Getting asked to photograph a birth by another photographer is such a huge honor, I have gotten to meet so many photographers thanks to this special gift I have been given. Kaethe was no exception. Not only did I get to find out about her pregnancy super early, but it allowed us to be in contact for nearly 9 months! By the time is was delivery day, I felt like we were practically best friends! It didn’t hurt that she is also a birth photographer and we share a love of the Seahawks, it was an instant connection!
Kaethe and her husband decided not to find out what they were having, so when baby girl #4 made her arrival, it was so fun to see everyone’s reaction! Suprise, excitement, shock! One of the awesome things about this birth was it was at the same hospital, with the same doctor, in the same room that I delivered my daughter in just 7 months earlier!
Ever since the birth of sweet Kaelin, I have become even closer with Kaethe, and I now consider her one of my really good friends. It’s so fun to watch one of “my” babies grow up right in front of me!
Kaethe has been SO patient in waiting for this blog post, so without further ado, here is the birth of Kaelin!
