I love this lady so much!! She’s been a true friend. Someone that I can text and talk too easily. She is so real in her conversations, there is no BS with her. She’s good at coming up with ideas to help any problem you can think of. I’m happy to call her my friend. And I LOVE her cute kiddos!

To say I adore her is an understatement.  I wish there were more people like her in the world. 

Mattie Williamson Birth Story // Brigham City Hospital // Cache Valley Birth Photographer

Mattie texted me at almost midnight. I headed to the hospital in Brigham City and slept in my car until abt 2 when she was at a 7. Then I went in to join the fun and wait to meet the little guy!  

Mattie was such a trooper through it all, laughing and happy, with just a little nerves around the delivery time. She has an infectious personality. Her husband was coming in from working in vernal and we were all hoping he would make it before the baby came.  She kept checking her phone to see where he was.  He got there right in time to shower then help her push. He was a little worried about everything going on as more Dr.'s came in the room to check her progress but handled it all beautifully. 

The baby was face up so her Dr. had another Dr. come double check and see if they needed to do a C- Section, he thought for a little bit they would have to so he had them prep the OR. But her Dr. was amazing and patient -working her through the birth slowly and safely. After a few good pushes she was able to get the cervix up over his forehead and deliver him without a C- Section. He was all swollen from the pressure and his little swollen lips were the cutest thing I’ve ever seen. Her husband said they’d have to call him bubba because his lips were so swollen and big (I thought they were absolutely adorable.)

WELCOME BABY!

A bit of the story from Mattie herself:

He gave us a bit of a scare. Being born "face presentation" (face first instead of crown first.)

Really dangerous and really scary. I don't suggest you google it unless you want to have nightmares. They called the O.R. and respiratory team to be on standby. Somehow they did this and still maintained an extremely calm atmosphere. But by the grace of god and amazing doctors they were able tuck his chin just enough to have him come with minimal damage and no c-section or respiratory team. His voice was almost non-existent, but is slowly healing. He is still horse but sounds so much better. His face was severely swollen, (last 2 pictures) but quickly went down to normal by the end of the day with Hardly any bruising. We came out with literally the best possible outcome for the situation we were in. Face presentation is really rare only happening 1 in every 25,000 births.

Emma Neilsen Family

These guys are so adorable!  Having three girls myself, I have a special place in my heart for other moms and dads with three little girls, and look at sweet these three are!  We had a lot of fun playing together on this shoot and playing games for giggles.  I love this sweet mama too!  She is always so kind, and I love her cute French accent!  Thanks for coming to play with me every year!  I love my repeat customers, which is why when I raise prices, I still give my families who have been with me year after year a great deal.  I love them, and I appreciate them.  YOU are who make this dream possible for me...to be able to record family memories for generations to come.
