There are no words after you witness a birth.
Those first breaths. Those first moments of life. The smiles and tears and laughter that fill the room.
It truly is magical.
There is a photo my dad took at Parker’s birth of my mom, my MIL Terri and C’s cousin Shayne all with hands clasped to their mouths, tears on their cheeks and a look of wonder in their eyes. It was taken seconds after Parker came flying out and into the world. And I never quite understood their looks until I started photographing births.
It is truly a magical experience. It’s amazing.
And this morning at 8am I got to witness little Phoebe Marshal Dunn enter the world!
And because I really am at a loss of how to describe what I was blessed to be a part of… let’s just let the images tell the story!
You are loved.
I *LOVE* this genre of photography and want to do TONS of it! Fantastic series! 🙂
been waiting for this day, so glad she has arrived safe and sound. Tears are streaming, love to mom and dad and big sister.
Thanks SO much – to you and theDunns – for sharing these images with all of us so soon!
Choir was preoccupied all morning, thinking, praying and talking about all of them!
Can’t wait to meet the newest member of Emmanuel choir!
Love to Mom, Dad and Allison!
This is amazing. Feel as if we were there! I can’t tell who she looks like yet, but she is adorable.
Welcome Phoebe M.D… and congrats Mom, Dad and Alison!!! I’m so, so happy that all is/are well and Jodie certainly did a fabulous job photographing the highlights! Thank you for sharing this special event! hugs, Susan
These. Are. GORGEOUS.
We all enjoyed looking at your pictures! Phoebe is beautiful and we can’t wait to meet her. Thanks for sharing this wonderful event! 🙂 Margaret, Mark, Creighton and Charlie
You’re in for a great life, Ms. Phoebe! Awesome shots, Jod, like only you can take. Capturing the moments, the emotion, the love…oh, and E in all his glory! Ha! Congrats J – you are such a strong, gracious woman/mom with such great faith. Enjoy every moment with your girls. We can’t wait to meet you, Phoebe!
I love them! I would love something like that for myself as well. One question though- how did you manage to get into the O.R.?
Oh goodness. Birth pictures always make me cry. These are beautiful. 🙂
Congratulations Jen, Eric, and Big Sister Alison! These pictures are so beautiful…well, maybe with the exception of the first one of Eric in his scrubs…that one is just plain funny!:) We love you guys and can’t wait to meet Miss Phoebe!
Beautiful pictures- congrats!
What a precious little baby and what a gift to have her birth chronicled so beautifully. Congratulations!
The inky feets — that is my favorite!
Beautiful birth photos, Jodie. Yes, like only you can. I’m so jealous – two out of four births that I have photographed have been c-sections, and the hospitals around here won’t allow photographers in the O.R. Good for you – and great for them! Priceless photos of little Phoebe’s entrance into the big world!
What a blessing! So happy for all of you. Thank you so much for sharing these amazing photos. Congratulations to big sister Alison.
Thanks so much for these wonderful pictures. For Grandparents in Maryland, it helped to make us feel closer to Phoebe’s arrival.
Beautiful pictures, Jodie! Welcome to Phoebe and congrats to Jen, Eric, and Alison. We are so thankful that all is well!

Welcome to the world, Phoebe. You look like a very determined young lady. We can’t wait to see you to explain why you should pull for Carolina.
Congratulations to Jen, Eric, and big sister Alison.

Blessings to your family.

Congratulations! What a beautiful baby girl. Phoebe is very lucky to have such an awesome family. Can’t wait to meet her.
Congratulations to Jen, Eric and Alison! We’re so happy that Phoebe has arrived successfully and will be part of your awesome family! The big question: will she be a soprano or a tenor? Love to you all!!!
