an erlanger east birth story | chattanooga birth photography

Getting to be part of a brand new person’s entrance into the world is always, always memorable. But when it’s the birth of one of my dearest friends’ first baby, it’s even more poignant and unforgettable for me. This amazing little man was so long-awaited, so deeply longed for, and it was incredible to be there for his arrival. My friend Casey is a warrior mama. That’s all I’m going to say so I don’t cry. xoxo
