Giving birth and being born brings us into the essence of creation, where the human spirit is courageous and bold and the body, a miracle of wisdom. ~Harriette Hartigan
I love my job as a photographer. In fact, I love it so much, that I recently resigned from the old day job to have more time to focus on photography. Every session I do is fun and unique and rewarding. But, believe me when I tell you, there is nothing like photographing a birth. Being present to capture, for all posterity, the strength and beauty of a laboring mother, the support and love of a father-to-be, and the precious, fleeting first moments of a brand new life in their very first moments here on earth…. Well, if it sounds incredible and miraculous and awe-inspiring that’s because it is all that, and more.
My eternal gratitude and love to the S-G Family (who you’ve met here & here) for choosing me to photograph the birth of your second beautiful son. Griffin Elliott (who you’ve met here, here, here & here) was born perfect, beautiful, and healthy via a successful VBAC (Yea, VBAC! Go Mama!!) at 42 weeks at the Women’s Hospital of Greensboro on June 4, 2012 at 10:28pm. I arrived on the scene about 2:00pm and began to chronicle the day through my lens, finally leaving around midnight, when sweet baby Griffin was just over an hour old. Another heartfelt thanks to the S-G Family for allowing me to share your photographic birth story here. Love and hugs to all four of you. : )
