Edmonton birth photography - Indiana Bre Sunrise
When my wedding clients are expecting babies, I feel like life is coming full circle. It shouldn’t seem like such a surprise and it is a natural progression but I feel super proud of them when I hear or they send me a message to tell me a baby is on the way. Danielle and Cody have been dreaming of their family long before their pregnancy and long before their marriage too. They’ve always wanted kids and growing their family with little ones. I am so excited to watch this little one grow and to meet more of these little perfect Jarvis lovies.
The idea of birth photography for some people is a bit scary. The moments leading up to welcoming a baby into this world seems private and having a photographer there might seem obtrusive or embarrassing. When done right, birth photography is beautiful and intense. My plan for births are to tell the story in a documentary and unobtrusive way.
Here is a bit of Danielle had to say about the session and her thoughts leading up to it:
My initial thoughts when Michel presented Cody and I with birth photography was that it was an interesting idea. Michel had done our wedding photos a year prior and we knew she was insanely talented so we knew the pictures would be amazing!! So after showing Cody a picture or two of birth photography we said “Why not?”. Lets be honest in the midst of a labor and delivery room its slightly busy, chaotic and its not like the whole time your partner is gonna be standing there with the camera ready to capture each detail. His job is to be your comforter and support not the photographer!
It was a complete honour to be in the room while Indiana Bre Sunrise came into this world and to document this birth for two amazing people. The nurses and doctors at Misericordia hospital were welcoming of me being in the room and mostly apologizing for being in my way, which they totally weren’t! I have to thank them for being so open to this process.
Here is the video of the birth. It still makes me cry every time. xox
Welcome to the world baby Indiana, you are loved beyond measure already.
Thank-you Danielle and Cody for allowing me to document the birth of your beautiful baby girl.
If you are interested in having your birth documented or just have some questions about it, please get in touch with us. We’d love to talk with you more about being there for such an amazing time for you.
