• Hello.

    Thanks for checking in!

    Read along as I highlight my personal life and the families I am so lucky to meet though Sherry Lane Photography! I am not a "writer" so please do not judge my misspelled words and grammatical errors :)

Audrey Marie – St. Louis Birth Photographer – Sherry Lane Photography

The birth of Audrey Marie is one I will never forget!  This was my first time photographing a natural delivery, with no medication.  Watching Kristen labor through every single contraction and then hold her daughter for the first time was something I just cannot explain.  I mean I “get it” because well, I have three kids!  But watching her go thorough this with no pain medication and fighting so hard to be strong and succeed in that wish.  It was no small feat.  She had her *amazing* husband by her side the entire time.   He comforted her, loved her and kept her fighting towards something they both wanted in their labor experience.

Kristen and Pete did not know the sex of their baby, which was so fun!  A good majority of their family waited it all out in the waiting room.  And getting to watch Pete announce their child was also tear worthy!

 I am just going to let the photos below tell the story.  I dont want my cheesy words to ruin it!  I also plan to make this into a video at some point.  I have some neat video clips to even add in!  I hope to update with that in a bit, but I just wanted to get this post up now!!

These are wonderful! Kristin and Pete, would you consider letting us use any of these for national Lamaze. Videos and on line education? The emotion, support and love is so evident in these photos. Thanks, Marta, for sharing with me! Jan Madsen
