Baby Owen’s Birth~ Lake Charles, Louisiana Birth Photographer ~ HF Photography

**Before viewing this blog post, take notice that this is a post about a photographed birth. Although very slightly and tastefully, some body parts may be in view. Thank you to Owen’s mom for giving me permission to share these beautiful images**

I don’t shoot many births. Mainly because of how time consuming and hectic it is for my schedule. Being on call during the last month of a pregnancy with three kids 6 and under is crazy. I take on a few birthing clients a year only because I truly love shooting births. Partially because the whole witnessing of a miracle thing and partially because it’s easy. The emotion is there. I do nothing to bring it out. There is no posing or coordinating of people. Just me dancing around the nurses trying to stay out of the way of the main event. I consider myself an empathetic person so when I’m in the room with someone that is seeing their child for the first time, I feel like I’m experiencing that with them. That new baby high could also be part of why I love to photograph births. All the excitement of having a baby without me actually having four children……Maybe I will take on more births to get my baby fix.

Baby Owen was born on my “me” day. The day I had set aside for poolside relaxation sans children. You would think leaving the pool after half an hour, without a pina colada, would be tragic but it was spectacular. I’ll take baby Owen over a pina colada any day. Check out a few of my favorite images from the day Owen was born.
