MIDDLE TENNESSEE BIRTH PHOTOGRAPHY
The moment a baby is brought into this world is one of the most empowering, sacred and beautiful experiences in a women’s life.
In 2013 I delivered my first born at Vanderbilt Hospital in Nashville, TN with the Nurse Midwives. It was a raw, exhausting, deeply moving and joyous experience. When my son came after 2.5 hours of pushing I have a “flash bulb” memory of his squishy newborn face followed by me noticing that he was a boy and promptly shouting at the top of my lungs “It’s a boy!” My husband and I laughed and laughed with delight at the arrival of our new son Felix.
Before I was in the deep throes of labor I mentioned to my doula it would be great if she could snap a few pictures with my camera during the big moment. She had no camera experience and the photos are blurry and grainy, but when I revisited those pictures a few months later all I could do was weep. Me clutching a tiny newborn to my bare chest, red-faced and laughing. My husband’s head buried in my shoulder with his hand grasping mine. I knew these photos would be cherished for a lifetime. I began to imagine how much more wonderful these photos could have been if someone who was a professional was behind the lens.
It was in that moment that I decided to be a birth photographer. I already had a passion for all things pregnancy and birth, plus was just starting to experiment with my “big girl” camera so the marrying of these two passions just made sense.
