Kyle knew she would go into labor early and felt it would be the 19th despite her due date set for the 23rd. We exchanged texts for weeks as we became more familiar with each other and discussed what to expect for delivery.
On May 11th, I went into hyper cleaning mode and on the 12th I continued and tackled some projects around my house. I felt this high that was familiar to nesting with my kids. As a joke, I sent Kyle a text to ask if she was nesting. A definite no as she urged me to come to her house and share my energy. Haha. Instead, I continued and finished in time to check in again to see how she was feeling because my gut was telling me to get ready – my anticipation was unsettling. I ended with, I have a feeling tomorrow’s going to be the day – my camera bag is packed!
The following morning, I received a phone call at 6:40 AM from Kyle, calm and collected, just as she always is. She let me know she, her husband Justin, the doula Donna, and her sister Jackie would be on their way to the hospital and asked me to join them there!
Even I think this experience we had is cray-cray, but I can’t help but appreciate the bond that is shared with my clients that seemingly become true friendships.
Ok, on to the birth, I’ll let this video tell the sweet birth story of Quinn.
Justin & Kyle, witnessing the birth of Quinn will go down as one of the highlights of my life and I will treasure the friendship we’ve formed through the time spent capturing this special time in your lives. Thank you for inviting and trusting me with this incredible opportunity to create images for you to hold on to. Your family has been such a joy to work with and I look forward to our next adventure!
