I plan to try to update one family photo session every couple of days, until I am caught up with 2017. And next up is Kara and Dayne's birth photos. Kara contacted me very early on in her pregnancy to schedule birth photos. I was a bit hesitant, since this was not my typical photo session. But I was so excited to give it a go. And I loved it so much! There are not too many things in this world that can possibly compare to the birth of a brand new life. The intensity, the emotions and the amazing love involved. And it was truly an honor to be asked to share in this event with Kara and Dayne.
Kara was such a rockstar momma all day long. She had texted me mid morning one rainy Sunday to say that she thought today was the day. We had been keeping in close contact over the past couple of weeks, but she was sure this was it.....the baby was to be born today! In her early text she had said for me to wait and come when she was having closer contractions. I sort of didn't listen and wrapped up what I was working on, and took off for the hospital. And good thing, she had the baby a short couple of hours later. Her labor was so quick, in fact, that the doctor arrived just minutes after the baby was delivered. She progressed so quickly, and baby Grantham was here.
Spending this time with Kara and Dayne was such a wonderful experience for me. When they came to view their photos Kara asked if I plan to offer these sessions on a regular basis. And one day I would love to do just that. But for now I'll plan on offering the fresh 48 photos sessions. I'll come on in to see that brand new baby in the hospital newness, so fresh and perfect. And we'll see what the future has to offer for my birth photography.
