When I get the call, my heart starts racing … I’ll be witnessing a new life that day.
When Dan & Courtney called, it was peaceful. She was progressing at home … anticipating the moment that their new baby would be born. A few hours later, they arrived at the hospital just in time. A reminder that birth is natural, and doesn’t happen on anyone’s schedule … something they had a laugh about later (he was almost a ‘you-were-born-in-the-car’ baby).
It was the moment he was born in that sunny room. It was the moment they became a family of four. It was the moment their first-born, Arlo, met his little brother for the first time. It was the moment when everything settled & they sat together and held their new baby.
These are the reasons I love documenting birth.
This is the story of the day Dan & Courtney welcomed baby Eliot into the world …
