Harlow: A Birth Story {Indianapolis, IN Birth Photographer}

This was by far the most amazing experience I’ve ever had as a photographer!  Seeing new life brought into this world is hard to describe…it’s just such a miracle, every single time!

Natalie is a fan of my Facebook page and saw that I was offering discounted birth sessions – so she emailed me, we chatted, and a few weeks before the birth, I met her and Scott at Panera to get all those questions answered and jitters out of the way.  We had such a great conversation and I felt so comfortable with them from the start.  Natalie kept me updated on her pregnancy and let me know that since the baby was breech, she would have to have a c-section – and thankfully, her OB had no problems with me being in the operating room!

When the big day arrived, I left my house at 4:45am to get to the hospital a little before 5:30.  I was there to greet Natalie, Scott, and Natalie’s mother, and we all walked in together.  Natalie was really nervous, as any woman would be before a c-section…but she did SUCH a great job the entire time.  I have so many pictures of her smiling and laughing.  Scott was so supportive of his wife, holding her hand the entire time and brushing tears from her face.  The moment Harlow was born, we all started cheering, oohing and ahhing, and exclaiming, “Oh my gosh!”

Harlow was a little firecracker from the start.  She wasn’t happy with the nurses messing with her or bathing her…but she was perfectly content to lay on her mama.  She was awake for quite a while and all of her tiny cries were just adorable.

Natalie and Scott, thank you SO MUCH for allowing me to capture this special moment in your lives!
