I had the amazing honor of being allowed into the birthing room to photograph the beautiful experience of Leah’s birth. I photographed this family about a year and a half ago and we’ve crossed paths many times since then. At first, I was going to just take photos of her sweet girls meeting their new sister for the first time, but we decided at the last minute to just go for the gusto. It was such an amazing experience for so many reasons, most reasons are obvious, but the thing that struck me the most was how unique to be such an outsider being let into this intimate experience. The photographs portray more emotions than I have ever captured in one session; from the parents, the siblings, the baby, their wonderful nurses and wonderful doctor. I will forever treasure the experience of being a part of Leah’s birth and will always love this family and little Leah.
I’ve made a slideshow because it was so very hard to narrow down the photos I wanted to share. For those of you who don’t want to bother with a slideshow, I’ve included about half of the photos from the slideshow below. The family has kindly given me permission to share the photos I have up.
