One of the most meaningful and beautiful things I’ve done in my career has been photographing the birth of a child. Â It is something that has always fascinated and intrigued me. Â Being witness to a couple become 3 or a family become 4 has to be one of the most sacred things I’ve ever experienced. Â It was such an honor to watch Camden join the world and I hope I can express some of those feelings through these photographs. Â I thought I wasn’t going to be allowed in the OR until about 10 minutes before surgery and when I found out I was practically jumping with joy. Â The nurses and doctors were so incredible and supportive and seemed really focused on making it a good experience for everyone involved. Â I’m so grateful Camden’s parents’ trusted me with capturing this moment. Â Thank you!
Miles is the proud big brother and when I first arrived his grandmas took him down to the gift shop to pick out a present for baby sister. Â Miles was one of the first newborns I photographed in Houston three years ago!
On our way back upstairs is when I found out I was allowed in the OR. Â I threw on my flattering paper scrubs and got ready.
They let me have free reign of the room and it was absolutely fascinating.
Then she was here.
When I was editing and got to this next image? Â Instant tears. Â You are both so beautiful.
One last kiss from mama before they finished up.
Time for big brother to meet baby sister! Â He was so sweet to her.
Beautiful, isn’t she?
Congratulations!! Â I’m so happy for your family. Â Thanks again for letting me be there.
