Sometimes you are just so busy running a business, you forget to run your business, you know? That must be what happened here because we have only posted two weddings from our 2017 season...but we have done quite a few more. For some reason, this one sticks out in my mind. Maybe because I shot this one by myself (something typically Jared does). But probably the reason is, I loved this family. I loved this wedding. I had a great time being a fly on the wall and watching all the joy shared. Best wishes to the happy couple!
Yea for NYE! Jared and I have notoriously dull new years. There are many years we have been asleep before midnight. But, this year was a BLAST!!! We loved getting to know Kenneth and Nicole, and had sooooo much fun! We rung in the new year in the gorgeous presidential suite and its private rooftop balcony. We did the photos and video for this swanky affair. Video to come later.
I do not think it is possible to put in to words how much I love shooting births. I love the emotion of the day, the ups and downs, and of course, the moment when you get the big pay off and hold your baby for the first time.
I will never forget the first time I held my baby boy... the moment is seared in my mind. But I do wish I had some photos of that moment too. That is what I find so rewarding about this work. I KNOW how important this day is-- for me, it was the first day of me, the new me, the person I am now that I have someone else to care about. It taught me what is important, focused me, and mellowed me out.
The other part of this birth that was soooooo amazing, was Amber had the same doctor and delivered in the same room that I delivered my first born. It was almost eerie to be back there, almost exactly five years since I had my baby boy. It was a 'full circle' moment, for sure.
Amber was amazing. She had a natural birth, but she was so calm and collected the nurses thought she had had an epidural. They had already had a very long night before I arrived at 5:30AM, but she was so mellow, she was even able to take some naps between contractions. Way to go, Mama! I am in awe of you.
On Uber's Ice Cream Day, Oklahoma's own Gary Busey handed out ice cream to some lucky Uber users. This was a day to remember!
