I had the most wonderful opportunity on November 16th! I was able to photograph the birth of my first nephew Thaddaeus Finn Smith!
Since Beth and I have started Strawberry Patch we have both been trying out every type of sessions from Engagements and Weddings to Newborn sessions to try and figure out exactly what our favorites are and where we want to really focus in. I never expected to be a birth photographer but, after this AMAZING experience I definitely want to be a Birth Photographer! (call or email me!)
This one possible one of the most dear experiences in my life. Yes, of course, it was extra special to me because it was my family…and yes, I cried—it was amazing, can you blame me!? But, I don’t think it was just the fact that this was my big sister giving birth I think there is so much more to it. This was also an amazing opportunity to see how much strength, concentration and endurance a mother has, to see how amazing a Woman’s body is and how God created us to endure this pain. Finally, to witness and capture this culmination of LOVE in this family. It really is amazing. I am so blessed to have been asked to be there for this very special and intimate time in their lives. Thank You.
I hope you enjoy these photos. 🙂
