DREAM (BIRTH)DAY. I got the "you should probably come!" text around 7:00am so I made my way to the Mellinger's home just an hour before Jamie and Bryana found out... it was A GIRL! Bryana had dreamed of doing a home birth and it was such a magical moment to see the excitement and pure joy on her and Jamie's faces after their little Emilyn was in their arms. Bryana was a CHAMP and everyone in the room was cheering her on. <3 She had the best support system and cheerleader in her husband Jamie and they created such a peaceful environment to welcome their third baby, complete with twinkling lights and photos of their family. Hours later, Charlie and Jaxon came home to meet their baby sister and I CAN'T EVEN HANDLE the obsession. They're obsessed with her and I'm obsessed with all three of them!!! Lots of hugs, kisses, and the sweetest commentary thanks to Charlie... "Her is my baby" is "Her is soooo sleepy!" just get my every time. Jamie and Bryana are truly some of the kindest, most thoughtful people and it was such a joy to capture + celebrate this day alongside them!
