Wow {Flagstaff Birth Photography}

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. Flagstaff Birth Photographer WEB-4It 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.Flagstaff Birth Photographer WEB-5I loved capturing some of the details of the room, some things mom may not have noticed that day!Flagstaff Birth Photographer WEB-7And to top if off, isn’t the light beautiful in this room? Only things a photographer would notice I guess!Flagstaff Birth Photographer WEB-9I 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!
