Pure joy – Orlando birth photographer
Natassia and I went to high school together. A very small school. In Texas. And we are both children of the military lifestyle. So the odds of us coming back together for not only a reunion, but me to photograph her birth, seems slightly impossible. But it did work out that way. Turns out we ended up living only hours apart in Florida. We’ve kept up with each other’s lives through Facebook.
For the maternity session, she and Scott drove down from Orlando to Hollywood Beach. It was a CHILLY morning and quite cold in that ocean water, but we were rewarded with magnificent skies and gorgeous breaking waves. Even the seagulls put on a good show that day.
Because her birth was a scheduled c-section, it was easy to plan well in advance to document the big day. I crashed at their house the night before, and even gathered up a few pics of the non-human babies in the house.
Editing through these images, I often caught myself grinning. I’m sitting completely alone in my office, in silence, smiling. I guess it’s sort of like the way yawns are contagious, but all the giant grins contained in all these loving images of Olivia’s birth really made me feel happy.
See if you can look through and not feel your cheeks hurting by the end. 🙂
