The Birth Of Miss Layla Susanna Marie VanDam

I'm not a photographer. I'm not claiming to take amazing pictures or being able to capture that perfect moment. But I am very proud of this slideshow. I stood ON MY FEET :) and was able to capture moments in time that will never happen again. It feels amazing to have been a part of something so huge.

Without further ado...

Enjoy the beautiful birth of Layla... :)

LOVE IT! Can I fly you down to WV so you can photograph this next one :)!?! I would love to have all of those pictures to remember such a special occasion. I always swore I wouldn't forget a single minute of my birth experiences...but it just happens...that's why I LOVE pictures so much. Helps me remember all those moments!
