The Baking, Birthing, and Bringing Home Of Baby Trevor

I'm super behind on blogging these days, but I really wanted to spend a little time catching up and posting some shots from this birth that I shot a while back. Actually, I want to share not only the birth, but the entire series of the best shots from the maternity, birth, and newborn stuff that I took. I almost didn't make it to this birth, same as the Doula. We were both speeding down the freeways as fast as we could from Coppell and Farmers Branch. She made it about 5-10 minutes before I did, and when we walked in, the mama was complete. She could have pushed the baby out right then and there, but she really wanted the tub, so she held on as long as she could to get the birth she envisioned. Mothers like this always blow me away. It takes an immense amount of strength to not want to just hurry and push a baby out when you're complete. You just want the pain to go away. Not this mama. It was as if she'd have waited another hour if they promised they'd have a tub ready by then. She was capital D-E-T-E-R-M-I-N-E-D. It was amazing to witness. Such a strong mama!

After all was said and done, baby Trevor came home to an older brother and sister who are super in love with him. Congrats to these guys and their amazing family! It was a pleasure.
