Birth never gets old… truly.
There is never a time where I get tired of attending a birth and seeing new life join us earth side!
It is a privilege and a joy that one can’t fully describe in words.
I got my usual 2am call that mama’s water had broken and they were heading to the hospital. Normally I wouldn’t leave right away, but I think most birth photographers agree that we seem to have some sort of sense of when we should go and when we should stay.
When I arrived I was bummed to hear she was only 3cm and not progressing well. I thought my instincts had failed me.
But in a few hours she shot from 3cm to 10cm and it was time to roll by 8am.
Had I waited for her to be farther along, before I left my house, I would have missed the big moment! So my instincts were dead on 🙂
If you want to see how gorgeous this birth was please watch the video below!
I love the deep film like qualities this birth had due to the tricky lighting we were dealing with.
Welcome to the world Bentley!
