If you missed my announcement of a new website, go check it out! I'm working as a portrait and birth photographer in the Kansas City Metro Area (Shawnee, Olathe, Overland Park, and Lawrence, KS). For my birth loving readers, you'll enjoy seeing some of the birth story videos (shared with family's permission).
The most recent birth I photographed went VERY quick! Mom called in the middle of the night to say she was in triage at the hospital and was dilated to an 8! She'd been having contractions for a couple hours, but didn't thought she had more time because it wasn't very painful. Usually I arrive at the hospital around 4 or 5 cm, so I knew it was going to be a close call. I was out of bed and driving towards SMMC within 5 minutes. Along the way, Dad called and said Mom was now at a 9; I found out later that Dad wasn't even at the hospital yet. Things were going fast! When I arrived at the hospital, Mom was pushing and Baby was born within 15 minutes. Baby and Mom were both healthy and we got some great pictures after birth and with a Fresh Baby hospital session later. It was quite an exciting day!

I'll be doing mostly portrait sessions until going on-call again in November. If you'd like to follow along with my adventures in birth and portrait photography, you can also find them on Facebook at: http://facebook.com/morganlangphotography.
