Baby Jonah Kristopher

What a wonderful morning! Kathryn was 8 days overdue and was induced at 9am. I got a text at 11am saying that she was 8cm dilated! I quickly found a babysitter for the boys and went to the hospital just in time. Her total time for all labouring and delivery was just 3 hours! Kris and Kathryn were such a fabulous team and have added a very cute bundle to their family. Here are some pictures of them meeting beautiful baby Jonah and his very first hour of life! Check out Kris' face on the left...that's him seeing Jonah for the first time. I love taking candid shots and Kathryn didn't even realize I was there until about 15 minutes after he was born. Congratulations you guys! Oh ya, he was 7lbs 14oz and did I mention that he was ADORABLE?! I even got a chance to hold him:)

these are amazing!! I just finished telling my hubby that I wished we had done something like this with our second-born (though first born was beautiful, the process--and i--were nowhere CLOSE to being a nice thing to capture).
such precious moments - Kris' face when he first sees his son is just fantastic!

I can't thank you enough, Louise, for capturing Jonah's entry into this world so incredibly beautifully. We will cherish these photos forever, and the slide show continues to bring tears again and again! I will recommend your artistry and phenomenal gifts to anyone and everyone--thank you, thank you for a beautiful rendering of a day that changed our lives. And thanks to the "commentators" for the congratulations, we're so grateful for the well wishes.
