Today is Morgan's first birthday!! And in honor of that, here is her birth story! Happy first birthday beautiful girl!

Jessica is one of my dear friends and I had the honor of witnessing her gorgeous daughter's birth in November last year. Morgan's birth was a whirlwind for sure!

At 7am the morning her daughter was born, I received a text from Jessica telling me that today was the day and that her water broke at 3am! Yay! I told her to let me know when she was around 6cm and I would head right over.

Around noon I hadn't heard any word on how things were progressing so I checked in to have Jessica tell me that they started her on pitocin about an hour earlier and that the contractions were coming on strong. Around 2:30 in the afternoon I got a text from her husband letting me know that it was "probably about time" and that she was at 6cm the last time they checked. I immediately grabbed my stuff and headed for the car. By the time I arrived at the hospital, parked and found the right room, Jessica was already pushing. Eek! It only took me about 25 minutes to get to her and she had Morgan within 10 minutes of me being in the room. Crazy, right?! And this was her first birth! I know I'm jealous. 

After Morgan was born I had the pleasure of sticking around for about an hour or so to photograph baby with mama and baby with daddy. I could not be more thrilled for these beautiful friends of mine! Jessica is also a fellow photographer and photographed me with my sweet baby boy that arrived only three and a half months later.

Love you beautiful lady!!
