Meet the newest addition to our bunch. Our sweet baby boy joined our family exactly one month ago today. His entrance into the world was fast and furious. Just like his brothers and sister, his labor lasted three hours from start to finish. I arrived at the hospital dilated 6cm and with strong contractions only 7 minutes apart. I opted for an unmedicated birth again. My birthing team was so wonderfully suppoortive and made my experience one I will not forget. When it was time for him to arrive, he made his entrance into the world with one swift, strong push. Although he was quite big, the biggest of all my babies, I am glad I went the natural route as this was my last pregnancy and my last chance to experience the beauty of child birth.
I have taken this past month to adjust to life as a mama of four. My baby boy is outgrowing the newborn stage rapidly and settling into a routine that will allowme to get back to work in August as planned. For now, I will be limiting my availability to only two days per week. If you are thinking about booking a session, make sure to get in touch asap, especially if you plan on hiring me as your newborn photographer because my calendar for the remainder of 2017 is filling up fast!
P.S. stay tuned for a full blog post featuring more photos from Declan's newborn session, coming soon
