Baton Rouge Birth Photography | Millie at Woman's Hospital

How I'm going to find words for this birth story, I have no idea. I'm gonna give it my best shot, though!

 

From the instant I met mama Morgan, we bonded like magic. She's one of THE sweetest people I've ever met, and so much fun. I had the pleasure of photographing her dancing her pregnant little behind off at her BFF's wedding a few weeks before little Miss Millie's arrival, even! She's a BLAST, and the huge number of friends and family surrounding her and her family with love on this occasion came as no surprise to me - to know her is to love her, and EVERYONE was so excited to meet their sweet little (long-awaited girl) caboose!


It was the very definition of agony, trying to pick "favorites" to blog when I loved absolutely every second of this birth, but here's little Miss Millie's birth story! <3

An experienced mama knows that when there's an opportunity to sleep - you sleep!

Loved this quiet moment of mom and sister cuddled up, waiting on Millie Bug.

Boys are so funny. Nate was little enough that he didn't 100% know what was about to hit him - he just wanted to go soak up all the attention all of the friends and family were eager to give him in the waiting room!

Biggest brother, on the other hand, was SO into it!

Dad, checking the chart! Former labor and delivery nurse spouses are super well-informed!

I loved how totally "there" for Morgan Adam was! He's got it down, by child #3!

Dad and I may or may not have been discussing babies sometimes being "cheesy" just before Millie's entrance. Pretty sure that Dad thought baby girl looked gorgeous in all her vernix!

When dad's heart gets stolen by the new girl. <3

That moment of pure joy when baby girl finally lands safely in your arms. <3

Does it make me a terrible person if I smile when babies cry? But LOOK at that cute little quivering lip!

Dad's gotta get his digit counting in, too.

Hi there, Dad. I'm going to be wrapping you around my finger for the rest of my life. I think Adam is just fine with that, for the record.

Perfect little nose!

Big bro was so excited! Little bro was, too - he was just not about to let it show so much. Gotta be cool about these things, after all.

ALL THAT HAIR!

Pretty sure Millie's gonna have quite a few men in her life all wrapped up. Dating her's gonna be fun!

Nate was super curious about Millie's first bath!

Girlfriend's gotta get her hair all fancy for her first bow!

Yep, she's crying. Probably better get used to that, kid.

First bow and fancy wrap! Millie got her groove on.

Morgan's sister is apparently one who *never* cries. Millie got her, though!

Grandma, promising her ponies. Probably. <3
