Oh boy! This day was nothing short of perfect. We definitely lucked out with a great baby and amazing ladies to capture our day. Both my photographer Amie Pendle and Krissi Cook http://www.krissicookfilms.com/ have been great friends of mine!
I have to brag about miss Krissi for a second. She rocked two weddings in a row that she filmed before mr. Revel came. The last wedding she had shot was the night before at it ended at midnight… then she woke up at the butt crack of dawn to drive 4 hours to catch his birth! Talk about an amazing friend. We also lucked out with her. She called me only 4 days before his arrival offering to film his birth. Um hello angel… I knew I could trust her with this since she also filmed our wedding day! We just love you Krissi.
Now for miss Amie. Man words cant express how grateful I am that this woman stepped in to mine and my families life. Most all pictures you will see on social media were most likely taken by her haha. Moving to Saint George was really rough for me. Leaving all my friends, family and my business that just started to take off to nothing. I was starting all over again! Amie reached out with her warm friendship and the rest is history. She has made this move so much easier and has made living in Saint George enjoyable! Love you Aimes
Well it was a pretty fast day really. I got induced this around unlike giving birth to Brightyn. But both births were easy and smooth ( I thank the lucky stars above!) We were told that between 8-10 am August 14th we would be coming to the hospital for the big day. Well all morning we were antsy. Then before we knew it , it was already 10:15 no phone call! So I called the nurse and she said hang tight you guys are next. FINALLY 12:30 rolls around and we were told to head down at 1! Can I just tell you getting induced is pretty cool. I got to take a shower before hand… even had time to shave! Well as much as a 9 month pregnant lady can shave! Got myself ready and ate a big breakfast.
Once to the hospital they starting a pitocin drip and told me the doctor would be in by 2 to break my water. Well 2 came… after the water broke it was the waiting game. I decided to call my photographer and video gal around 3-3:30 to get shots of the hospital while we waited. They arrived around 4 then all the sudden I started progressing. By 5 pm I was dilated to a 6 then by 5:30 I was a 10! It was long before I held my baby boy in my hands… 5:38 Revel Hawke Hanvey was born! He came out perfect with no complications!
Now this whole time my biggest stress was loosing the strong bond I have with my three year old. I mean it had only been me and miss Brighty for THREE years! We did everything together! Honestly I over analyzed the entire thing. I made sure to have a gift from brother when she came. She loved that he bought her a present. It was a baby doll. I thought it would be perfect so she could take care of HER baby while mom had to take care of baby brother. Well she loved the gift so much she thought everyone who came to the hospital had a gift for her haha! Luckily most everyone thought about miss Brighty and did bring her a gift. That really made my little girls world. As for our relationship its even better… she has a big job to be a big sister now! She can’t get enough of him!
The next day after we all got some rest Amie cruised by to get some more shots of mr. handsome for his Happy Birthday!! Prepare to just die!
