This is Lynzy’s second child, I photographed the birth of her first born Lochlan his was the very first birth I had the pleasure of attending and Photographing. So when Lynzy found out she was pregnant again it was a given that she would have me document little Isla’s birth as well. Its always magical and awe inspiring to be there when a new baby enters the world. All at once 9 months of waiting comes to an end, All of the pain, sweat and tears of labour come to a crescendo of euphoria as a mother sees her baby for the first time. Birth is one of the most empowering things a woman can experience. Its a way of discovering things about your body and your mind you never thought possible.
This winter took a long time to arrive but once it did, there was snow everywhere.
There hadnt been much snow when Danielle booked her lifestyle Maternity Session, but when the day arrived we had a full on blizzard. As much as I hate driving in that much snow it makes for a beautiful backdrop for photos! I think I was more excited about this shoot than Danielle was when I saw all of the beautiful fluffy snow hanging on all of the tree branches and to top it off is was relatively warm. So we got all the beauty of winter without the bite. Here are a few shots from their Snowy outdoor Maternity Session.
Every birth is different and magical watching a new life begin is awe inspiring !
To witness something so beautiful and to be able to share those moments with the family is an incredible honour. That’s why I was so excited when Lindsay had me photograph the birth of her first child.It was a snowy afternoon when Laila Ray decided to enter this world.Lindsay was handling labour like a champ she was so calm about the birth she even remembered to pack a beautiful blanked to use during labour and was even applying makeup and doing her hair shortly after she gave birth. Nothing slows this girl down :)
This is what Lindsay had to say about the experience
“She’s my photographer for life. She’s been there to capture all my precious moments dear to my heart; through my engagement, to my wedding, to the birth of our Laila. On top of that, she captured them beautifully. By far my favourite were these raw images that I can look back on for years to come because after all, it was my favourite day in the world”
