Blair and Sean were one of our very first weddings the summer we started our business. Their story is special to us and we will never forget their wedding, filled with tons of love and a great dance party! Since then we have become good friends. Blair and Sean were part of our welcome home crew when we brought Charlotte home from the hospital. Blair brought me the most amazing cream cheese pumpkin muffins! I would wake up in the middle of the night to feed Charlotte and those muffins would just stare at me until I gave in and devoured one every night around 3 in the morning. It was a sad day when they ran out :(
We’ve grown closer over the years and our dinners at El Farolito and after church lunches have become great memories with them. We chatted towards the end of our pregnancy about when it would be their turn. They seemed unsure of “when” but it seemed like immediately they were pregnant and we were thrilled! We chatted about the possibility of birth photos. I was beyond excited to try something new photographically and even more excited that I may get to see a baby come right out of the chute! :)
Well, it didn’t go exactly that way but little J Rock found his way out with some assistance and I got to be there when he finally arrived. I won’t ever be able to put into words what a precious experience this was for me. The birth of a baby between two people who love each other so much… it was so neat to see. The moment that baby is here everything changes. A moment before it was just Blair and Sean and then, instantly they were transformed into parents, forever. It’s a blessing and a miracle and I was humbled to even be close enough to see it, let alone photograph it.
