I had an extremely great time sharing in this family's journey to parenthood. When they hired me to be there doula, maternity photographer and newborn photographer, I had no idea they didn't initially want birth photography. I just assumed I was doing birth photos for them and I guess somehow along the way I convinced them that they did want birth photos. Now they are so glad they did it.
Their birth journey was incredible. After a very long labour throughout the night, they ended up wheeling mom down to the OR to help the baby out with forceps. Well that must have been the final straw to convince mom and baby that it was time for him to be born and she pushed him out without the forceps in the OR. It was a triumphant moment where everyone in the OR was thrilled for the new family. Thank you for letting me support you on your journey and allowing me to capture it so Koden can also experience it one day.
I loved doing some special photos a couple weeks later of this little guy in his nursery. His dad made his crib for him by hand. We also put him on an old vintage scale that mom and dad picked up from a local antique shop.
