Edinburgh birth photography | Arrival of baby Innes
Hello everyone. I don’t know where even to start. I’m still a bit emotional and lack of sleep had it’s tool as well. I did my first birth photography session as part of my this years project. I had this idea already for a while, but summer got far too busy and simply had no time to really sit down and think about it.
When I first announced that I’m looking for families to do birth photography project, I got always asked ‘But why would you want to do something like that?’ I just wanted to try and create something what would have very deep personal attachment for family. It would create different feeling then when you are coming for baby photography at my studio.
Now since I already did my first session, I can definitely say that this was by faaaaar most emotional work I have ever done. There was so much more to it then just being there as a photographer and story teller. You can be as a support, friend, someone who can do little help tasks. It is hard to describe, but once I was leaving house, I felt so uplifting and at the same time so tired as well. Smiles, tears, emotions everywhere and happy family.
Never knew what to expect and how things could go. Lindsey decided to go with home birth. It was very calm and piece full experience. Everything was going really well and Rick was there 110% to support her. Got a text just after 3pm and my heart started racing. I felt like I’m doing my first wedding again :) It is amazing feeling when you dip into something unknown and new. 10.30pm little Innes was here. Rick popped bubbly and we all had a sip.
Big thanks to family for allowing me to be part of such a personal event. I feel very honoured to being bale to create this story. Just amazing and so beautiful.
On a second day I came to document how little Isla first met her brother. Just adorable to see her already planning playing together :)
