Well this was amazing and mind-blowing! This was my first time photographing, or even witnessing a birth! I was blown away. She was induced in the morning, so I went to visit and capture a few images first thing in the am.
It was so nice and peaceful in the room! Mom was relaxing and dad catching up on the days news. I photographed their 1st child’s ‘in mom’s belly’ session, and his newborn session just over 1.5 years ago. I loved seeing this family again! Here is a link
to the maternity photos from this pregnancy.
I loved capturing some of the details of the room, some things mom may not have noticed that day!
And to top if off, isn’t the light beautiful in this room? Only things a photographer would notice I guess!
I left and kept my phone turned up loud, I checked in around 2:30 and there was not much change. And then boom! At about 4pm dad called and said, “Hurry, she is at 9cm!” Luckily I was only about 3 minutes from the hospital, I showed up and baby came about 15 minutes later! Wow!
Enjoy the beauty…
It was all amazing, mom was a rockstar, and the baby was perfectly healthy.
I stayed for about another hour, mom got settled into breast feeding…
And then baby was off to get weighed and measured! Can you believe the eye contact here? He knows his daddy already.
‘Why are you covering my eyes???’ That was probably the only moment I heard him cry, he was one happy newborn!
‘Gotta check my head size now…’
‘Hi Mom and Dad!’
Well needless to say I am in love with photographing births, I feel so honored to have been allowed to photograph this one. Please contact me at email@example.com for more information on photographing your birth!
