For weeks I’ve been pondering what words I could possibly put to this post.
Jeff and Kristina had such a beautiful birth. They have such a beautiful connection. Kristina has birthed all 3 of her children naturally. As soon as she was explaining her birth method in our emails back and forth before her birth, I thought, sign me up! I love all my births, I really do! But being that I’ve given birth naturally myself, there’s just nothing quite like sharing in that experience. Each and every birth I attend makes me so proud to be a woman.
Right after she delivered her surprise baby boy, as they walked him over to get weighed, she looked at me and said, referring to her husband, Jeff, “this is my favorite ‘him’.” I looked over at Jeff hovered over their new baby with nothing but adoration. I totally got what she meant, I love my husband with our new babies too, and that got me thinking… I have a hard time putting to words how much I love being a birth photographer, and with her statement it all clicked. This is my favorite her. I love everything about a woman in labor and delivery. I love everything about that fresh, new mama love. I love each of my birth moms from the bottom of my heart… and Kristina is no exception. ;)
So without further adieu,
My favorite her,
