"Her son's head was a little bit crooked in the birth canal but her body and the baby knew what to do," Kayla Reeder, the couple's birth photographer, told GoodHousekeeping.com.

After an hour of labor, little Graham entered the world — with an oblong head.

It looks shocking (disfigured, even) in photos, but for babies of vaginal births, newborn head molding is more common than you'd think. At the time of birth, a baby's skull is soft and malleable, with gaps in between the plates of the bone (this is why babies have a soft spot at the top of their head!). Pressure on a newborn's head — like the pressure exerted during vaginal childbirth — in addition to the fluid and blood that collects in and around the brain during delivery occasionally results in a cone-like head shape. This is 100% normal and subsides in a couple of days. Babies born breech (feet first!) or via C-section usually don't experience this and are, therefore, born with a round head.

As Reeder's powerful photos demonstrate, Graham's family saw perfection in their newest addition. "The love, adoration, relief that he was finally here radiated through the family," Reeder told .
