I have started a small collection of photos from clients births (of course with their permission). While I don’t claim to be a photographer, it is one of my joys after a woman delivers her baby to capture real life moments.
I usually stay with mom, baby and dad respectively for about two hours after birth. Sometimes more, sometimes less, depending on the delivery or whether the mother’s needs entail.
Those first cries, first feedings, first snuggles with Mama, first moments with Daddy are irreplaceable. I am truly humbled to witness it all…
This photo came up on Facebook the other day and I was so blessed to see it again.
I started this journey only last year and this photo was from my very first birth.
What a moment to witness. I know I will be a grandma someday. Possibly, even within 6-10 years. *gasp*
Tears of joy I know I will cry too!
