{Welcome Samuel} – Atlanta/Alpharetta Birth and Pregnancy Photographer

I had the honor of capturing the P Families home birth on Monday morning.  She was almost three days past her due date and we were just waiting for the moment for Samuel to make his appearance. I got the call on Sunday evening that she thought she might be in labor, and sure enough 4:45am Monday morning my phone was ringing.

By the time I arrived she was in full swing and ready to get in the pool.  This being her second labor she was a pro and so brave. As we all watched in amazement, out came her beautiful baby boy Samuel.

Now seeing the size of Leslie you would think that he would be small and petite like his mama.  Much to our surprise he is going to be a linebacker weighing in at 10lbs 2ozs.  Wow, is all I could say.  

Little Samuel was perfect, though he did give us a scare with the cord being wrapped around his neck three times. He was perfect! 

Thanks to the P Family for letting me capture the moment and letting me be apart of this special time in your life! 

Welcome to the World Samuel!
