This mom was past her estimated due date. It never dawned on either of us that she could have a New Year’s baby. I arrived to meet her in the Piggly Wiggly parking lot in Bamberg where she spent time walking to get to the hospital with her by 10:00pm. There was a riotous group of people outside the emergency room for a gunshot victim that had been brought in. That explains the police cars.

  • Baby girl, Johnalyn Laurel
  • 1.1.08, 2:22am
  • 8 lbs, 4 oz and 21.5 inches.

Mind you – there is no epidural available at this hospital. Good going, mom! I also noticed a similarity between me & Jody – laughter when in pain! But, this whole family was just so funny and in good spirits the whole sleepless night! I chose the leading verse in the slideshow because that is what was on my mind the entire time I spent editing their images.

Beautiful family! For those that do not know, this is her 5th beautiful child. Her 3rd child and my 4th child were born 1 day apart and will be 4 years old in just over a week! Here are a few images for a sneak peek. The slideshow is below.

  • Monday 
  • ~9am – get picked up at the airport
  • ~8pm – wife goes in labor
  • ~9pm – arrive at hospital
  • Tuesday
  • 8:06am – Kaidance Nicole makes her appearance

My (humble) opinion: Daddy’s little girl was waiting until her daddy got home to be born. But, as soon as he got home, she wasn’t waiting any longer!

Welcome home Daddy! Welcome to the world Kaidance! Congratulations Mommy - Your family is all together now!

TWIN BOYS!

May 10, 2007

I am just beside myself with excitement. I got to photograph a family having twins on Tuesday. They are a super couple with a great family! I was impressed by everyone there.

I received the phone call from dad around 8:30am. I took my 3 year old to my friend’s house for the day. (Thank you so much for helping out, Janet!). I believe I arrived in the hospital parking deck by 9:30am. My first photo timestamp was ~9:36am. My last photo timestamp inside the hospital was ~9:57pm. I did take a photo of the front of the hospital at the end of the driveway loop at ~10:31pm. (I was talking to some nurses on my way out.)

The twin boys were born by c-section at 7:15pm and 7:17pm. I was hunting a clock at that time. I had NO idea what was going on in the OR while waiting for them outside the OR doors. I think it is so special that I photographed the clock we finally found at 7:18pm! I need to trust my instincts a lot more, huh? I had no clue, seriously!

I am conveniently located in range of 6+ hospitals. University Hospital in Augusta, GA; MCG hospital in Augusta, GA; Doctors Hospital in Augusta, GA; St. Joseph’s Hospital in Augusta, GA; Aiken Regional Medical Centers in Aiken, SC; Lexington Medical Center in Lexington, SC. I will be trying to locate the hospital possibilities in the Columbia area as I live right off of I-20. If you do not see your hospital listed and you are interested, contact me to ask about your location.I look forward to capturing the once in a lifetime memories from the birth of each child.
