Welcomed into the world by Mom, Dad, and a very excited big sister.

Mom and Dad arrived at Mercy hospital a few moments before 10am for a scheduled noon C-Section.

I loved all the little “firsts” captured during his first few moments and hours of Jack’s life.  Look at how adorable this little man is… his little side rolls and head full of hair are just sooooo cute!

I am honored to have had the opportunity to capture the special, tender moments of Jack Daniel’s birth day.  This little one holds an amazingly special place in my heart.  Welcome to the world little one!

    Beautiful! I wish you lived closer to do this for my next child (whenever that might be). Who is the singer?

      I wish I lived closer too. It sounds crazy but if I departed at the earliest signs of labor I might just make it to Chicago 4 hours into it. How fast did you go with Emi?!?! Or were you induced? The singer is one of my new favorites – her name is Mindy Gledhill. The song is called “All About Your Heart.” I found her on Triple Scoop Music (where I bought the royalty free license for the song for $60 – so it’s all legit). You can also find her CD on iTunes if you just like her music (like I do). I think she has a new album coming out soon. My other favorite song for baby boys is called “Hourglass”. I haven’t bought the license for that one yet though.
