Here at Wirken Photography our goal is to be a family historian to as many people as possible. We love to feel like one of the family and be included in monumental life events.
I had the opportunity to do just that with one of my past wedding clients, Julie and Chris. They asked me if I would document the birth of their first child. I jumped at the chance. I have only done this once before when I documented the birth of Becca’s daughter, Charlotte, so to have another chance was exciting to me. I love photographing births as I feel these photos are almost more important than wedding photos. Almost.
It is such a treat to have images that mark the beginning of a new chapter in life. Child birth certainly falls into the monumental category so I was thrilled to be able to do what I do best for Julie and Chris. I am going to let the photos do most of the talking here but I must share one story Julie’s mom recalled. She recalled the moment during Julie’s wedding that they had to have the seamstress come in and literally stitch Julie into her dress as the hook and eye broke.
Julie had to have a c-section and after the birth her mom looked at me and said, “now you have seen Julie get stitched up twice”! So perfect mom.
Lets welcome Elizabeth Ann.

Love Chris’ face. Such a proud parent.

Congrats guys! Thanks for letting me witness yet another milestone in your lives!
