When Nancy (baby Peter's sweet mama) asked me to photograph Peter's birth, my first reaction was along the lines of "hmm, are you sure?" After all, this wouldn't just be my first time photographing a birth, but also my first time witnessing the birth process. Now on the other side, I'm so glad Nancy entrusted me with documenting her labor and birth of her third child. Observing her calm nature whenever I'm around her encourages me away from worry and anxiety. I was inspired to see such a strong, compassionate woman amidst her literal labor of love. Nancy, thank you.
These photos are more documentary-like in style. I wanted to be a fly on the wall and capture things as they happened naturally. I hope these images do this family's story justice. I can't wait to be back in the delivery room to photograph another precious baby entering the world.
Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb a reward.
