When these clients hired me they didn't know that dad wouldn't be present. We discussed what they wanted me to capture and it involved photos of both mom and dad having a natural birth. Well life is unpredictable and this birth looked a little different than they thought 5 months prior. Dad was away for work and mom trouped on. Then, when complications started popping up one after the other, they whisked her into the OR where I was also able to go and capture the birth of her son so the dad could still experience it through photos and video.
Here was my favourite photo from the day. A photo of their son BEFORE he took his first breath. This is birth by Caesarean section. It is incredible!
Please watch Hunter's birth story. It's my first time capturing a birth with 50% video and I loved it!!! The video brings the stills to life. Watch and see.
