“I was shocked for a few seconds, and then it didn’t matter if it was a girl or a boy"

Jessica Jackson of Itty Bitty Photography was hired by Koto Nakamura and Sina Niankansafy to capture the beauty of Koto’s childbirth on camera. While Jessica and the expecting couple anticipated a whirlwind of emotions to surface on the day of delivery, they definitely didn’t foresee any surprises.

Much to their surprise, that’s exactly what happened.

Nakamura and her husband were told after numerous ultrasounds that they would be having a baby girl. For months, the couple prepared for a daughter and even went as far as to name her. The couple decided when their daughter was born, she’d be wrapped in a pink blanket, and her name tag would read: Hinata.

Well, things don’t always turn out the way you expect.

Needless to say when Nakamura learned that she had just given birth to a beautiful baby boy, she was genuinely surprised:
