What an honour to photograph my nephew’s birth story. Elias Gabriel Corona made me an Aunt for the first time and he has me wrapped around his fingers. My sister lives a few hours away, so when I got the call that she was in labor we left right away. My parents were already there when me, my sister, and my two sons arrived. My sister was labouring at her home, dancing and breathing through contractions. We all supported and loved her, including my two year old who offered her water in-between contractions. When Kayla decided it was time to head to the hospital, we all packed up and set up camp in the waiting room. Hours went by, my youngest fell asleep, and we snacked on food from Chik-Fil-A (praise the Lord for those waffle fries, right?). Watching my brother-in-law care for my sister during labor was so heart-warming. He never left her side and stayed ready at all times for the arrival of their son. We praise God for the easy arrival of Elias Gabriel into this world. He is SO loved by his family and we pray endless blessings on him. Welcome, sweet one!
30A is a happy place for us, and I love it when there’s an extra pair of hands to snap some shots of me and my precious boys. 2020 has been an insane year and one we will all remember because of Covid-19. Quarantines, store and restaurant closures, flight cancellations. Thankfully, we were able to travel to Seaside (apparently airline tickets are super cheap amidst a pandemic). We made the most of our stay, breathing in the clean ocean air and enjoying quality time with each other.
