When you have 339 photographs from a birth, you do your best to narrow it down to 70 something to blog. Which is no easy task. The best advice I have for other photographers trying to narrow photos down; GO WITH YOUR GUT. I try and be quick, run through a few times and go with what really strikes me. 

This is the second Toth baby I watched enter the world, and I was so happy to return to Fairview Hospital in Cleveland (one of my favorite places!) to do so. This family is all about family, and I knew how important these moments were after how much they went through to have their children, each of them, now one boy and one girl, and how long they waited to meet each of them. The nursing staff was amazing, the doctors were amazing, and I kind of wish I could deliver my own upcoming baby here! Unfortunately, it's a bit of a drive for us haha, so I guess I'll just stick to photographing others. 

Mom had a fairly quick delivery and Mom did amazing. Big sister got to join in for photos before and after babies birth and they got their second daytime birth, which means great natural light for photography. 

I am not booking anymore births for 2018, but I do have room for in home newborn sessions and in hospital fresh 48 sessions August - December.
