Sawyer’s Birth Session

I never quite have the words to say to explain how it feels to be a birth photographer.  It is such an amazing experience, such an honor to be let into a couple's lives during these intimate, emotional moments.  I'm always a little beside myself that y'all trust ME to capture such an important event, and I have to say, they have become some of my favorite sessions.  It's even better when mom and dad bring baby back for a newborn session, which they did!  Little Sawyer's newborn session will be up next on the blog!  But back to the moment...  Like I said before, I don't have the words, but as the saying goes:  "a picture is worth a thousand words", so here's a couple thousand for you 😀  

At this point, poor Kaylyn had already been in labor all night the night before, and all day.  I kept checking my phone, waiting, and she greeted me with a smile.

They talked about it.  A lot.

There were tears...

And silliness 🙂

Do you see the cross in the back?  I believe someone was watching over them.

Once the decision was made, everyone wanted to lighten the mood, bring a smile, and silently pray for the best.

It's a long, fast walk to that bright light room...
