I had the honor to photograph the birth of sweet baby Raiyu. His mom Laura and his dad Adam were sooo excited to welcome their little man into the world. Mama’s water broke at 1a.m. on LABOR DAY! I got the call at 6 a.m. and then headed to the Beach Cities Midwfery birth center shortly after. Raiyu made his mama labor all day on LABOR Day and made his grand entrance at 4:09p.m. on September 5th, 2016. He weighed in at 7 lbs. 13 oz. and was 20.5″ long.
Beach Cities Midwery is awesome, I love that place! I had my 3rd baby girl at the same birth center, in the room across the hall from where Raiyu was born. Nancy Pol was the attending midwife and her and the entire team was amazing!!! It was a pleasure watching them do their magic and document the entire birth story.
Below I’m sharing a few of my favorite photos from Raiyu’s birth. If you’d like to see more, please view their slideshow here: Raiyu’s Birth Story.
Congratulations again to the happy family and welcome to our beautiful world Raiyu!
