Jessica is one of our own--an Olive Juice photographer and, for lack of a better word, our sister. We photographed her wedding, made her the godmother to our only son and rushed her to the hospital when her first daughter, Ava, was born prematurely. Recently, Scott had the honor of photographing the labor and delivery of her second baby girl, Ella. It was the natural, full-term birth experience Jessica wanted and something Scott will never forget.
Jess labored at home for 18 hours. Her doula suggested acupuncture to speed up the process and it worked! Jess' water broke and Ella was born, without an epidural, 2 hours later.
