Every once in awhile you are able to witness such a beautiful story that it brings you to tears. That was Edith’s story for me. This beautiful little girl was born into her mothers arms so quickly everyone was slightly shocked.
Telling a birth story in photographs can be a tricky business. To tell the story in such a way that people, other than the mother and father, are able to view them is a wonderful complexity. One that I very much enjoy. There are photos that are ‘for her eyes only’ and won’t be shared outside of the bedroom. I love to capture photos that can be shared. The photos shared with the child as they grow and become their own person. The ones where everyone was celebrating them!
The beauty of this birth brought tears to my eyes.
