Last Sunday I had the opportunity to shoot my first birth story for our friends Nate and Tayler. It was an amazing experience to say the least! To be on the other end of a natural birth was incredible. I was able to witness similar things I went through, in her, and kept reflecting back to my own birth. Obviously I don't remember many small details from my own because I was so focused on getting Wes here, so I've never really thought about what my body was doing. Seeing her work so hard for so many hours (25+!!) was inspiring. This experience, more than my own, proved to me how incredible the female body is.
My favorite part was that feeling that rushed over the room when he entered the world. I had to pull back the tears in my eyes… It truly is a heavenly moment and one I hope to witness again! I left feeling so inspired by life and the miracle of it. I'm grateful to Nate and Tayler for letting me capture these memories for them. Welcome to the world baby Remy!
