Welcoming Miss Harper [Parker Birth Photographer]

Oh, sweet little Harper. There were so many worries as your family waited for you, and when I got the call to head to the hospital to photograph your birth, I was ready to greet that mix of anxiety and excitement. Truly, though, the overwhelming joy at your coming washed over everything. Your mama was a warrior, especially when labor went from zero to 60 in what felt like mere moments. Your daddy stood ready with love, support, and anything your mama needed. As the morning sun washed over the room, you, sweet little girl, came into a world filled with love for you.

While not every fear can be assuaged at once, at that moment, you were there, and you were healthy enough to be snuggled and admired from near and far as texts and phone calls started flying back and forth to announce your arrival. Welcome to the outside world, sweet girl!
