welcome to the world {dawson’s birth}

danielle and i met a few years ago when our kids started a “mom’s day out” program together. i watched her go from two little ones, to three little ones, to three littles with a forth on the way. i loved our little chats in the halls and they became more frequent this year when grady (her oldest) declared his love for my hallie! 😉

i have photographed so many amazing things over the last few years. however, i had never photographed a birth until last month. danielle had asked me if there was any chance i would consider photographing the arrival of their 4th baby. of course i said YES…while secretly being slightly terrified. i know that i have given birth twice…but witnessing a birth, i could only imagine, was a whole other story!

the week leading up to damson’s arrival danielle and i texted a lot…she thought he may even come early-so i was *ready* a couple times! 😉 when i received the actual “come to the hospital” text i was SO excited!!! danielle and kevin were both so calm and relaxed. once the pushing began it all seemed to go pretty quick and seamlessly (remember i was an outsider this time…not the one giving birth) 😉 and just like that-their 4th baby; 3rd boy…came into this world.

as calm as mom and dad were…i was a different story…my whole body was shaking and i was crying. i literally told danielle when i left that i wasn’t even sure if i got one picture through my tears! 😉 but indeed…i did…and i love them.

this whole experience was just amazing. God is SOOO present in moments like these. i feel sooo blessed and sooo honored to witness such a miracle. so danielle & kevin…thank you so much for allowing me this wonderful experience. dawson is perfect and i hope life as a family of six is just the best! xoindianapolis_zionsville_photographer_birth_newborn_applesandhoneyphotography_0557indianapolis_zionsville_photographer_birth_newborn_applesandhoneyphotography_0558indianapolis_zionsville_photographer_birth_newborn_applesandhoneyphotography_0559indianapolis_zionsville_photographer_birth_newborn_applesandhoneyphotography_0560indianapolis_zionsville_photographer_birth_newborn_applesandhoneyphotography_0561indianapolis_zionsville_photographer_birth_newborn_applesandhoneyphotography_0563indianapolis_zionsville_photographer_birth_newborn_applesandhoneyphotography_0564indianapolis_zionsville_photographer_birth_newborn_applesandhoneyphotography_0565indianapolis_zionsville_photographer_birth_newborn_applesandhoneyphotography_0566indianapolis_zionsville_photographer_birth_newborn_applesandhoneyphotography_0567indianapolis_zionsville_photographer_birth_newborn_applesandhoneyphotography_0568indianapolis_zionsville_photographer_birth_newborn_applesandhoneyphotography_0569indianapolis_zionsville_photographer_birth_newborn_applesandhoneyphotography_0570indianapolis_zionsville_photographer_birth_newborn_applesandhoneyphotography_0571indianapolis_zionsville_photographer_birth_newborn_applesandhoneyphotography_0572indianapolis_zionsville_photographer_birth_newborn_applesandhoneyphotography_0573indianapolis_zionsville_photographer_birth_newborn_applesandhoneyphotography_0574indianapolis_zionsville_photographer_birth_newborn_applesandhoneyphotography_0575indianapolis_zionsville_photographer_birth_newborn_applesandhoneyphotography_0576indianapolis_zionsville_photographer_birth_newborn_applesandhoneyphotography_0577indianapolis_zionsville_photographer_birth_newborn_applesandhoneyphotography_0578indianapolis_zionsville_photographer_birth_newborn_applesandhoneyphotography_0579indianapolis_zionsville_photographer_birth_newborn_applesandhoneyphotography_0580indianapolis_zionsville_photographer_birth_newborn_applesandhoneyphotography_0581indianapolis_zionsville_photographer_birth_newborn_applesandhoneyphotography_0582indianapolis_zionsville_photographer_birth_newborn_applesandhoneyphotography_0583indianapolis_zionsville_photographer_birth_newborn_applesandhoneyphotography_0584indianapolis_zionsville_photographer_birth_newborn_applesandhoneyphotography_0585indianapolis_zionsville_photographer_birth_newborn_applesandhoneyphotography_0586indianapolis_zionsville_photographer_birth_newborn_applesandhoneyphotography_0587indianapolis_zionsville_photographer_birth_newborn_applesandhoneyphotography_0588indianapolis_zionsville_photographer_birth_newborn_applesandhoneyphotography_0589indianapolis_zionsville_photographer_birth_newborn_applesandhoneyphotography_0590indianapolis_zionsville_photographer_birth_newborn_applesandhoneyphotography_0591indianapolis_zionsville_photographer_birth_newborn_applesandhoneyphotography_0592indianapolis_zionsville_photographer_birth_newborn_applesandhoneyphotography_0593indianapolis_zionsville_photographer_birth_newborn_applesandhoneyphotography_0594indianapolis_zionsville_photographer_birth_newborn_applesandhoneyphotography_0595
