This is my first birth ever, and I can't thank Danielle and Juan enough for having me there to capture Eli's birth story.
Fifteen days before he was born Danielle called to say they were going to the hospital. "Just relax, we will call you if anything happens." Ummm!!! Easier said then done when I was absolutely bursting with excitement. I immediately chatted to a few of my photography mates, and well I couldn't wait any longer, I drove up to the hospital and just sat quietly in the car park. It turned out to be nothing, but it was a good practice run.
When the real day came, Danielle woke me just before 1 am. I grabbed my gear and met them at the hospital, her contractions were getting stronger by the minute. I just sat back and documented it all. I like to think they didn't even notice me there.
When he was born tears flowed...from my eyes too! It was an amazing journey. I'm really looking forward to documenting more!
