My very first Birth I documented from beginning desperately waiting for each cm all the way to the very first scream. I remember as it was yesterday. So much emotion and my entire body was shaking! My niece was born. She is the reason why I photograph Birth once in a while. After experiencing not being able to delivering two children myself back a few years ago . I see every birth one of the most magical moments in life. Ever !
Children get very ill and won't survive. Some women won't ever conceive and experience a pregnancy . Even though I never met them, I was gifted to 3 healthy children afterwards.
I want to believe that God has a beautiful story for each of our children and their parents.
Our children. So pure. So innocent. So perfect.
So next time when you see a Birth Photographer with tears in her eyes, regardless of the situation. There are only 2 reasons. One, the emotions of mother welcoming her precious child and the magic moment that is visible filled in everyone in the room.
Two, the emotions of mother saying Goodbye of her precious child as the magical moment cries and remains in silent.
We take every piece of those moment with us. A piece will always stay with us . Yes, even when we go to bed and get back up.
