Literally, it was only a moment before this little guy entered the world from the time I walked in the door. First-time moms often are not sure of what the “feeling” of labor will be for them. This mom showed the midwife, her family and myself just how a Super Mom would handle giving birth. From the phone call around 8 pm saying she was pretty sure “this was it” to a text message at 10:45 — when they met up with the midwife at the South Austin Area Birthing Center — saying she was at 7 cm!!! After a mad rush for me to get to the birthing center, it was only 20 minutes before she held her son in her arms.
To Mom & Dad, thank you for allowing me to share in your special moment ~
Birth photography is a joy like no other.
To witness the arrival of a child and see the look on a families face as they welcome this little one for the first time is an incredible honor. Thank you once again for allowing me to share in this special moment.
