Waverly Keeler | Greenville, SC Birth Photographer

Her name is unique… just like her red hair that she got from both of her parents.  But it’s difficult coming up with a unique name for your child that they’re going to be identified by for the rest of their life!  But this name – both of her names – are family names and I love that.  Waverly’s great-grandfather’s name was Wavard and Keeler came from her great-grandmother’s maiden name.  These names will continue to carry a legacy that both of these great-grandparents left behind.  But even just spending a couple of hours with her after she was born, I have no doubt that sweet Waverly can handle the responsibility.

When Courtney and I met about me photographing the birth of her first baby, she and her husband, Manning, had just found out that morning that they were having a girl!  So we sat with warm cups of chai and hot chocolate in hand talking all things baby girl, how she and Manning met, and how this was the first grand baby (and great-grand baby!) on his side and would be the second one on her side by only a few months!  I love getting to hear about families and how everything and everyone fits together.  Especially when I get to meet them all and put all the names and faces together on delivery day.  Everyone was so excited for this sweet baby girl’s arrival and while Waverly was a few days past her due date, she came quickly and right when she was supposed to.

Courtney and Manning… thank you so much for trusting me to capture this day for you.  I loved getting to spend a few hours of waiting with you and your families and Waverly’s entry into the world brought me to tears!  Just like every baby’s delivery does :-)  Congrats again on your beautiful little redhead!!

Courtney’s mom is really creative and crafty so she was doing her thing while we all chatted and waited.

Three of the four grandparents were there most of the day.  Manning’s dad came not long after this.

Manning’s twin sister came by too.

About an hour before Waverly made her arrival, almost everyone was at the hospital to wait!

I love being a fly on the wall when it’s just mom and dad though… it’s so sweet to capture their last moments as a family of two.

And before we knew it, it was time to push…

And it seemed like Courtney only pushed twice before Waverly was here!

This is Waverly’s cousin that is only 3 months older than she is!
