Welcome Baby Brody!

Filed under: Photography,Portraits — chantal @ 12:14 pm

Congratulations are due to Erin & Sean who welcomed their 4th child into the world last night. Brody was born at 9:17pm! I had the absolute pleasure and honor to be there for most of the event. (See yesterday’s post). Words simply can not describe what a momentous evening this was, both for me and for the proud parents. So I’ll let the pictures do the talking…

Preparing for the epidural


With our without medication, labor is never easy, especially 14+ hours!


from last night’s post…


It was all worthwhile! A healthy baby boy!!


Brody’s FIRST portrait! (Mom’s a photographer so this is only first of MANY)


Minutes after being born…




Proud parents…


Some baby-goodness, in the nursery…


Look at that smile on a beaming fathers face!!


To Erin & Sean: THANK YOU so much for allowing me to document this time in your family’s life. I can’t express how much this has touched me, and has forever changed how I approach my photography. You let me in during some very intimate moments and I can only pray that the pictures will do you justice. My prayers will be with you always for many blessings as you raise your beautiful family!



  1. Just amazing Chantal. The one where he’s being weighed is just screaming with life. Amazing
