Welcome to the World, Ella!
Thanks for stopping by, fellow photo lovers.
The subject of today's blog post is a certain adorable bundle of joy named Ella. She arrived at 6:24 am on July 9 at Elkhart General Hospital. I was truly honored that Ryan and Liz, Ella's parents, let me be a part of this monumental milestone in their lives.
This sweet beauty made her debut in Elkhart weighing 7 pounds 9.6 ounces and measured in at 21 inches long. Liz did a great job throughout the entire labor. She was such a champ and labored drug-free. That never ceases to amaze me!
Ryan said, at one point, that he felt helpless. If he didn't say it outloud, you'd never know it. He was by Liz's side every step of the way. You could see he was overwhelmed with happiness when baby Ella finally entered the world. The love they shared immediately was overwhelming.
“I was so relieved! I couldn't believe she was finally here! I was so happy that she had lots of dark hair. She was so beautiful - I couldn't believe how lucky I was,” said Ella's mom, Liz.
I am so blessed that I got to capture this special moment.
Thanks, Liz and Ryan :)
Have you thought about having your birth photographed, but aren't sure if it's for you? Check out what Liz had to say about her birth coverage: “I am SO glad that we decided to have our daughter's birth photographed. I was nervous that I wouldn't like the final product or that I would feel it was too invasive. On the contrary, these pictures are such an amazing capture of the biggest moment of our life!"
Two interesting things about Baby Ella's big day:
1. There were 11 people in the room the moment she was born.
2. It's my sister-in-law's birthday.
