{Meredith Birth}

I had just the COMPLETE honor and privilege to photography this beautiful baby coming into the world. It was one of the most touching and humbling things I've ever been able to do for someone. I don't know about her mom and dad, but I love them!! And I love Meredith!! I hope I get to document this day for many more moms and dads to come! It's so special!!

Click here to watch the video (I'd recommend it - it's wonderful)

You want to know what deep love looks like? Look at dads face here ... one of my favorite pictures of all time.

I took over 300 pictures, but 30 sums it up nicely... if you'd like to see what I left out... click here.

Congratulations you guys! She. Is. Perfection! So glad I could be a part of it, truly!!
Now, go get some sleep!!!


  1. Hailey, these pictures are so beautiful! I never even would have thought to want something like this and now that i've seen these it makes me so jealous..I would love to have these moments doesn't hurt that Ashley is absolutely stunning! I agree too that those first moments of them seeing Meredith are stunning! Congratulations Ballard's!!!

  2. Hailey - that was beautiful - you truly have a talent that is beautifully expressed in the miracle of birth. This is a treasure for this family.

  3. These are so beautiful! I tried to get Keith to let me do this last time but he thought it was too weird. Here's to hoping these pictures sway him to my side!

  4. Hailey! These pictures are incredible! I can't believe how beautifully you captured the moment, and so respectfully as well. What a treasure for the Ballard family!
