Happy Birthday Waylon! |Houston, TX Birth Photographer

Congratulations Adrian + Zuch!!! This birth, this mom, this couple, this baby, this family... they are all so dear to my heart!!! Thanks so much for trusting me with documenting Waylon's first day!

I have been so excited to share this birth story with you. It was such an amazing day for me as a photographer. You can just feel all the love!




Here is the story from Adrian's perspective: 

Tell us a bit about yourself, and what number baby/birth you're sharing with us.

- I'm not very good at answering this question but I'll give it a try! Zach and I met at work and our friendship grew into a relationship pretty quickly. We work in the construction industry, he builds homes and I sell them. From the time we started dating I knew he would be an amazing companion and one day father. When we found out we were expecting we were not trying for a baby but we were confident in our relationship and ability to take on this exciting new chapter together. Zach is a big golfer and hunter, so when we found out we were having a boy he was over the moon to have a future little hunting and golfing buddy. This is our first baby and he has quickly become the center of our universe!


What was your due date, and what was your baby's birth date?

-Our due date was February 6th and he was born on February 13th.


What was babies weight and length?

-6 pounds and 14 ounces, he was 20" long


How was your birth experience different from what you imagined it to be?

-We went into labor around 6am and labored until 2:30pm and ended up having to be rushed in for an emergency C-section because the babies heart rate dropped. It was a very quick transition and the baby was officially born at 2:52pm. I originally planned on a traditional labor and delivery and not a C-section but we have a healthy happy baby so that is all that matters!


What do you remember the most about your birth?

-They had to put me to sleep for the C-section and when I woke up Zach brought the baby over so I could see him and he had a full head of hair and looked just like his daddy.
