This sweet momma's husband called me to give me the heads up on their status: GOING TO THE BIRTHING CENTER. I was just getting ready to head off to bed, but instead I excitedly, headed out the door with my gear! When I arrived at GBO she had already given birth. In fact, she had only been at the birthing center about 20 to 30 minutes before her little girl made her grand entrance! That was close. I was able to get some of this little newborn's first moments recorded for a lifetime of remembrance. Most of my birth story sessions are processed in black and white because I feel that it gives more focus on the newborn, the colors aren't a distraction. Often times the lighting is low to help aid the birthing mother in a more calming atmosphere and lighting is not optimal, but black and whites work really well in those settings. If you are giving birth in the coming months, I would love to talk with you about birth story photography!
