I had a great time photographing this birth at BC Womens Hospital in Vancouver. They have such a great birthing facility! The nurses were amazing, the doctors were amazing, the rooms were amazing... this mama had lots of support and she laboured amazing. She pushed for 3.5 hours (in many hospitals this would have been an automatic c-section) but she was determined to keep pushing and the hospital staff were so supportive, finally helping the baby out with a vacuum.
I have never met a mama who rose so quickly after birth. She came over to the examining table to be right by her baby's side as she was measured & weighed. It was beautiful to watch a mother so attentive. Congratulations to this beautiful new family of 3!

How beautiful these photos are! Makes me wish I could have another baby just so you could photograph the birth! But I will be 65 in May so that can't happen. maybe I can talk one of my grandchildren into making a baby soon!

These pictures are of my beautiful niece, her wonderful husband and their precious new baby girl. The photos, like the people in them, are just gorgeous! So glad to see that you included my big sis, brother-in-law and other beautiful niece in the photo spread as well. Every-one has been looking so forward to this little girl's arrival and it's so special to be able to witness the first moments of her life this way!
