I don’t do many birth stories mostly because they require a lot of waiting time which is hard when you have 3 little children at home. I think birth stories are amazing, it a moment in life where there are so many emotions and to capture that on camera to freeze that moment in time and treasure forever is just fantastic. I wish I could do more but its just too hard right now. However, I got the chance this last month. This was not my usual, this was a home birth, a totally new experience for me. Baby was in no hurry to come but mom was a trooper. When the early morning call came for me to come It was only about an hour more till the baby finally arrived. Mom was fantastic, she made it look so much easier than I know it is, I almost thought hey I could do that…. but I think I’ll stick to my epidurals!
I was also great to stay till the sun came up and capture the family together before I left them to enjoy the new addition!
