Birth Photography :: Central Alberta
When a child is born it changes everyone around it. From adult to parent, parent to grandparent, roles change as our hearts grow larger to hold even more love in them.
Birth photography is some of the most meaningful, emotion filled, connection driven images I have ever taken, and there is no question that I love being given the opportunity to create these memories for families. They are not all to be shared, and some may choose to share none and just covet those moments themselves. The firsts, that we forget with all the hormones, and activity going on…I don’t remember if my babies were crying or content for the first probably 16 hours after delivery, but I wish I had a nice photo of myself, gleaming in joy, holding them close. Soothing and calming them as those mama instincts take over, or the moment a tear fell from dads eye as he saw his child for the first time, or held them. These are moments you might not even notice happening, but life is full of those. They are the times that count the most.
These are meant to tell the story of birth without words, to remind of the events leading up to, and after as a family grows by one more.
Rian is the third child, and the third child of this sweet family that I had the honor of attending the birth of! It took him no time to arrive giving me only 20 minutes from arrival of myself to arrival of baby! Is Fast and Furious appropriate? I believe so! He was the stubborn baby, causing false labors, putting his mom under extra stress being breach for quite awhile till deciding to flip permanently. So it was not surprise to anyone that he came even faster than his two sisters when he felt the time was right.
