I had been searching and searching for an expecting family to allow me to start my journey as a birth photographer. I finally found this perfect family, and I got the call Micaela was in labor 5-12-11 around 5:00pm. I rushed in such excitement to the White Bear Lake Hospital not even knowing or thinking about how the progression was at that point. As I got there Micaela was in good spirits, happy, and patiently walking the halls with her lovely mother, on a mission for hard labor to start. After a few hours she made the decision to have her water broken.. and almost exactly 3 hours later little Zachary was born.. Thank you so much Gary and Micaela for giving me this wonderful opportunity to start this path. It really was a great honor. Congratulations, you have a beautiful little boy to add to your beautiful family. I can’t wait to photograph all of you together.
