This incredible mama and I met for the first time when we were pregnant. I was pregnant with my second daughter, she was pregnant with her first child. We met at the sacred pregnancy class at Orchids Nest. When I got a call from her that she was pregnant with her second baby boy, I was so ecstatic! I was so happy and honored to be able to support her through my work during her vbac (vaginal birth after cesarean).
It was such a tremendous honor watching this blessed mama be under the care of her OBGYN Dr. Jane Rudolph (from Women's Health Partners in Boca Raton, FL). She was so patient and respectful of my birth mama client's birth space.
After having seen these images you may be thinking... this may be an entirely different perspective on what many families and parents consider a newborn photographer when they are searching for photographic pictures to capture the most amazing moments of their first, second, third baby entering this world.
But this is completely at the heart of my passion, true photojournalistic style documentary photography. You cannot pre-plan this family photography session the way you would a beach portrait session with a pregnancy photographer... Birth is spontaneous and unexpected!
I do believe you can call yourself a baby photographer when you are in the birth world :)
It is the most baby moments you will have as a newborn photographer - ever! The first seconds, minutes, hours a baby is in this world. True baby photography, or should I say newborn photography :)
