I met sweet Melissa when I was taking school pictures of her oldest son.  She was adorably pregnant.  I told her how much I love photographing birth stories and luckily I did, because I got to shoot hers!  We knew it would be a c-section since this was her third and we hoped beyond hope that I would be allowed in the OR.

She scheduled her c-section for first thing in the morning in hopes that the anesthesiologist wouldn't be tired, ready to leave and instead wouldn't mind me tagging along.  After all the pre-op preparations were made, Melissa mentioned to her nurse that it would mean the world to have her birth photographed since there were aspects of it she had never seen.  I couldn't believe it whens she walked back in with a surgical suit for me to put on!  I loved accompanying Melissa and Ryan into the OR, watching them find out it was a boy--their third!  It was an amazing experience.

Every birth is unique and so special.  So grateful I could be part of this one.  Welcome baby Luka!
