Eva Mercedes: Birth Story – Northern VA Birth Photographer

“This is a holy moment
Now something of heaven touches earth
Voices of angels all resound
We join their song”
-Matt Redman
Nicole has been one of my closest friends for the past 16 years, and last week I had the honor and privilege to be present as she became a mama for the first time. The day was full of happy tears and first breaths, which make for a beautiful combination. Nicole truly made labor look easy, something I didn’t think was possible! We sat and chatted for about 3 hours, she pushed for 15- 20 minutes, and then Miss Eva was here. A perfect 6 pounds 2 ounces, with the sweetest disposition, and a big bow on top of her head already! This baby girl already has SO many people wrapped around her little bitty finger, and is more loved than she will ever know. Make sure you check back next week to see Eva’s official newborn portraits! Nicole and Dan, I’m honored you would even consider having me photograph Baby Rod’s birth day. Thank you for letting me share in your joy that day and letting me snuggle your girl for a few minutes! Can’t wait to watch my sweet little “wonder niece” grow :)

xoxo, jessie
