N&G//A Birth Story

It is always such an honor to be invited into the most vulnerable and wonderful times of someone's life. Birth is definitely no exception. I had only photographed one other birth before this particular one, and it was that of my sister. It was such an emotional experience, and I was surprised to find that it is that way regardless. These perfect little ones were birthed via c-section, so taking photos meant wearing full hospital clothes and being designated to certain places at certain times. As I tiptoed and very carefully maneuvered around equipment for each new moment, I found myself in awe of the situation, sometimes fogging up my viewfinder in the process. I hope I never take these moments for granted.
