I'm always honored to be invited to be a part of such an amazing "first" in the lives of a family. Amazing couple. Awesome family surrounding them. Beautiful baby boy. I love birth photography! ♥
Sighhh... another sweet birth. I enjoyed getting to know this couple during this process and loved watching them become parents!
I was so excited to be there to welcome my sweet friend's baby girl into this world!! I can't say enough about how much I love photographing births - the entire experience is amazing and priceless.
I love birth photography... so much that I will stay up all night waiting for a baby! ;) I rushed to the hospital this night around midnight after the Dad called when they reached the hospital and Mom was already at 8-9 cm! I don't think I ever moved so fast to get to the hospital! (No speeding was involved. ;) ) I was expecting a baby to be born as soon as I got there but this just goes to prove how unpredictable births can be. We all stayed up waiting in anticipation and finally took a power nap around 3 AM. A baby boy entered the world at 5:45 AM. This birth was especially fun because no one knew the gender until the birth! It was exciting and such an honor to be a part of another birth. The great part about birth photography besides witnessing a miracle is getting to know sweet and amazing couples like this one and watching them become parents. ♥ Here's some favorites from the labor and birth and check out the birth story video at the end too.
The most amazing thing I have ever photographed is the miracular moments of the birth of a new baby - the bittersweet pain of labor, the anticipation, the first time you lay eyes on your new baby, the first time you breathe him/her in - that's what I capture. It's a truly beautiful experience! This was my first birth and I LOOVED it! I'm so passionate about any photography related to babies but this tops the charts because it's so so priceless!! If you're expecting soon, consider birth photography - you won't regret it! Here's some of my favorites but be sure to check out the video at the end for the entire birth story!
