Lola Dee was born to Kenny + Jill on April 22nd, 2010! What a sweet day that was!
Before I get started on the birth story, I absolutely have to show off the baby shower that a bunch of us girls threw for Jill. It was a "book worm" theme since Jill is such a scholar herself. We thought it was a perfect theme also since we still had no idea what sex the baby was.
The invitations were a labor of love, it took hours, but WORTH IT!
My good friend Sarah made all of these little book covers of famous children's books as cupcake toppers.
I remember a conversation before Jill announced that she was pregnant (I had a hunch that she was), she said that she wanted me to shoot her first birth story. This was a pleasant surprise, I just figured as her sister in-law I wouldn't be in the room when it was time for Jill to give birth. Then a few months later she announced that she was 5 months pregnant!! She hid it pretty well, but I was SO excited and looked forward to the day that I got to spend in the hospital ready to meet Kenny + Jill's first baby!
I have to admit that I cried a little editing these next four photos. Ohhhh, the whirlwind of emotions labor brings, and it was so sweet to see Kenny caring for Jill during her tough hours of pushing.
I do have to give shout out to Kenny for the amazing job he is doing as a dad, I'm a proud sister! Also, an even bigger shout-out to his AMAZING post processing company FOTOFAFA for continually giving my business beautiful proofed images and the freedom to take time for my personal life! If you own a photography business and aren't outsourcing your post processing, I would HIGHLY recommend doing that now and I would definitely recommend using Fotofafa's services!
