Welcome Penny – Austin, TX Birth Photographer

Oh what a treat this birth was. Lindsay contacted me just a few weeks before her “due date” to capture her birth. I was already booked but offered to be on standby for her, meaning if I am able to come, am not at someone else’s birth, and am not called away to anyone else’s birth during hers, I would photograph it for her just like any other client. She decided she wanted to go for it and well, things could not have worked out more perfectly. Because she booked me so quickly, I didn’t have time to actually meet her beforehand, but we did arrange to speak on the phone about her vision for her birth, the important moments she wanted photographed, as well as any concerns and questions she had. 2 hours after this phone call, I got the call from her husband Bay that Lindsay was in labor. I knew her first had come quickly, so I headed down into the city where they live, and within an hour and a half Penny came quietly and peacefully into the world.

I would call this birth very “Austin”. Friends and family were coming and going and Lindsay was plugged in to her Hypnobabies the whole time, unaffected by the hoopla. There was root beer and music and a very cute 6 year old brother anxiously awaiting the arrival of his baby sister. The whole vibe was just fantastic and I loved being there as Lindsay effortlessly breathed her baby down and out into the water. It was such an amazing thing to witness. And baby Penny, obviously affected by this calm environment, just opened her big brown eyes and quietly took in everything, and everyone, around her.
