Birth: Grady Tyler | Orlando Birth Photography

AMAZING. That is the only way I can describe photographing a new, tiny, precious person coming into this world. To be a part of the beginning of new life is one of the most amazing things anyone can do and I LOVE it!

Carrie has been one of my best friends for over seven years. When she asked me if I had done birth photography or would like to photograph her birth I jumped at the opportunity. For the past few months I have been thinking about doing it but was not sure if/when the right time would be. God put our two paths together and we ended up with this beautiful birth story of Grady Tyler.

I arrived at Orlando Health | Health Central at about 5:30am on March 4, 2014. All was quite and still.

Carrie & Rich’s Pastor Dawn came up to the hospital that morning to say a prayer with them before Carrie’s C-Section delivery.

Everything was prepped and ready. The amount of love and support they had that morning was amazing. Their parents and pastor as well
as their doctor and anesthesiologist took a moment to hold hands and say a prayer for the miracle of life that was about to happen.

One last kiss before the surgery begins. In just a few moments they would become a family of four.

Rich was suited up and ready to go into the operating room to watch his child (the gender was a surprise by the way) enter into this world.

and this is the moment that forever changed me. Grady’s first moment in this world as he was gently guided out by the doctor.

Next up, a trip to the waiting room to let everyone know what the baby was! There was so much joy in this moment.

And the moment all the grandparents were waiting for… a first look at their newest family member.

And another breathtaking moment as daddy held his little boy for the first time.

My absolute favorite moment of the day when Carrie finally got to hold her new precious baby boy.
