Carter Lucas | Iowa City, Iowa Birth

Riley is a fellow photographer and a really good friend of mine. We first met in 2013, I had heard of her photography business and we had a few mutual friends on Facebook. Our first time "hanging out" was when she helped me shoot my first wedding ever! We got along right away and have been friends (and co-workers) ever since! 

Just a little over two years ago, she photographed my daughter Nova's birth. A couple of weeks ago, I got to be with her for the birth of her son, in the same hospital. Riley totally rocked labor and delivery! Carter Lucas was born at 4:54 pm on March 22nd, 2017. He was just an ounce shy of 9 pounds and was 20.5 inches long! He is already so loved by all of his family and friends, and Lilah is such a good big sister to him. Below are some of my favorites from his birth story!
