I got completely lost in this beautiful images by Carolyn Spranger Photography. Memories of my own birthing experience. Moments to always remember - the very second you became a Mother. xo
The Story: This was my first birth that i've had the honor of photographing. Kim, the midwife (https://www.facebook.com/KimLendertsHomebirthMidwifery?ref=ts) suggested me to them. They had a wonderful hypnobabies water home birth at 41wks 1day. Mom was calm and relaxed for her labor. Once her pushing stage came she struggled finding a comfortable position in the tub. After an hour of pushing a beautiful baby girl was born. The birth was almost missed! Mom stopped and said 'is there a baby?' and we all looked while dad reached down to grab her. They had no ultrasounds during pregnancy so it was a surprise what they were having, dad had to lift the towel just to see. I was honored to be there to shoot this magical event, and mom and dad will treasure these images for a lifetime as this will be their only child.
