I absolutely love doing delivery shoots, especially when they are for close friends! When Sam and Lindsay found out they were pregnant, I was about twenty weeks into my pregnancy. We were so excited to find out our close friends would have a baby so close to ours!
It is so awesome to look at my four month old daughter and now, baby Tilden, and realize how extremely blessed and loved we are. Sam and Lindsay, Tilden is so so sweet! And don't ever forget that God chose you as his parents. From my short four months of experience, being a parent is already the most wonderful, emotional and refining process you will know in life. But it is so sweet!
Tilden came into the world by a C-section, which I knew wasn't what Lindsay had planned, but she was a trooper! I got to the hospital and she was in such good spirits. They were so ready to meet their son. I was able to capture the few moments right before Lindsay went back for surgery and the moments of Tilden in the nursery and being brought to Lindsay right afterwards. Thank you to you both for allowing me to be there! It was so awesome to experience his new little life! It felt like I had never seen anything like it before! Even after having my own child, the awe of childbirth is still so powerful to me! It truly is a miracle. Lindsay, you did so great! And I have already seen just in the first week of Tilden's life how much you and Sam love him! Even with the lack of sleep, you two will be such great parents! You will be surprised what you are capable of doing for that little person, even at 2:00 in the morning! Just love him. Show him what love is and how to love!
I already love him so much! I hope these photos are something you can look back on and cherish in the years to come as your Tilden grows! We love you guys!
