Nothing like a second baby to keep a birth photographer on her toes! Once little Sofia decided she was on her way, she wasted no time at all, coming into the world. Mama pushed a grand total of 3 or 4 times, and just like that, the Gutierrez family became a party of four!
And hold on, can we talk for just a sec about how flawless Shannon looked while giving birth? Let's be real, here - I don't look like that when I'm not having a baby, seriously. She made the whole thing look like a cake walk!
AND, how cute was big brother Lucas' reaction to his new sister? In typical boy fashion, he was totally unimpressed.
Give it a hot sec, Luc - she'll grow on you, I promise! ;)
Here are a few of my favorite images!
Daddy, waiting patiently for go-time!
I love getting the last few portraits of Mom before everything changes for her. Such peace and relaxation - albeit short-lived!
Daddy saying "hi". <3
Gotta get her Facebook official!
Inky baby toes! <3
Daddy FINALLY got to hold her, after some mama time!
Dat lip, though!
Really not so sure about this whole bath situation. What just happened, exactly?
Just about the only five seconds that bow stayed on her head--and within reaching distance--before she unceremoniously ripped it off! The nurses were wise to her game, though. #Thwarted
So. About this "baby sister" thing...
Daddy tickles make all things fun.
