Get comfortable … this is the birth story of one sweet little girl… and you’ll want to stay until the end for something special.
If you follow my work, you know that I photographed the birth of another friend’s baby a little over a year ago. There is certainly something special about being there to watch a new little life enter the world, and watching this mama do it as gracefully as she did was, well, simply amazing.
She spent much of her labor chatting with her hubby (and me) and walking around labor and delivery, and she even did her nails at one point (seriously!) It was so calm and peaceful.
At one point in the labor, the chatting stopped and mama became very quiet for a few hours. It was then that we could all sense something was happening. She cried tears of joy and relief when the doctor told her it was time to push after being stuck at 6.5 cm for what seemed like forever.
I think I could watch a thousand births and still be in awe every single time.
Welcome to the world baby K. Please see the video below for more images from this beautiful delivery.
Before pregnant mamas rush to the contact section of my blog, please note that I’m still not offering birth photography to clients at this time. I will continue to portfolio build when possible until I have more time to commit to fully offering these special, and time-consuming sessions to everyone.
