was 100% perfect!!! GOD IS GOOD! While I didn’t get the actual delivery, I did get the first snuggles, kisses, and first official pictures of Mr. Eli. So here is a little bit of the arrival of this wonderful little man on his birthday. Katie and Marcus, I will be sending you a flash drive with ALL the images on it very soon! 🙂
