a beautiful beginning: desmond & brody’s birth story.

Witnessing Desmond & Brody’s birth on 4.28.11 was truly one of the most amazing experiences of my life and I cannot thank you guys enough for allowing me to be there. Every birth is beautiful, but there was just something a little extra special about twins 🙂 Even though Alisha did not have the home birth she originally planned, she had a wonderful experience at the hospital and was still able to have a natural birth. Yes – you read that right – she pushed 2 babies out without any drugs! Alisha is one of the strongest women I know and it was so touching to get a glimpse of her incredible relationship with Ben and her faith in God throughout her labor. After about 7 hours of hard labor, Alisha & Ben were rewarded with 2 beautiful baby boys. Desmond Cole was born around 4:30am and Brody Cole came about an hour later. Desmond weighed in at 6.5lbs and Brody was just a little smaller at 5.14lbs. The slideshow tells the story way better than I can, so please enjoy as Alisha & Ben welcome their 2 firstborns into the world. As always, mommy approved all the images. Enjoy.

peace, kelly

That is my cousin Alisha and her precious little boys Desmond and Brody!! She is truly an amazing friend, wife, and mom. Look how gorgeous she is during natural labor (of twins at that). The photography was amazing and I am hoping to use Kelly for my birth photography with the birth of our little girl estimated to be around June 30th 🙂

[…] and I happened to be at the hospital the same night she was born because I was there photographing Alisha’s birth. Sarah and her hubby Brett did not find out whether they were having a boy or girl and I will never […]

Kelly, absolutely beautiful work! It’s neat seeing the direction that your photography is heading. I don’t think enough photographers are capturing as unique moments as this. These are absolutely beautiful and something the parents and children will cherish as they grow. Thanks for posting such a beautiful blog/story. I can’t wait to see them all. ~Alyson
