Sarah, Brad, and Isaac
April 24, 2009
You might remember the photos that I posted from my friend Sarah’s first ultrasound a couple months ago. She and Brad are expecting their second child, and they’ve invited me to share in the experiences of seeing their little one growing. It’s truly an honor to be there when they see the baby.
I took these photos like a fly on the wall, with just a couple fast lenses and no flash. I love these photos because they are 100% candid and so full of love and emotion. Thank you very much, Sarah and Brad, for asking me to be there with you.

Arriving at the midwife’s office. This was the appointment that Sarah had been eagerly anticipating for weeks — the day they would learn the baby’s sex. Sarah wore pink in honor of the event; Brad wore blue.
The baby was healthy and beautiful. Laura, the midwife, was patiently waiting for the baby to reveal his or her sex, but the little one didn’t feel like cooperating that day.
Laura finally told Sarah that they’d have to wait a couple more weeks and try again later.
Sarah kept a smile on her face…
… but she was disappointed.
The best things in life are worth waiting for.
