Welcoming Leo | Jacksonville Beach Birth Photographer

This Jax Beach family welcomed little Leo this past fall at home. Katie and Joey's connection was what struck me from the very start and it was so sweet to see them bring their third child into this world.  

I remember being so nervous during Hurricane Irma that Katie would go into labor. Thankfully, the little guy held off and was born on October 2nd, just after midnight.

Katie was the quietest woman in labor that I've ever seen! She was so amazing through it all.  With the support of her husband, her mom, and her midwife, Shea, and birth assistant, Katriel, from the Birth Center of Jacksonville, she was able to beautifully deliver this sweet, healthy little boy.

I had the pleasure of getting to visit with Katie and Leo recently and it was so fun to see him smiling so much.  He was born into such a warm and loving family.  I can't wait to see how he continues to grow through the years! 

I love getting to tell these stories. Thick with raw emotion. Pain that leads to joy. Beauty at the end of it all. It's the best thing ever.
