I have been photographing births for almost 3 years now and they are my absolute hands down favorite type of shoot. A birth is what is it, it can not dress it up or pretend it is something its not and yet it is the most beautiful act a woman could be a part of, not to mention the most difficult and rewarding.
This morning I witnessed the birth of Victoria “Tori” here in the Forth Worth area, which marked my first birth to photograph since our move and my first Dallas/ Fort Worth birth to ever attend. Little Tori was a whopping 9 pounds 10 ounces and her mommy gave birth to her without any drugs or pain meds! Elizabeth and Kirk had taken a Bradley class here in Dallas and were well prepared and kept active, positive and string throughout this awesome labor and birth. Thanks for letting me be a part of your “Birth” day! I was honored! Can’t wait to see you guys in a few days for newborns!
Oh and a special thank you to Brian and anyone in his office at FC who hung out with the kids while I was shooting this birth! You are awesome honey!
Here are a few highlights from today, you can pick up all your image this week when we shoot Tori’s newborns!
