I recently received a very calm call from my client, Kristen, who said, "My water just broke so we're heading to the hospital. I know I'm a month early, so if you can't make it (to photograph the arrival) don't worry about it!"
Well, I did make it for the arrival. Sort-of. Mom and Baby are fine, but Mr. JD needed to come out via C-Section, so, no photographer allowed!
I did get shots in the waiting room (the one here was apparently taken the moment JD was born - see the clock?!), and the little guy resting in the NICU after arrival.
