Taking a step back from my usual field, I ventured into the amazing realm of Birth Photography. This is the second time I've had the unique opportunity to capture a new life coming into the world and, once again, it's changed me! I remember thinking about the first time I heard about birth photography and I was unsure how I would feel about having a photographer capturing "that moment", personally. I thought that it would be too invasive or annoying during such a stressful, vulnerable time.. but I was so wrong. I love this. Not only is this life changing moment documented in a stunning way, but the family is off the hook. Dad can actually be involved in the delivery and any Grandmas that are fortunate enough to be around don't have to worry about taking pictures. Blaze & Cari have been good friends of mine since I started dating my husband over 7 years ago. We were fortunate enough to attend each other's weddings and continue to make time for dinner together even though we're all so busy! So when Cari told me she was pregnant, we decided to document her pregnancy on a weekly basis. Starting from Week 6, I saw her almost every week to photograph her growing belly! I'll share these images soon, I promise.
I'm so happy that Cari decided to have me document Aria's Birth Story. I arrived at Kaiser in Panorama City at about 7am on March 29, 2013 and Aria made her grand entrance at 12:34pm the same day! She was so calm and hardly cried. She just looked around at everyone and took it all in.. hopefully this is a preview of the next few months ahead for my sweet friends! I was so honored to watch them become parents and I'm really excited to share the images with you all today:
