They say parents can have a birth plan, but in the end the baby is boss.
And that's exactly how it went down for a Florida mom who gave birth not in the hospital - but in the hospital parking lot.
And while it's an experience she will surely never forget, she now also has the pictures to go with it.
That's because Paula D'Amore, who describes herself as "Type A," tells ABC News that she hired a professional photographer to capture the birth of her third child.
She says she never had any pictures from the births of her first two children and she didn't want to miss the moment her daughter arrived.
Well, she says she got her $1,000 worth!
She describes the whole birth as so fast and stressed it was like an out of body experience, with little Daniella having some story to tell - along with some amazing photos.
