a birth story: theodore armor

Let me first say that this mama, Trista, is a WARRIOR. After about 51 hours of labor, a precautionary move from home to hospital, and 4+ hours of pushing, she brought little Theo into the world. I was exhausted for her! And I never heard her complain. She just kept going, determined to bring her little one into the world on her own…although she wasn’t really on her own. Her husband, Tyler, is a champion too. His encouraging words and touches lasted through every last contraction and push. What a team! I was so honored to be there to document the moments leading up to Theo’s birth as well as his very first breaths. I’ll never forget the looks on Trista and Tyler’s faces when the midwife said it was time to push. Tears and excitement and relief all at once.  And when Tyler got to “catch” Theo as he arrived…amazing. Thank you so much for letting me witness this day. I can’t wait to see little Theo again for his newborn shoot!
