Being present for the birth of this beautiful baby girl is something that I have been anticipating for the past several years. I have kept in touch with her mom as she has made several attempts at becoming pregnant. I have seen her try every avenue and my heart has ached for her as I have seen her experience the highs and lows, the excitements and disappointments and finally the reward of her adorable pink bundle. This mom has had the BEST attitude throughout and has taught me many great lessons.
Being there to capture the moments before and after the birth of a baby are always so emotional. I love to see these moms fights with every fibre of their being to deliver life. I love to see the nurses, doctors and midwives all do their jobs with efficiency and care. And I love to hear that first little cry. I am a birth junkie. I am addicted to these moments and am truly grateful that I can be there to give these moms a visual story of one of the best days of their lives.
Although birth photography is not too common, it is certainly picking up in popularity. I think it is a true treasure for the mom and the baby to have these pictures forever. I am so glad that this baby girl will always have a record of just how much her mom wanted her. Not just these pictures, but the journey that has led them to this point over the last four years.
Way to go Mary Ann!! You are my hero.
