The speedy birth of Marley – Pompano Beach birth photographer

So in the wee hours of the morning, sometime around 2:30ish, I got “the call” that April’s water had broken.

No, not really any contractions yet was the gist of the conversation. Because my adrenaline was pumping, I stayed up until around 4 a.m. then forced myself to try to get some rest.

The next call, maybe 45 minutes later was April.

“Emily. The baby is here!”

Huh? Oh no! Or, ahem, CONGRATS! BUT…

Marley came so peacefully and rapidly into the world, there was no time for a midwife, or photographer on this day. She was caught by her daddy.

It was a planned home birth, yes, but wasn’t supposed to go THIS fast!

I finally arrived some time before sunrise. It was hard to feel disappointed about missing the birth when there was so much joy and love in the room as soon as I walked in.

The beauty of Marley’s birth was illuminated rather perfectly that morning with a sunrise smack in the middle of their bedroom window.
