As many of you know, we were expecting another baby, due September 1st. Not exactly the best timing for a photographer when the fall is considered our busy season. I was doing everything in my power to work in as many sessions as I could before our little guy made his arrival. Unfortunately, babies don’t follow due dates and they come into the world on their own terms! Little Cooper did just that arriving 16 days early and surprising us all!
I just finished Ryan’s senior portrait session and went into labor 30 minutes later! Talk about cutting it close. Since we weren’t expecting his arrival just yet, Brian was out of town visiting his best friend and James was out of town camping with friends. Luckily, my sister was able to watch Emi while I drove myself to the hospital. Yes, it was a whirlwind for all of us, but thankfully Brian arrived at the hospital in time and we welcomed Cooper Leonard Parlin into the world on August 16th at 2:50 AM! Cooper was just a little peanut weighing 6 pounds 7 ounces and measuring 19 inches long <3
Thank you to my amazing clients who were so willing to reschedule sessions, are patiently waiting for product delivery and those that are waiting for their ordering appointments. I am so grateful that you all selected me to capture your beautiful families and a I appreciate you giving me time to get adjusted to my new family as well <3
