From a Birth Photographer’s View

“When I read that she was 8cm dilated, I fully expected to walk into the room and see her in the throws of laboring through transition. If you’ve felt this or seen this happen, you know exactly what I was expecting to see. What I was met with, rather, was serenity. Complete, and total calm. A. was smiling and laughing between contractions, then quietly riding each wave as it came. The controlled chaos of eminent delivery surrounded her bed, but she was in her own space. She was confident in herself, her decisions, and her body, and it showed.” –Leslie Lowe, Green & Grey Photography

I loved reading this birth photographer’s perspective of a birth I attended. And, the photos! Well, take a look for yourself. Enjoy!
