A Highly Anticipated Birth! {Wichita Birth Photography}

I've been looking forward to attending the birth of Baby P pretty much since her conception. See, I was lucky enough to get to attend the birth of her big brother G 2.5 years ago. You guys worked so, so, so hard for this beautiful daughter and I am, as always, humbled by the strength of your relationship. The bond you share shines through in these images.

Much love,

working hard

She is beautiful and the images are just perfect. I love the picture of when she heard it was a girl. I'm sure that is exactly what my face looked like when I was told my youngest was a girl. Congrats all around!

These are amazing pictures of all of you. Penelope is so adorable - I am so happy for you, you finally got a baby girl! I wonder if that is how my face looked as well when I found out the twins were both girls. Nathan, you look so happy and relaxed, and the boys are so handsome. What a wonderful family you are!

You two are so blessed! All that you went through before Penelope's conception, made this even more beautiful and worth while. Congradulations, you have a perfect family,
in my eyes.

They are stunning Melissa! I had no idea that a woman could look that beautiful during labor (I think I looked like a shrieking Ogre personally)! :) Penelope is beautiful and her brothers look so proud! Congratulations!

I don't know if you remember me...I was in Wichitamoms until about a year ago, and 2 years ago went to a baby wearing party you were at. I think your little guy was crawling all over the place :D These pictures are gorgeous, congrats!!
