If you have followed me on Facebook for the past year or so, I’ve professed my love for doing births. Truly, love and adore them! One consensus I have gotten from a lot of mom and dads is that after looking at their birth videos, they realize just how much they don’t remember from the day. With every birth being different, I love that I get to capture all those first memories, that you can never get back, for them to look back on at together.
Avry of Avry’s Birth Doula Services (who was my doula and is just amazing) called me and let me know that she had a couple that she had been working with and that their sweet little girl was being a bit stubborn and was breech! Long story short – Avry had to miss as she was loving on orphans in Haiti with her family and asked for me to be there to capture the birth for her clients!
Mama and I met a few days before to “get to know each other” before the big day! I like to do this with all my births so we can get a feel for each and go over any questions! The morning of Christmas Eve I arrived at the hospital and all was calm! The staff we worked with that morning were all great and super receptive of me being there and it was just great morning to welcome a new baby! And I’m pretty sure she made the best Christmas present ever! ;)
A few of my favorite shots from the day and then scroll down to view her birth video (make sure you click HD)! It is just a little tiny peak into her birthday! Enjoy!
