Arroyo Grande Home Birth Session // Baby Shepherd
If you have never witnessed a birth, I highly recommend doing so. I can't get enough! Between being on call for a long period of time, not knowing for sure when it's going to happen, and not to mention having to usually deal with VERY low lighting - they are probably the most challenging thing to photograph. But they are THE most rewarding. Watching a woman in such a fierce and primal state and the look on her face when she finally sees her baby... it is just too much for words! Pure Magic. Do yourself a favor and go YouTube some birth videos, seriously! It is the most beautiful, humbling experience. I met Becca earlier this year when she booked me and I have since done her family's portraits and now the birth of her son! She has become a really special friend to me and I'm so excited to watch their family continue to grow. I am extremely honored to have been a part of their beautiful homebirth and their first moments as a family of five. Congratulations guys!!
