This is a blog like no other.
Lindsey and Reid Yoder are clients who had become good friends over the years. I see them so much that Reid said to me he will have to get another job after he found out they were expecting a second child ;)
But of course, Reid doesn't need another job and we continued to be on track to create more precious memories of their beautiful family.
We got together for Lindsey's maternity photos during the last month of her pregnancy, an afternoon before I left on a road trip to Florida, hoping he doesn't decide to come out just yet.
Hunter wanted to be in the shoot with mommy and we did get some sweet shots of him and her belly. He was happy, smiley, and so gentle.
There is no doubt - Hunter will be a great big brother to Hudson :)
The Birth of Hudson
I was very determined to be at the hospital when Lindsey deliver her second child. I believe birth photos will capture even more than the newborn pictures. I talked to Lindsey and Reid, explain my thoughts and ideas - they agreed, and we had a plan!
Then we waited.....
Hudson teased us a few times while I was away from Akron later in June, but I guess he knew better to wait for me ;)
And the wait was over...
Lindsey text - July 1st at 1:14pm - Hi Nat. At the hospital now. Ready to go into labor!
That was when I grab my camera and run.
4 hours later
Hudson Reid Yoder was born at 5:37pm - 8lb 1oz. - 20.5 inches
Now you may see it for yourself the sweetness I couldn't explain but I knew that I could capture it, and Lindsey will be able to look at these photos and think back to that very minute he came into this world. It maybe a painful experience for some, but in all, I still believe it is the moment that every mother cherish.
Say Hello to the sweet baby Hudson....my newest little friend
All cleaned up :)
So tiny. and Happy.
Welcome to the world baby Hudson. I look forward to be a part of your life and watch you grow with your beautiful family. I may as well admit it now that I am looking more forward to the day you can stand and walk, so that I may photograph you and your sweet big brother, Hunter, running around your gorgeous house together!
Best wishes, Love.
