As I was getting ready to edit Camden’s newborn photos, it dawned on me that while I shared his birth story video, I never actually created a blog post! So I decided I better share his birth photography session, because his session is one of the next that will be posted on here!
(Update: This sweet boy has finished his Baby’s First Year Plan! I came back over here to link to his 6 month session, his 12 month session, and I’m also noticing I didn’t link his mama’s maternity session at Lafayette Square Park before!)
I got the text from J early in the morning that S was in active labor. I raced to Belleville Memorial Hospital where she was laboring, and was so glad that I still had time to capture some detail photographs before things became intense. S was so strong, and the moment when Camden was placed on her chest for the firs time was amazing. There was so much emotion in the room – the kind of emotion that can only come when new life enters the world. Camden was so happy to snuggle up against his mommy – it was precious.
I have to say, I was so impressed with the nurses at this hospital. They were simply incredible, and I hope I get another opportunity to photograph a birth while there. S also had the most awesome doctor. Seriously. She was so friendly and everyone there was so friendly and helpful.
It’s so hard to choose which photos to share from a birth session. I always end up with over 100 that I give to my clients but, of course, I can’t share that many in a single blog post! Here are some that I really loved.
Not many people can be working so hard at labor, but still look this beautiful! Seriously!
Oh S, you worked so hard for this moment!
This moment! Best feeling ever! One of my favorite things about birth photography is allowing my clients to see the love that they already feel.
Camden’s first cell phone photo! The first of many, no doubt!
Camden was very interested in his surroundings!
Something about a baby’s new wrinkly fingers that gets me every time!!
