quite a journey – austin newborn photographer

Amber was due mid-February and the due date came and went and I just hadn’t heard anything. My own due date was quickly approaching and of course I was getting HUGE and uncomfortable. I finally heard from Amber while I was at the birth center just starting my own labor 🙂 I can’t believe I actually answered my phone while my labor was beginning.

Turns out that Amber and baby had quite a rough journey. Amber was “super woman” and endured a 30+ hour labor. And baby Hudson had some complications and had to stay in the NICU. All around, it was a rough couple of weeks for this brand new family.

Fast forward 2 weeks and I was in no place to conduct a full newborn session. I have been exhausted nursing baby Cruz and tending to my other two kids while trying to maintain some sense of normalcy for them. So I invited Amber to come down for a “play” session at my house with Hudson and Cruz.

Hudson was so sweet and cuddly and perfect in every way. He didn’t cry even once while I had him on the bean bag. He was awake and alert and flashed his baby blues to my lens. What a sweetheart!

Congratulations Amber and Rob on your beautiful new addition!!
