Peace like (a) River – Hollywood Florida homebirth photographer

After our amazing maternity session together, I honestly didn’t think it could get much better… I was wrong.

In less than one hour from the time I arrived, baby River arrived. Geri made having a baby look like a minor inconvenience. A slight disruption to her plan to sleep in a little longer. If all births went this smoothly, this beautifully and this quickly, I’d try to book at least a dozen a month to photograph.

And if her husband Alex wasn’t working as a marine scientist already, I’d tell him to become a doula. Seriously.

Big sister Coral was awoken after awhile to meet her new sister and took it all in stride. The entire experience was so touching and seemed so damn EASY, except I know better. Easy doesn’t come this easy unless you have the right attitude and love in your family to make it possible. Geri and Alex clearly have it under control.
