Have I mentioned how blessed I feel to be allowed into such special moments to photograph? Every time I photograph a birth it’s like I am experiencing the miracle it is for the first time. It is so special to watch the mom work so hard to bring her little one into this world and to watch the amazing support of the father. The two together are a force. The look on the dad’s face when he can see the baby coming, the look on the mom’s face when her baby is placed on her chest for the first time, the amazing support from the nurses and doctor – it’s such a team effort and an amazing one at that.
I am so excited about the births I have booked for this year. Witnessing the miracle of life brings me to tears and awe every time. If you would like to learn more about Portraits By Lucinda and birth photography click here.
As I showed up at Shawnee Mission Medical’s birth center to capture Benjamin’s birth his dad was in a chair reading away at a baby names book. How funny is it that they were still trying to find that perfect name! His mom was so strong and worked so hard to bring this little guy into this world. He was a big boy weighing in at 9 lbs. 3 oz.! Thanks so much to Benjamin’s parents for choosing me to capture this special day!
For all of my birth stories I put together a fusion birth video. This includes both stills and video, the combination of the two really tells the story. The video capturing your babies first cry, first bath, the sound of your babies heart not the monitor. All such special memories to have. If you would like to watch the fusion video click here.
