There is nothing like seeing a baby being born. Now, if you know me...you know I have no children and I have never been in the room during a birth. However, I have a bunch of friends with children and I have a motherly way about me and know what to do with children and how to take care of them. So with that being said, I was called to come photograph this session because I knew the mother of mother of the patient! I walked in and she was ready to start pushing...PERFECT TIMING! I told you I know what I am doing! So in between taking pictures I coached and counted and held legs and fed ice chips! It was sooooo exciting! I felt like Miranda Bailey (Grey's Anatomy). When it came time for the baby to come out and the doctor came in and things got intense I was right there with my camera and I didn't miss a moment! I tell you it was the most amazing thing EVER! I can't wait until the next birth session! It was just amazing to see a life come into the world and to be apart of it with the family.
