witnessing these first moments with baby liv were so heart-warming. we knew that labor would be quick based on their son's quick arrival a year before. knowing i likely wouldn't be able to make it in time for the birth, we still planned on me rushing there to document everything afterwards.

be sure to check out the placenta images! did you get a "placenta tour" to learn how of how it nourished your baby? it's such an amazing organ! 

liv was welcomed into this world with love and warmth. i adore this beautiful family. <3
