My first birth

It’s really late, or really early, or whatever. I just got back from photographing my first birth.

Amazing, and humbling and just so so cool. I’m on a total birth high, and I didn’t even have to give birth!

p.s. he beat Valentine’s day by one minute.

  • Amber - Emily I do want to! But I’ll be going to a scrapbooking convention 🙂 heheheFebruary 15, 2011 – 1:47 pmReplyCancel

  • Amber - Carmen, I didn’t have any issues. Tracy cleared it with her doctor first. When I got there they had already written my name on the board as one of the people allowed in the room. The only thing I had to be careful of was not to use a flash as it redirects the fancy spot lighting they use for the actual delivery and exams.February 15, 2011 – 1:49 pmReplyCancel

  • Tracy - He looks big in that photo, for a newborn that is. Everyone said he was a big baby but compared to Lachlan he seemed small to me. Oh I am so excited to see the whole shabang, you have no idea.February 22, 2011 – 8:34 amReplyCancel
