When I met with Mom-to-be to talk about her maternity session she asked if I had ever photographed a birth. It is something I had always wanted to do but never had the opportunity. A couple months later I was watching this amazing woman give birth to the most precious baby boy. The experience was very different. There is a raw beauty to these photos I can’t describe but they really matched the day.

The entire day was perfect. From the mama-to-be remaining call through out to the doctor who described it as the text book delivery. The wonderful nurses to the gentle love her husband showered her with, to watching Mom hold her son for the first time, and to the amazing Turkish dinner we had while the family came and celebrated the new addition, it was a truly humbling experience in how beautiful life is getting to watch the start of this new family.
