Birth is such a miraculous thing. It is fascinating that we're able to grow a tiny human inside our body and deliver them as breathing, functioning little people. When you're in the moment (it seems like forever), but really it goes by quickly. You miss so many tiny details and moments because you're living it through a horrendous amount of pain. However, we're fortunate that we are now able to relive those moments through photography and video...if we so choose.
This was the first birth that I was able to be a part of as a photographer. And I couldn't have been happier to have it be one of my best friends, who I cherish dearly. Missy was AMAZING. If you know Missy, you know she doesn't make a very big deal of anything...she's laid back, let's things happen as they happen. Well, birth was no different, she made it look easy....a total trooper. I even forgot about some of the moments, and cried all over again looking back through the photos. What an incredible thing to be a part of. Beautiful Lainey was born at 1:39pm on 11/02/2014. She's the most perfect little package to complete the Bachmeier family. Congratulations guys, I am so happy for you!
