Jeremiah's Quick Journey Earthside
Former Marine, Nikki, contacted me about capturing the birth of her 2nd son while his Dad was deployed overseas. He had missed the birth of their first baby as well and she really wanted to make this birth special by documenting it. We were in touch as her estimated due date came and went, something I am very familiar with - babies come in their own time! But when little Jeremiah decided the time was right, he held nothing back! I remember getting a text from Nikki that it was time only to be followed 5 minutes later by another message that the baby was coming and her mother had called an ambulance! I raced to her house, which was about 40 minutes from me and when I was 5 minutes away she sent me a message saying that Jeremiah had arrived in the ambulance in her driveway and to reverse course and meet them at the hospital! I wish I could have captured his amazing and speedy arrival (though I doubt I would have been allowed in the ambulance anyway!) - here are some beautiful photos of Nikki bonding with her new little one and telling her girlfriends, who visited the hospital, about his dramatic entrance!
