Welcome to the world Baby Marc! [ chattanooga birth photographer ]

Several weeks back, our family had the opportunity to welcome the adorable Baby Marc into the world. It has been quite awhile since I have done a session for Jason and Theresa and Brianna, but I have a feeling you’ll be seeing a lot more of them, now that Baby Marc has arrived.

I was supposed to be out of town with Nathan, but at the last minute prior to the trip, I made the decision to stay home. Just a couple of days into the trip, I got a call from Theresa saying that she was in labor and headed to the hospital. I was so excited that I was in town and available to get to the hospital to photograph the big day.

Theresa was in such great spirits. I was kinda amazed by how calm she was. Her sister, Michelle, was there to support her, and the three of us had a great time just hanging out during the early stages of Theresa’s labor.

Jason arrived a bit later on, and he had Brianna with him. She was very curious about all of the monitors that were attached to her Mommy… and she was VERY impatient for her baby brother to arrive.

Theresa tried to get a bit of sleep, but I have no idea how she managed with all of the nurses and monitors and alarms.

Theresa stayed so strong and calm, even during the hardest phase of labor. I was amazed by her spirit.

And suddenly, a beautiful baby boy was introduced to the world. He was perfect.

Jason looks like quite a happy new daddy, doesn’t he?

Baby Marc was a big boy… Isn’t he perfect? 21 inches. 8 pounds 5 ounces. Perfect.

Little bitty hands…little bitty feet.

Love those first snuggles…

Healthy set of lungs… :)

Brianna was very happy to meet her new baby brother. The first thing she said about him was “He’s not wearing any clothes. He’s wearing a hat. He’s so silly!” Something about that struck me as adorable :)

There was such an amazing sense of family in the room… Everyone was so excited.

There were a few quiet moments in the midst of all the family fun…

Theresa had a few moments to snuggle with both of her babies…

It was a very good day. Baby Marc is pretty great, don’t you think?

Congratulations Jay and Theresa… we are SO happy for you guys. Marc is perfect. Can’t wait to see you all again. I hope you enjoy your slideshow!

much love,
