It was such a pleasure to photograph Christine’s birth. This was her first, and she so calmly passed her “edd” and waited for her baby to arrive. Christine was fortunate to give birth during the day at the ever beautiful Austin Area Birth Center. While I enjoy the challenge of a dark midnight birth, I sure do enjoy attending one in the middle of the day every now and then!
Tom, Christine’s partner, was a little unsure of having a birth photographer at first. I am so glad to have shared this amazing slideshow with him to show him how important it is to have his role in the labor and delivery documented. In the end he was happy with their decision to have me there. And check out those sweet skin-to-skin moments we captured!
Enjoy this simple yet triumphant birth story. Christine seemed to really know what she was doing bringing that beautiful baby earth side! Congratulations Christine and Tom… Genevieve is so blessed to have you and you are going to be fantastic parents!
