Welcome, Isa! : A Birth Story {Goshen, IN Birth Photographer}

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!
