I met Amy and Josiah at the empower your birth conference back in March and I was thrilled when they were reminded of my Birth Photography services after seeing their friends Gabby and Jesus document the arrival of their precious son Matteo with a Fresh 48 session.
I felt an instant connection with Amy as we corresponded mostly via text message (as many birth photographers do) and we discovered we both have a ridiculous love of emojis! Half of our conversations were filled with “praise hands” blue hearts and excited smiley faces as we waiting for the arrival of her son.
When it was finally time, I met them around midnight at Baby + Co in Nashville, TN. Amy labored long and hard and had a wonderful support partner in Josiah as he helped her through back labor and stayed close to her side through out the night. When their son arrived with the morning light at 7:45 am happy tears, relief, and laughter filled the room.
Their little boy remained without a name for several days after his arrival, but Josiah posted a beautiful blog about how they decided on a name that stands for Peace – Solomon. Welcome little man. The world needs you.
