Southern California Birth Photographer | Noble’s Birth Story | Redlands California

The first moment I met Sara I knew she was a special person, and I knew that I was going to not only have an amazing client but make an awesome friend as well. She was just as excited as I was about capturing her birth story, and after an epic Maternity session I couldn’t wait to see what thier birth story would bring.

That moment of getting the phone call in the middle of the night that you’ve been waiting months for is so exciting. It’s like Christmas morning not going to lie, tons of anticipation and excitement. Witnessing a birth will never get old, it’s just simply a one of a kind experience I hope everyone is able to witness one day. The energy in the room was so overwhleming, I got emotional and had to take a breather, hopefully that doesn’t sound to weird and someone understands what I am talking about lol

Her midwives were amazing during the whole thing, letting mama do what she felt was needed at the time, and just supported her when she needed them. I am so lucky to have met them and to have watched them in thier element

Thank you to this family x100000000.0000000, I couldn’t be more proud to say that I know you, and was there when you brought your sweet little man into the world. I know I have a friend for life (even if we’ll have to stay in touch on FB ) and I wish you all the best in your next adventure!
