A sweet friend and talented photographer agreed to photograph my birth and captured amazing shots of this experience. I'm posting a few of my favorites here, but the rest are hosted on her website.
Can you tell the story of a birth in pictures? Amazingly, yes. Kudos to Lexi for creating such a storyboard with these images.
Every time I look through the photographs, I feel the peace and relaxation during active labor, the support of those around me, the anticipation during crowning, and the overwhelming joy of each picture with him in my arms.
The way they flow together and the expressions captured is truly artistic. Thank you, Lexi!
