I experienced the most beautiful thing yesterday. My friends Mayelene and Kelly welcomed their 2nd child, Baby Bradyn, into the world!! I had the distinct privilege of witnessing the birth and documenting it with my camera. I’ve never seen the birth of a baby before (I missed that sex ed class, apparently) so I had no idea what to expect and if I’d even be able to handle it. It was really hard to see my friend in so much pain and I tried to hold back the tears and keep it professional. But when it came time to push, not only was I surprisingly ok, I thought it was the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen. The minute I saw little Bradyn’s perfect face, my heart melted and I fell in love and couldn’t hold the tears back any longer. Maye was just…well, let’s just say I am in awe of her and her strength. In fact, I am in awe of all you mothers…you’re all amazing. Seriously.
Mayelene and Kelly, thank you for including me in such an important day in your lives. It was an honor to be there with you and to meet Baby Bradyn right after birth. He’s absolutely perfect. <3
