Hello Jackson

This mama didn't have the easiest pregnancy so when birthing day came a little earlier than expected (still full term) all was wonderful in the world. When I arrived at NYGH I knew this was going to be a beautiful birth because I entered a room full of so much support and love. This couple also had two beautiful very eager little girls waiting to meet their new sibling! Were they going to have a brother or a sister? It was a surprise for everyone. Ya know, I have noticed more and more people have been waiting until birth to find out baby's gender, and I must admit, the pictures of the moment when baby's birth gender is revealed is always so epic!! Just take a look at the third picture down! See?! So good! Please scroll down to see some of my favourite images from this birth, and be sure to watch the incredible birth video at the bottom! Bring some tissues! 

Now turn up the volume and press play! 

Thank you for watching!

Hello Sweet Touba

More people are starting to understand birth photography because when I tell people about how I document births, I'm starting to hear them respond with "Hey, my friend had her birth photographed", or something along those lines! But one thing people often still look confused by is documenting a cesarean birth.

Well, last week baby Touba made her debut via elected cesarean section making this the first c-section I have documented!! What a beautiful birth surrounded by so much love. This little lady is so special. She is the first grandchild on both sides of the family. This family is so welcoming that I felt like part of the family! They shared some incredible life stories with me during the moments waiting in the waiting room. This family is clearly made of very strong women! Just watch as this family celebrates and bonds over the arrival of Touba. These grandmothers have such a beautiful relationship and watching them greet their granddaughter with such gratefulness is really emotional. I love how involved their family over seas could be too thanks to FaceTime!! I love the role technology plays! Seriously, just watch!! Be sure to have some tissue by your side. 

Every birth story is unique, but in some ways, they are all the same. The love that radiates off the family welcoming a new sweet baby in to their lives is something that you can feel by just looking at the pictures. It's all worth documenting because the birth of your baby, is and always will be, the most insane, beautiful, best, incredible day of your life. 

If you are considering having your birth documented, please check out my gallery and contact me if you would like package options and prices along with my FAQ's about birth photography.
