I had the honor of attending the birth of my friend Jolene's daughter, as my very first birth photography experience. Jolene had warned me that she labors fast, and she was definitely right! She called me at 4:30am, and we met in the ER around 5am. She was already 8 cm dilated, and her beautiful daughter was born less than an hour later!

Congratulations to Jolene and Ben, and to big brother Carter! I am so thankful that you both allowed me to be present for your daughter's birth.
