This post is a bit late and long but I am super excited to share it. I was asked to photograph a birth by some doula friends of mine. With no birth photography experience I was excited to do it but with new experiences and ones I can’t recreate I was just as nervous. I have chosen to share this experience in black and white because for me these images give more emotion than the color.
This was a home birth in water so as a woman who has given birth to 3 children in a hospital, in a bed I was curious as to how this whole birthing process would work. Well it was an awesome experience that I am thankful I was asked to be a part of. With a doula and two midwives this laboring mom had lots of support. It was a very calming and natural process that of course netted one of the best gifts; a beautiful healthy baby girl!!
You may notice that the three other children were a part of welcoming their new sister into the world so this was a family moment shared in a peaceful manner. All new to me it was an amazing time where what happens naturally actually occurred naturally!!
