This was, by far, the most incredible experience I have ever been asked to document.
It's pretty crazy if you think about it, being asked to document one of the most private, intimate moment of some ones life. A LOT of people think having a photographer for this event is odd, then they see the pictures and wish they would have done the same. I LOVED doing these. I left the hospital with the biggest high. Shooting this seriously made my month, I tell everyone that asks what I'm up to... "oh my gosh, i shot my first birth story!!!."
I shot Mackenzie and Jesse's wedding about 2 years ago. Funny thing is, since then I run into them everywhere, about every 4 months or so. Mackenzie is one of those people that you consider a pretty close friend but then when you think about you don't really know why because you never hangout and never talk. I love it. She is fabulous. Not to mention the rest of her family. Oh my goodness. They were SO welcoming at the hospital! I might as well have been one of the family. They were fabulous.
Thank you Mackenzie and Jesse and your family. This was AWESOME. you are awesome.
It seriously was a privilege and I feel honored to have been there.
