As a birth photographer getting a call or text at 3:30 in the morning isn’t out of the norm AT ALL! In fact, I love it! The adrenaline of knowing I am being trusted to capture truly the most precious miracle will wake me right up. I got to the hospital around 4:15 or so when mama was around 6-7 cm and her contractions were rhythmically coming. Every few minutes she would get in her zone and concentrate through the moment. It truly is a beautiful site to see how strong women are. Dad was also present and so helpful in coaching mom and reassuring her that she was doing great. These are a few of my faves from that day.
