Your birth was beautiful, Emma.
The love between your Mommy and Daddy was felt by everyone in the room.
Your first breath filled all of our hearts with joy.
Your sweet, raspy cries as you cleared your lungs and announced your arrival were heartwarming and angelic.
It did not matter that your birth was a surgical one.
It was spectacular and you were absolutely perfect.
I’m excited to share your birth story with the world to commemorate the conclusion of your first year
and celebrate the amazing little person you have become!
May your birthday be filled with lots of sugar, giggles, and love!
Having a planned c-section does not mean you shouldn’t have pictures!
Birth photography is not about that moment of delivery.
It is about the connections, support, love, and of course all of those first moments.
What I love most about being a birth photographer is having the opportunity
to capture moms at their strongest and dads when they are most in love.
Those incredible moments don’t disappear just because you don’t labor or push a baby out.
And your baby’s birthday is no less beautiful.
