When Alicia Atkins of Glendale, Ariz., was undergoing a routine C-section in October, something extraordinary happened.
Atkins's baby girl – still inside her mother’s womb – reached up and grabbed her OBGYN’s finger. Realizing how special the moment was, Dr. Allen Sawyer, who has also delivered Atkins’s other two children, called to her husband Randy to grab the camera.
In a split second, he was able to capture the special moment just in time.
“I think it’s an amazing, beautiful photo; it’s just a precious photo at this point,” Atkins told FoxNews.com
Atkins is actually a professional photographer herself and owns her own business called A Classic Pin-Up Photography. She shared the remarkable photo on her business’ Facebook page the day after Christmas, and it has since gone viral, having been shared more than 2,000 times. Atkins said she did not expect how popular the photo would become.
