Vermont Birth Photography :: Emily

I was so incredibly incredibly honored and thrilled to be there when Sarah’s daughter Emily came screaming into this world. Sarah and I have been best friends since high school and despite being in different states I was determined to make it work and be there to support her. Almost a year ago I was there when she welcomed beautiful Henry and that too was an amazing experience. This time we were all keeping our fingers and toes crossed for Emily to be healthy and oh boy is she – 6 lbs. 12 oz. worth!

The birth was quite a process and Sarah was such a trooper – I got there about 22 hours before Emily was born so documented that period as well as when she arrived at 9:40 AM. So much emotion and gushes of tears when we heard her screaming. Sarah I love you SO much and I’m so proud of you.

Welcome Emily Waldo Jagger! xxxoo
