Going into labour on Valentine's Day morning, Kayla photographed the moment Nikki's second child, Graham came into the world.

"Pushing took about an hour, the little man was sideways so his Mama had to work a little harder," she says of the baby's delivery.

"The mum and baby had immediate skin-to-skin contact, and Graham's Father showered them both with love."

As for the incredible image of Graham's shaped head after birth, Kayla says this was due to his position during labour.

"The moulding on Graham’s head was extra dramatic because of his position," she explains.

"His head was tilted a bit to the side so the moulding isn’t centred. Soon after birth the moulding went down and by few days old he had a perfectly shaped head.

"It’s no cause for alarm or concern in this case and his birth was in no way traumatic because of it."
