Henry | Birth Story

HenryGresham-51

Oh, how we have all been waiting for the day that sweet little Henry joined us in this world. I was so excited when Michelle asked me to photograph her natural birth. Birth photography is the most surreal and emotional things that I get to do–and it is my absolute favorite thing to do. I’m obsessed and so in love!  I was lucky to make it in time to Henry’s birth–he was in a hurry! Phillip (Michelle’s husband) realized that no one had called me yet, so by the time I got there, Michelle was pushing and little Henry was on his way! Of course I frantically unzipped my camera bag and put my camera together the fastest I think I ever have in my life. Within about twenty minutes, Henry was in Michelle’s arms and the room was full of love and joy. Michelle was a champ while going through her unmedicated birth. She had the help of doTerra oils and some amazing nurses, midwives, and doulas.

Note: It was really really dark in the room, so I had my ISO jacked as high as I could get it. I refuse to use a flash and disrupt such a beautiful moment during births.  It took a lot of de-noising and adjustments in post processing, but I think they came out raw and beautiful!

Thank you again, Phillip and Michelle, for letting me be a part of such a wonderful experience. I am truly honored.
