As Gerald and Jocelyne anticipated the arrival of Satiah,two (2) exciting decisions were made:
1) Undergo a water birth delivery at the Hollywood Birth Center in Hollywood,FL
2) Immortalize the pregnancy with a state of the art maternity photoshoot session, directed and managed by Photographer AJ Shorter at the Fairchild Botanical Gardens in Coral Gables, Florida.
On April 17, 2016, the below images were captured. Satiah was born five days following the shoot on April 22, 2016 at 11:43pm!
The Nguema family is forever grateful to AJ Shorter for his amazing personality, skill and creative mind! He contributed in making this moment one of the best experiences outside of the brith of Satiah!
