Meet adorable Kobe at 8 days new. Kobe is special ot me because I photographed his birth!!! Thank you to his wonderful family for sharing this amazing moment in time with me.
Hi!As most of you know I entered the wonderful world of Birth Photography last year. As a photographer I feel so blessed to be able to share this extraordinary experience with the parents that have asked me to document their baby's arrival. Here I have Anastasia's birth - she has written her own story for me to blog (thanks so much beautiful lady!!) I have been quite conservative with my choice of photos for this blog out of respect for Ana's privacy but I'm sure you can still follow :) **** On Monday afternoon I started getting very mild contractions roughly 20 mins apart, these continued through the afternoon and the night. Between getting up to use the bathroom every 30-60mins and contracting every 20mins I barely slept. On Tuesday morning my midwife Tracy came to my house at 8:30 for my 40 week appointment. I was contracting every 20mins throughout most of the appt, by the end contractions were 15 mins apart and within an hour of my MW leaving they were between 10-12 mins. I decided walking would allow things to progress but it was raining so I went and did the food shopping - it helped and contractions went to 8 mins apart. My birth partner, Alicia, decided to come and spend the afternoon and evening with me incase something happened she didn't want to get stuck in peak hour traffic. Contractions were getting more painful but had gone ...
Words can't describe how gorgeous 9 day old Addison-Rose is. So here's my story in images:
