I’m a little behind on blogging, ok a lot behind on blogging. I had a crazy baby boom, and the result was over loading my computer and frying my hard drive! Unfortunately the nearest Mac store is 2 hours away, which made something that should have been fairly easy turn into a 3 week fiasco. Phew, now that its all behind me I’ve been working on breaking it again by not giving it a moments rest. Seriously though. I have blisters on my wrist from editing so much. However, all these perfect little babies are worth the struggle! I almost got to be there for Axton’s birth, but things got a little complicated and mommy had a c-section instead. I did get to pop in and meet him for his fresh 48 and then again for his newborn session. To me its crazy to see the difference between 2 days and 2 weeks. Let alone how they look after a month! Talk about growing fast.
But yes, I do sometimes shoot births, I don’t advertise a lot for it because its hard to commit and lockdown such an unknown schedule without dependable baby sitters! I love them, I think they are magical and sometimes I wish I were secretly a doula. My dream job just might be to hang out with pregnant women all the time, be there while they deliver, capture those magic first moments of life on the outside and the first time baby and momma are united out of the womb. Then to get the little details of the human you made! The alien like fingers, wrinkly saggy skin. The first time they use their lungs to scream. Sigh. Its so magical. I know I totally go out of my way to be a weirdo, sorry guys! I love fresh 48’s for the same reason. Love the raw unposed shots of the new little ones. Growing humans is amazing.
