Cristin’s Birth Story

Ok, so those of you that know me, know that I have a huge passion for birth & everything that goes along with it.  The pregnancy, the miracle of the birth process, the strength that mama’s have & that amazing tiny newborn person!  At some point in my photography career, when my kids are a little older, I think it would be ah.maz.ing. to be able to photograph births full time.  I am so in love with the idea of giving parents the moments of their child’s birth that they may not remember even happening.  I have two babes myself, and I completely regret not having any pictures of the process.  I have pictures of both of them immediately after the birth, but nothing that lead up to that momentous event.

In August, I was so blessed and honored to be a part of my friend, Cristin’s, birth story.  She was a first-time mama & had so graciously let me practice my photography skills on her pregnant belly in the weeks before the birth.  Finally, the big day came!  I am a work at home mama with an in-home daycare, so I couldn’t just drop everything and leave when I got the message she was at the hospital.  I was so worried that I was going to miss it!  Luckily, time and baby Seamus were on my side:-)  I got to the hospital around 4 p.m. and Cristin was resting.  A few hours later, a handsome baby Seamus made his appearance!  It was such an amazing experience to be a part of & I’ll never forget it!
