On the 18th of September I had been on standby for two weeks to photograph a birth. The due date was the 19th, but what baby comes on time ... ?
Well little baby Tegan was very keen to meet her Mummy and Daddy and big brother.
My cell phone rang at 11pm, and with me only being a few minutes away from the birthing unit in Howick it was just as well I didn't wait until this amazingly strong Mum who was calling from the car, waited to see how far she was into labour. I could pretty much hear on the phone that I didn't have time to wait and see if she was ready for me to come in! A beautiful baby girl arrived at 2 minutes to midnight! What an absolute privilege and joy to be able to record this amazing moment!
Less than a week later I went back to Mr and Mrs M's home and did a little "Brand New" session. This is a lifestyle session, and a great chance to get some photo's with siblings, and it gives Mum and Dad a bit of time to recover from the birth. What a cute little big brother Matthew is, and although he was pretty interested in his dinosaur, he was full of kisses for his little sister ...
Congratulations to a lovely family! ~ Liz ~
