I have witnessed many things in my life. Some things changed the very being of me. Last night was one of them. When I agreed to do photograph a birth, I was excited at be able to add things to my portfolio but stressed at the same time. It's an incredibly busy season for photographers and honestly, I just looked at it as another task list, another thing to check off. But I committed myself to it and I always honor my word.
I walked into the Aimee's home and was told to follow the "groans". Aimee was in active labor and her contractions were about 2 minutes apart. I followed the "groans" and found Aimee and her husband in a blow up pool of water, lovingly embracing each other. I quickly took my camera out and this is just some of the incredible story that I was humbled and blessed to be able to capture for them.
