Three years ago, before I had ever photographed a birth, I gathered up the courage to ask Julie if she might be willing to let me photograph hers. To which she said "AH! I was going to ask you if you would!". Little Jason's birthday was pretty much the best day of work. Ever. A day that shifted my course irrevocably. That was the day that I knew...I was born to be a birth photographer.
Today, I am thrilled to share with you...the birth of his little sister, Jaelynn Ann. Since I tested out birth photography on Jason, I had to up the ante a little with Jaelynn. I took the opportunity to try incorporating a few video clips. Enjoy!
Don't forget to leave a comment below to help Julie & Jeremy win a print from Jaelynn's birthday. They need 50 people to comment for a FREE 8x10 mounted print (a $40 value). And if you missed their adorable lifestyle maternity session on Blackwater River, check that out here!
Fun fact: Julie & Jeremy were in the same delivery room, and had the same nurses as Melissa & Ace did just three days prior. They were supposed to have the same doctor too, but he wasn't able to be on call when Melissa went into labor. *sad face*
