I posted on my Facebook page a while ago about the fact I was to photograph the birth of a baby boy and it turned out to be the most widely shared entry since I started the page.
Well... The due date of March 18th came and went as it appears due dates are known to do.
The parents, Ben and Lauren.. friends of mine, waited patiently as possible and I virtually slept with my cameras, batteries charged and ready to go. Finally on Saturday March 27 at 5:00 PM I got the call to go to the University of Michigan C.S. Mott Children's Hospital.
Family and friends were there and I am immensely touched that I was included in this exciting and personal event. The nurses were amazing and I am currently working with the University of Michigan to be able to do a separate blog entry showing them at work.
The photos here were shot between 5:39 PM and 8:27 PM. The photo of the nurse holding the baby was taken at 6:04 PM on the dot.
