It was very special to witness and photograph Ann and Brendan welcoming their second child into the world. Ann was the most positive and cavalier I've ever seen a woman in labor be. She laughed and smiled through the process and won over the entire staff. By the time she was ready to push she gave one big push and out popped little Tierney. I'm not joking! The doctor couldn't believe it (you'll see some great expressions from the doctor below) and the room was jovial and laughing as they exclaimed and recounted the "one push".
Thank you to the staff of UCLA medical in Santa Monica for being so warm and welcoming and to Ann and Brendan for being so open and allowing me to share these photos. Enjoy this beautiful and unique birth story!
A week later I was able to follow up with Ann and Brendan for an in home newborn session with sweet baby girl Tierney and big brother Kieran.
