So I probably over staid my welcome at this super cute family’s home. They are just so sweet, warm, and such great company. I really enjoyed watching their kiddos play and looking at the nifty decor in their home. I have been a little family sick, so it was nice getting to here lots of giggles and the patters of little feet. Baby George is ridiculously adorable and has completely amazing hair. He looks a lot like dad right now and it would be feasible to shape his hair into Dad’s same doo. His older sister and brother are so in awe of him, and it was so cute to watch them cuddle him. It was lots of fun getting to shoot these moments with this family. Welcome home George, you made your way to an awesome family. Enjoy ;]
Oh BOY, this is one of my favorite births. This Momma labored so beautifully, and had such amazing support from her friends. It was a very warm and sacred space and the love could be felt. One of my other favorite things is the transition Dad makes in the images. You could tell he was concerned for his wife and in deep thought. He also knew she needed the support her friends had to offer and perfectly balanced his role. Boy oh boy though, when Ayden made his entrance you can see Dad glowing with pride.
This was also a very special birth because Northside hospital (which is probably the hardest in terms of birth photography rules and cooperation in the metro Atlanta area) allowed me into the OR. I took this as a huge honor and so glad this Momma got her wishes. She did a great job advocating for herself and I think it really paid off. I truly believe Dad’s should be allowed to focus 150% on Mom rather then worrying about taking photos. They deserve to live in these special moments too. I hope this could be the turn of a new leaf with this hospital when it comes to working with birth photographers. When dealing with a Cesarean section my job as their photographer becomes increasingly more important. Being mom’s eyes so she doesn’t have to miss a moment is a huge deal.
These are just some of the photos, posting all of them would overwhelm everyone. Also I will be sharing their video once its finished :] Since I wasn’t allowed to video in the OR I got lots of photos that I could do a whole post of just photos for them. Enjoy!
