{ Jemimah ~ Bendigo Birth Photographer }

It is never a small thing that a couple would invite me, and all those scrolling through this blog, into one of the most intimate and raw moments of their life. As you look through their  images, I want you to remember that. This is real. This is their birth story and it is a treat for us to be invited.

.

4:30 am the phone rings and adrenaline kicks in instantly. I am so pumped and on the way in a few minutes. When I chat with couples prior to the birth, they always say, ‘We’ll feel bad calling you through the night’. Forget it. I love it. haha.

.

Dave and Adaline are just beautiful, so supportive and loving to each other. A beautiful thing to watch and capture. Men, can I just say – never underestimate your power of support for a birthing woman! A loving, supportive partner is the best pain relief..in my opinion.

.

We hadn’t been in the delivery room long when the time of birth was drawing near. Adaline’s words brought a little tear to my eye as she expressed her fears to Dave. Adaline, you are so much stronger than you realise! With amazing midwives around you (a shout out to you unsung heroes), 45 minutes after we entered the room you were birthing your little darling! How incredible! My absolute favourite moment is when the midwife lifted little Jemimah up and you were surprised she was actually out! What a precious moment to remember laying eyes on her for the first time. This is why I am a birth photographer. Need I say more?

Abby - I cannot get enough of your photos, I have looked through these albums so many times and every time I look at them I am just as amazed and emotional as I was the first time I saw them.
Will definitely been booking you when the time comes for me to have my own babies 🙂
