sister meets brother

Whenever I had Joy Belle, I was a bit out of it for a few days. Not only did everything happen so fast, but she was early and we weren’t prepared. We met our girl via an emergency c-section and to say I was a bit drugged is an understatement. At the time, I felt all there – but looking back there is so much about those first few hours and days that I don’t remember. My memory could be muddled due to pain medicine or emotions flying high, but I didn’t want this delivery to be the same. I wanted to remember meeting my baby boy, my husband seeing his son, and my sweet girl meeting her baby brother for the first time.

Knowing all of this, I decided to have my dear friend, Jay with Click Photography, capture those first few hours and sister meeting brother for me – just in case my memory became cloudy. I can’t express how glad I am I did this! These photos capture Joy Belle’s fear, happiness, and excitement, while documenting our family of four for the first time. I will cherish them always and forever.

I was surprised but so grateful at how easily it helped change her mind about meeting him.
