Hello World! | Birth Photography

Yesterday I got a text message that said, "I'm 6cm dialated and checked-in at the hospital". I've never moved so fast in my life. I ran out the door hoping I didn't forget something vital. When I got there, I felt as if I just walked in on the most intimate moment ever. The soon to be daddy was bent over the soon to be mommy, rubbing her back and giving her kisses. He played with her hair. He told her he loved her. Nurses and midwives came and went and all were amazing, comforting. Then the birth of new life! It was one of the most moving moments in my entire life, getting to see the love. The joy. The work. And that first cry. It was like music. So here they are.  

Thank you oh so, so, so very much for allowing me to come to your son's birth. It was an experience I will treasure always. I hope you love your photographs (memories) as much as I do.
