Canton, GA Birth Photographer
with Midwife Margaret and Jenny
When I enter a home for birth photography, I sometimes have to tip toe around the house until I find where the laboring mother is. It’s common to be very dark and sometimes I just have to close my eyes and listen to hear where the moaning is coming from. With Jennifer’s birth, I quietly walked up the stairs and it was pitch black! Then, down the hallway was a little light shining underneath their bedroom door.
Rich and Jennifer took the Bradley method for natural childbirth class with their first baby. Although Aaron was their 6th baby, they still give credit to the Bradley method for Rich understanding what Jennifer was going through and how to care for her.
Jennifer was overdue with Aaron and I was SO excited when Rich called to tell me that her water had broken and contractions had begun!
Filled with SO MANY emotions during the birth of her baby.
THE moment when all your hard work paid off and your eyes finally meet your baby and he is finally being placed in your arms. Our eyes fill up with tears and our hearts overflow with joy!

Look at his sweet baby pout!

Another heart-going-to-burst moment… when your baby look up at you for the first time. Ahhhh!!
Home birth dads generally dress the baby.
Look how he posed his little baby feet!
