This day is so special to me. The day little Caroleena was born and the day I fell in love with birth photography. Her beautiful momma, Isabel, and I met while she was visiting her father (my patient) at the hospital I work at…Timmy was there too! Unfortunately, I never saw them again after that day, but always remembered their sweet and caring personalities.
UNTIL…one Sunday at church we reunited! They were there as guests with their family and I am beyond happy we were able to reconnect! Isabel thanked me for her father's care during his hospital stay and we exchanged phone numbers! A few weeks later, Isabel emailed me to let me know she was pregnant and the rest is history!
Let me just say that there is a lot left out to this story, but I want to make certain that Our Lord gets full credit for all of it! He truly amazes me each and every day through the connections and bonds he creates with people you least expect.
Isabel and Timmy have such an amazing bond as husband and wife and now parents. Timmy was an unbelievable coach while Isabel was in labor and delivered a beautiful baby girl completely natural! NATURAL, people! No pain meds, no IV fluids, no nothing (and still managed to look as pretty as ever)! Just pure love, faith, and endurance.
"When a woman is giving birth, she has sorrow because her hour has come, but when she has delivered the baby, she no longer remembers the anguish, for joy that a human being has been born into the world." John 16:21
I am so thankful they have allowed me to photograph such a special day! I now introduce to you my first ever birth photography session!
