Jaxon : A fresh 48 & Newborn Story

We all know that Freshies are just about my favorite thing and this sweet snowy day was no exception to that rule! Little Jaxon Luke had made his appearance in the world and I ran right over to meet him! 

This little one had the most adorable chunky cheeks and the most impossibly awful smelling gas! It was a wild ride of " awww how cute and OMG what is that ?!?!" Good thing he was so adorable!! Mom and dad didn't care, and of course neither did I, too funny though. 

All of a sudden, it's two weeks later and I'm on my way to see that babe in his house; all snuggled up with mom and dad, and fur siblings! Everyone was settled into a nice routine and of course, a little bit obsessed with the new family memeber.

Many children are wished for and celebrated; this little one was SO wished for and his arrival was greeted with that impossible euphoria of a dream come true. 

Welcome to the World Jaxon, you are so very very loved already!

Baby Jules| A Denver Fresh 48 Story

Fresh 48 sessions ( also called freshies) are possibly my favorite. Everything is in a hush, a liquid honey calm of newness and quiet love. The excitement comes later, the joy is deep and full. Moms are newly minted in their motherhood, dads are all trembling hands and whispered tenderness. The time in the hospital is a bubble cut out of real life, bonding, adjusting to the new normal and just breathing in that new, new, NEW baby smell.  

 

I had the joy of capturing this little dude joining his family not that long ago and it was precious. Jules hadn't been named yet when I met him, and hadn't even met his big brother. I am so LUCKY to have my job and be let into moments like these, I was invited to watch and document big brother Remy meeting his little brother for the first time. I actually cried on the way home because it was so sweet and beautiful.

Dad was so tender and loving with his second, new son. This family is overflowing with love and it is truly special to watch. Of course, mom was head over heels for her newest baby; all heart eyes and kisses.

Kaylee & Cavan : a Denver Birth Story

Every birth story is phenomenal, exciting, terrifying and wonderful; this story is all those things and more.

 

I don't want to get TOO into details about the struggle mom and dad went through to bring these precious babies into the world, suffice to say that it was hard and long and full of disappointments and sorrows. We tend to take fertility for granted and then suddenly it's difficult and we are totally unprepared for that.  These parents powered through like troopers and their reward was these perfect babies.

I am lucky to know these awesome two through my lovely wife ( she works with dad) and so one morning, she called me and said, "I think you need to get the babysitter, Chris just rushed out of here looking scared".  I texted mom right away and sure enough, her water had broken at 34 weeks and 5 days and we were in GO TIME.

I arrived about 45 minutes before her scheduled c section, so we sat around joking about the weird faces attached to the pain chart and making nervous jokes to lighten the mood.  Mom and Dad had waited 6 years for these little guys and the moment was now SO CLOSE.

Finally, it was time to get ready to go into surgery. Since Alisha was early, we hadn't gotten permission from the doctor yet for me to be in the room and since she was having twins, they basically instantly vetoed extra people being in the room.

and then. they were here.

Because both babies were born before the 36 week mark they were taken straight to NICU where they had to stay for a minimum of 12 hours to monitor them. Both babies were incredibly healthy and came out truly perfect!

Because of health complications, mom wound up waiting 9 hours to see her little ones ( she had to be cleared to move safely). The meeting was intensely beautiful and still brings tears to my eyes.
