I had a big opportunity a couple months ago to photograph little Henry David's birth story. I remember getting a text early morning around 6 am. My friend Cassidy was in labor! So naturally I jumped out of bed, put on some leggings and gathered my gear and sped out the door as fast as I could and drove to the hospital. Little Henry David was taking his time and enjoying his last hours listening to his mom's heart beat. The closest he will ever be.
Every time I look back in time, I reassure myself I am the luckiest. I get to be in a room full of love with no bad vibes, no bad thoughts; only love. It felt like such a peaceful transition, you might think of course Maria is saying peaceful, she is not pushing a baby out but believe me, a delivery room is real magic and it has been one of the greatest experiences I have ever felt.
Baby boy, Henry David, was born around 12:15 pm. I am so grateful I was able to witness such a miracle. It was amazing.
A close friend of yours is expecting a little peanut? I promise you, to have vivid memories of such an amazing day might be the most beautiful treasure for you and your little family.
