A group of five siblings just witnessed their sixth sister being born.
The Teller sisters, Audrey, 12, Ella, 10, Lillian, 7, Zolie, 4 and Zuri, 2, surrounded their mom, Casey Teller, while she was in labor last month.
Four hours later, Tallulah Moon Teller was born.
The sweet moment was captured by Rebecca Burt Photography at the Teller home on Feb. 14.
"None of them think it's scary so everyone wanted to be there," Casey Teller of Suffolk, Virginia, told "Good Morning America." "They were going about their days and would pop in and say, 'Hey, was the baby born yet?' They all have different personalities. Audrey never left my side, she brought me water. She's in all the pictures and she cried when the baby was born."
Teller said all of her children have been present for one another's births and that she gives them the freedom to choose if they'd like to stay present for the event.

Both Tallulah and her sister Zuri had home births, Teller said.
The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) says that 35,000 births each year occur in the home, with one fourth of them being unplanned or unattended.
The ACOG also says women should be informed of several factors when considering a home birth including the appropriate selection of a candidate to facilitate the home birth such as a certified midwife or midwife whose education and licensure meet International Confederation of Midwives’ Global Standards for Midwifery Education, or physician practicing obstetrics within an integrated and regulated health system.
Other important factors include ready access to consultation and access to safe and timely transport to nearby hospitals.
Besides her five daughters, Teller said two certified midwives, her husband Adam and the birth photographer were present for Tallulah's birth.
Tallulah, now 1 month old, loves being held by her older sisters.
