Baby CC made her long awaited debut in to the world and I was overjoyed to make the visit to the hospital to document that afterglow, hear about the birth experience and congratulate mom and dad. It is a magical time. You’re on this adrenaline rush from all the serotonin and witnessing that, is just as lovely as some newborn cuddles themselves. Well… almost 😉
Some families aren’t 100% sold on the idea of having a birth documentary… and I get that! It is an intense time, personal, emotional experience and having a photographer in the room can sometimes change the energy. Every once in awhile, if I cannot attend the birth or if a mom decides she doesn’t want photos of the actual birth, I’ll do a hospital visit before check out. Is that what it’s called? Check out? I suppose it’s not exactly a hospital stay!
