Today was one of those moments in life where it really hits you that you are exactly where you need to be! Welcome to my passion – BIRTH
A few weeks ago I had a discussion with some friends who were expecting their first child. I asked them if they had ever considered having their birth photographed – they reacted the EXACT way I expected – with lots of frowns, slight disapproval and the ultimate question…. Why on earth would they get such a thing done?!?!
Only a few months prior, I had my birth photographed by a close (and very talented) friend of mine, so knew I just HAD to change their minds. It is one of the most epically, beautiful moments in an expectant parent’s life and these memories are ones that have to be captured!
Most people vision images taken down the “business” end, lots of “gore” and things they can’t imagine caring to look over at a later date. Let me set the record straight….
BIRTH PHOTOGRAPHY IS NOT LIKE THAT AT ALL!!!!
Its about capturing moment – moments between two eager soon-to-be parents – overwhelmed with love, fear and longing. Longing for that moment when they get to meet this precious little being that they have created.
Words cannot express the love that filled my heart when they changed their minds!
Thank you for sharing this with me Paul and Stacey. Allowing me to be present and watch your little man come earthside is an experience I will never forget.
And we welcome Zeke….
