{Wonder of Sand}

This sweet little face I will have to share with you from time to time… after all he is the whole reason The Birth Story exists. It was during my first cuddle with him I knew that my passion for photography would have to merge with the incredible story of birth. In the following months, it consumed my thoughts. I don’t even view it as work anymore, because ‘work’ always seemed to be something I had to do, while telling the story of birth, through art, was what I really wanted to do! I have big dreams for The Birth Story, so much more than the photography side of it.  I may share them with you one day.

So that brings me to this place. I hope it inspires you in some way.  Well, back to what this post is actually about..

Recently I took Indi for a walk in the pram down to a lake. I wasn’t actually planning on taking photos but as I watched him enter a world of discovery in the sand, I just had to snap a few. I loved watching him be amazed at how sand ran through his fingers. He rummaged around and found lots of cool little things in the sand, followed by the usual ‘what does it taste like’ test.  I’m not sure who enjoyed this adventure more.

“Hello, I’m interested in your Birth Photography.” Tania says calmly over the phone. “Great,” I replied and we continued to talk about it for a couple minutes.

“When are you due?”

“Umm I’m actually in labour now…”

*Jaw drops* I grabbed my cameras, did a little nervous wee and out the door!  I arrived at the hospital at the same time as Adam and Tania, thankfully, as I’d never met them but was just looking for a labouring mother!

Tania was AMAZING!  Calm and collected the whole time. As we walked into her room, she lay on the bed and had a few more intense contractions… 12 minutes later she was holding her little sweetness! Perfection.

Many of my friends are yet to go through the birthing experience, and are understandably anxious about that time coming. This is the birth story I wish they could have seen! So natural, so smooth and so incredible.

I’ll say it again..

Birth IS beautiful!

Thank you Tania, Adam and Cate for allowing me to be a part of such an intimate moment in your lives. I will never forget it.
