They knew they couldn’t control everything about their daughter’s birth, but one thing baby Joanna’s parents were sure of–they wanted her to arrive on her own time. So it was that I got the call on an early Saturday morning with the exciting news that baby Joanna was ready to meet the world. She was going to be delivered by c-section, but she was coming on her own time.
I know I always say this, but I mean it every time–it’s truly an honor to be present at a birth, and I so enjoy being able to capture the moments of such an exciting time. This was true for baby Joanna’s birth, too. A big congratulations to her family!
On a side note, after photographing this birth, I’m even more convinced that having a birth doula is a wonderful idea!
