The happiest day of your life. documented.
It’s pretty amazing to document the story of a child being brought into this world! Everyone’s story is different no two births I have documented have ever been the same! This one, is no exception.
I got a call late into the night that Heather was in labor, I jumped out of bed, threw some clothes on, grabbed my equipment and headed right out the door! I could hardly drive without speeding because I was so giddy with excitement! I just could hardly wait for the arrival of Baby Kiser!
Once I arrived at the hospital to meet Ken & Heather, she walked in the room looking like she was ready for a tv appearance, ha, she looked like a movie star!! To give you the short version of her entire labor….Heather, after laboring for nearly 24 hours had to be rushed back for a Cesarian. Because she had metal rods placed in her back as a child because of her scoliosis they were unable to give her an epidural or spinal so instead she had to have an actual surgery. The bad news, I wasn’t allowed back there to document anything nor was her hubbybut the good news is that Heather did awesome and Baby Kiser came out healthy and perfect which was by far the most important thing!
Since Ken was the only one allowed in the back after Heather’s surgery I gave him some photography tips and lessons and sent him back to document those moments. I compiled my images as well as Ken’s to create this video…..
Hope you enjoy it!
