Photographing Baby B was one of the best experiences I’ve had as a photographer. No, but really. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE weddings, couples, families and seniors. But being present when a baby enters into this world, it is humbling. There is no other feeling like it. It is actually really hard to put into words. The anticipation leading up to a baby joining a family, that I can explain. It’s like waiting for Christmas morning to come as a child! It’s exciting and hard to be patient.
But the moment I witnessed a perfect child enter into this world? It’s life changing and so difficult to explain. Everyone in the room, even the nurses and doctors who have seen it over and over and over again, seemed to be experiencing it for the first time. The room was bursting with smiles and happiness! Especially as mama got to hold Baby B for the first time. I could feel the love overflowing in the room. I could see just how that Baby B is already blessing her families’ life.
Hopefully the more I photograph these births, the better I will be at sharing my feelings as I photograph from my view as an observer. I know my words above don’t really do it justice as to how the experience actually felt, but it is a start. These pictures are the best representation to explain how it felt. THANK YOU to this adorable family for trusting me to be there and to photograph such a beautiful experience for you!
