Olivia Marie: New Orleans Birth Photographer

Even before she was pregnant, Jessica knew she wanted a birth photographer. This little baby was hoped and prayed for over quite some time before she came to be. Due to some health concerns, an induction was planned for before her due date. Jessica went to her 38 week checkup, not sure if she would be staying to have a baby! If she had progressed enough on her own, and everything looked favorable for an induction, they would go for it! Well, she was 5 cm, so Jessica and Ryan headed over to the hospital. It was almost time to meet this little one! Family began to gather, as the excitement about baby Olivia grew.

Jessica got her epidural, and was hoping to rest for a little bit. She was still 5cm, so I stepped out for a while, but decided to stay at the hospital – just in case. But this little girl was ready to come, and even with the epidural, Jessica could tell that things were changing. In under an hour Jessica went from 5 to 10cm! It was time to push!
