It still seems like a dream that I was able to photograph Arabella’s birth. For me, everything about this birth happened so quickly. Kayla, the mother, contacted me Wednesday evening asking if I could photograph her daughter’s birth. Then Friday morning, I got the text saying she was in labor! After a few hours, I got the call from her doula, Chirstine, saying they were on their way to the birth center at Babies in Bloom and that the labor had quickly picked up. When I arrived at the birth center, I was so surprised to find out that I actually beat them, only to find out later that Kayla almost gave birth on the way over! Minutes after I got there, Kayla arrived and gave birth steps inside her room. She did an amazing job! Arabella was born at 11:19 AM October 24th. Kayla finally got to relax with her baby girl and enjoy her beautiful room.
