The beauty of childbirth astounds me. That bump that you have carried around for 40 weeks you can now hold in your arms. You had ultrasounds so you sort of thought you kind of had an idea what your little one looked like. But then you actually get to hold this warm little bundle and you are overcome by the reality that you are really holding this tiny little gorgeous human. Love, love, love. In love. Immediately.
Well to be able to photograph a baby’s birth story for someone is an absolute honor.
This family is so special. We were smiling when they decided that they wanted Keith to photograph Miss M’s birth day. We had a set back, the obstetrician did not want the actual birth photographed – but was ok with Keith photographing everything else that was going on leading up to the birth and right after the birth. Even without the live birth, we ended up with a beautiful documentary of their baby’s birth story.
We have shared a handful of photos that were taken that early morning at Scottsdale Healthcare’s Family Birthing Suites; an overview of the birth story. While watching the slideshow that we presented to the proud parents, I couldn’t help but be filled with emotion, tears running down my face – I am just so amazed by the power of photography when capturing life’s moments.
Thank you D + M for allowing us to share your precious little baby’s birth story and allowing us to be part of such a special time in your lives.
