Labor of Love: Birth Photographer AshevilleMay 17, 2011
Emotions are raw. Love. Agony. Doubt. Elation.
This sweet Mama, between contractions and trying to breathe, asked me if I ever get bored (while photographing a birth). “Never,” I answered.
I can’t imagine anything as wonderful as witnessing a mother as she labors to bring a new life to this earth. She is strong and selfless. She is supported and loved. And after the pain, and questioning, and the pushing (don’t forget), she is never the same. She is a Mother.
Grant and Lauren, it was such an honor to be with you as you welcomed little “H” to your family. You will be amazing parents. What a blessing!
