I had the honor of capturing another birth a few weeks ago…it was beautiful. It’s always a privilege to be invited to witness and capture one of the most intimate moments of my client’s lives! Thus far, I have worked exclusively with Brooke Friedberg (Compassionate Doula Care) – as a birth photographer, it’s so nice to have someone else in the room who is able to guide the couple through the birthing process.
I was so personally touched by this birth session…Gretchen & Chris were singing worship songs, quoting scripture, and praying throughout her entire labor. The love that they have for each other was so apparent – Chris was a gentle encourager and anticipated her needs during the whole process. Brooke was such a wonderful support for not only their physical needs but their emotional needs as well. Oh, and she provides lots of comic relief too. 😉
I’ll admit it. I cried my face off when Isa was born. I couldn’t help it. Thankfully I had a 10 lb camera to hide behind. 🙂
God has truly blessed you, Chris & Gretchen. Welcome, Miss Isa!
