I work with many lovely and talented photographers in my area.  Two of which I share Oak & Ivory, our studio.  Jocelyn, one of my partners, messaged me while I knew she was on vacation.  Her beautiful sister-in-law was in labor 4 weeks early!  We were surprised and I was delighted to fill in at the birth in Provo, at Utah Valley Regional Medical Center.

We saw the add for The Comfort Channel and had to try it out.  Our first look at it was not very comforting, a depiction of a nurse helping a patient to the restroom.  But, as labor continued we had one more go at it and found it worked!  At least for Dad!

 

A moment of zen for daddy, right before pushing.
