Welcome Baby Axton | Birth Photography | Sanford, N.C., Photographer

Look what I was up to in the middle of the night a few weeks ago! I tried my hand at birth photography. I have NEVER done something like this before but when my friend (and fellow photographer) ask if I would be there for the birth of her first son ... I HAD to say yes!


Killing time on the cell phone as she patiently waits for her boy.



Here, I got a moment between soon-to-be-papa and momma ... He was so proud of her and super excited, he gave her an encouraging wink in between pushes. <3

She was AWESOME! If I didn't know better, I would have thought pushing a baby out of you was easy stuff! She made it look so easy!


Dad didn't want to originally cut the umbilical cord ... but he changed his mind when he saw his boy!



Isn't he just the cutest?! And look at that pout! Mom and Dad are going to have problems saying no if he ever uses that lil' poot'em against them to get what he wants! ;-)




Momma finally got to lil' Axton after he was checked out by the nurses and all wrapped up in his cozy blanket. She got to hold him the second he was out for some skin to skin contact, but soon needed to get vitals. This was when she REALLY got to look at him and enjoy his cute lil' cheeks, ears, nose, and bask in his adorableness!




It was a long night, and I though I wasn't going to be able to stay for the birth, but it was so worth it! I definitely love lifestyle photography (hence why I love homecomings so much), and I'm thinking I could get used to the long hours photographing the birth of a child ... hm....

If you are expecting a child and would love to have his or her birth photographed, please contact me! I would love to be there and capture this beautiful moment in you and your spouse's lives! :-)
