Babies are the beginning of wonder, hope, and dreams. The moment you meet, you will ask “why does time go by so fast”? I can’t express the emotion that comes with photographing such an intimate life event and telling the birth story of this beautiful baby girl. At the moment Lydia was born, she was placed into her mother’s waiting arms. She will forever see the love and joy in her family as they anxiously awaited her arrival and then meet her for the first time. I feel blessed to have been a part of this extraordinary day and for the parents inviting me to photograph the birth of their daughter. Enjoy Lydia’s birth story slideshow below.
