Baby Lincoln Manteca CA Livermore CA birth and newborn photography
At the beginning of this year, I decided I would like to add birth photography to my list of offerings. I put out a call on my Facebook business page looking for a few families who would like me to take photos of their birth experience, in trade for adding it to my portfolio. I had quite a few takers, but ALL of them were due in July, which can be tricky to schedule since due dates are just estimates. Jaimie was my first to respond, and July seemed so far off back then. But now July has come and gone, and their baby boy came right on time. I met them last week at Doctors’ Hospital Manteca as she was getting set for her epidural. The nurse assured me we still had quite a few hours until baby would arrive, so I left for a bit and came back when she was a little further along. After about 5 more hours of labor, baby boy was ready to make his debut. Out came this perfect little pink boy, with strawberry blonde hair and quite a cry!
I had no idea how much I would love this genre of photography back when I asked for volunteers. But I do. I LOVE it. It was beyond AMAZING to watch this little life come into the world, and to capture all of the moments and emotions that went along with it. I can’t wait to do another one. If you are currently pregnant or know someone who is and would be interested in a birth session, please contact me here or on my FB page. I am offering a few more at a discounted rate for the remainder of the year. Manteca, Modesto, or Tracy births only. Take a look at little Lincoln’s arrival…
Thank you Jaimie and Trey for letting me share this day with you. Something I’ll remember forever. 🙂
