Colorado Springs Birth Photographer- Birth of Baby Elyse
December 8, 2016
Alex & Aaron are parents to a handsome 2 year old little boy Eli, and an angel baby named Amaya Lee. She was born early at 23 1/2 weeks. She lived for close to three hours before Alex and Aaron saw Amaya take her last breaths. They have a special monkey and necklace that they brought to the birth of their rainbow daughter Elyse to remember their Amaya.
When they contacted me to photograph the birth of their expected daughter, I knew this would be a very special birth. Alex had a high risk pregnancy, so an induction was part of the plan. I got the call that she was being induced at 8:00am on the 29th of November. I got all my ducks in a row, and headed over to the hospital around noon.
When I arrived Alex was just starting to feel the contractions kick in. She started pushing at nearly 5:00pm and their beautiful daughter Elyse was born at 5:52. Weighing 6lbs 1oz and 18 3/4 inches long she let out a strong, loud cry. The moment Alex and Aaron saw their beautiful baby girl was a moment I will never forget. As a birth photographer, woman and mother, I felt so blessed to share this special moment with them.
