beckett: birth story || abilene, tx

oh, wow. where to even start.

beckett's was the first birth I've ever seen or shot. to say it was life-changing could not even begin to describe the amazing, sacred thing the whole experience was. 

one of the truest aspects of who I am is the mama in me. I don't know how or when it will happen, but I do know that one way or another, someday I am going to be someone's mom. there is nothing I want or feel more called to in the world. 

the honor of seeing and documenting someone become a mother and a father and of pure, beautiful life being brought into this world is one of the greatest things I've ever experienced. the hushed awe of everyone in the room. the nurses' quiet murmurs of encouragement. the excitement and anticipation in mom's eyes even through labor. dad whispering, "you're doing it! oh wow, honey! you're giving us our baby!"

I was shaking. I was crying. I was hoping against hope my shots would be sharp, because I couldn't clearly see a thing. 

what a precious, miraculous thing. 

scroll + be touched. xoxo

gemma decided she wanted a birth photographer 3 days before the was scheduled to induce, and I totally jumped at the opportunity. 

this precious family, with their six older children, could not wait to meet little ryan. my heart swelled and I pretty much let the tears flow to see this precious little one welcomed into the world with so much love.

I will never have the privilege of capturing a birth and not be moved immeasurably by it. what a sacred, beautiful thing to experience.

scroll + feel those feels. xoxo
