Covey Birth Story - John Davis Covey - 11.12.2007 American Fork Hospital























































On Monday I was scheduled to speak up at Salt Lake Community College in the Photography Department. Needless to say, I had to reschedule.

My sister-in-law had her first child on Monday and she asked me to come photograph the birth.

3 Epidurals. The first one did not take. The second one hit a nerve and the third time was a charm.

The babies heart rate also kept dropping but everything went off without a hitch. John Davis Covey was born sometime around 4pm. 8lbs 1oz. With family and loved ones all around.

Congratulations Christine and John. You done good.

Jon,
I have just seen the pictures. I can not express in words what these pictures mean to me. Thank you for being there and for so tastefully capturing such a sacred and beautiful time in Johnny and Christine's life. You have blessed our family in so many ways we are glad to be family with you and Callie.
Love,
Kathleen

Your movement through the emotions and events of the day, was so incredibly powerful. It may seem trivial to post pictures of a clock or a cell phone call, but trust me - those are significant events that the mom will later forget! This work is beautiful and actually made me teary! Well done!!!

Christine and Johnny, these pictures are priceless! What an incredible experience. Little Johnny will always know how many awaited his birth by the amount of people in that room. I don't think he'll be lacking in love. We couldn't be happier for you. Love, Tam and Joe
