When I was asked to photograph the birth of Jase, I immediately said, “YES!” I couldn’t wait for October of last year to arrive to be a part of something so special. Well.. things didn’t go quite as planned (does it ever with birth?) and this little guy decided that making his appearance in this world was coming much more quickly than we had hoped. (Well, earlier than I had hoped anyway.) I got the call about midnight that Deidre was in labor. I headed to her birth center around an hour later as they thought I should wait just a bit to come. It was a very foggy early morning and I remember literally sprinting to the door with my gear, just to hear her mom say, “He’s here.” NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!
Even though I missed the birth, I still captured Jase’s first precious moments into this world, and I know his parent’s couldn’t be more thrilled.
