Libby and Joe. After difficulty and loss, they got to welcome their firstborn into the world on an unseasonably snowy november day, four weeks before they were expecting him. 

Though he was quite early, Avery came out crying healthily, showing us all his ridiculously adorable lips. And every step of the way leading up to his arrival was drenched in peace, and his birth was so smooth. His little heart kept plugging away at 140-ish bpm the entire time, regardless of how intense the contraction, and his mama pushed him out in less than 30 minutes. 

Libby's mom and sister and future brother-in-law were all close at hand, and able to welcome their newest addition within an hour of his birth. There are so many special moments here. Enjoy...

I'm eager and waiting to photograph your birth story, too. If you're considering it, don't hesitate. Let's get a hot beverage and discuss.
