Although it's not for everyone, I believe it's such a privilege & honour to witness a birth. To be in the room when a baby takes his first breathe, her first cry. It's beyond amazing! I was lucky enough to be there for Miss Ruby's birth last week in Mildura, her mum's first labour was a quick one so we were half expecting this one to be similar but it turned out a bit longer than we thought (although still not a slow labour in my books!)
I feel like a woman's birth space is rather sacred, so I do not talk unless spoken to (which is usually never during a contraction), however, I was amazed that Charley was able to talk & even laugh during her contractions. I was absolutely in awe of Charley as she just seemed to accept her labour pain & cope amazingly without any pain relief throughout the entire process.
I am finding it hard to choose a favourite image from this birth photography session. I love the shot of Ruby clinging onto dad's finger as well as some of the detail shots of Ruby's labour.
Charley & Jarrod, thank you so much for allowing me the complete honour of being in your birth space & photographing some amazing memories for you!
