"Sometimes the littlest things take up the most room in your heart."
Winnie the Pooh
The day that you welcome your baby into this world is, hands down, the most important day of your life. It surpasses your wedding day. It surpasses graduation. It surpasses every single thing that you've ever done, every single time, no matter how or where you give birth. It's one of the few things in life that can't be staged or recreated. This truly only happens once. We like to believe that we will never, ever forget the way our partners looked down at the squishy little baby that you worked so hard to bring earthside, or how the tears spilled down your cheeks as you looked into that sweet baby's face for the first time, but we do. Eventually, our birth stories become shorter and shorter. Time passes. We remember the feeling, but we can't remember the details. That is why you hire a birth photographer - to have a tangible reminder of one of the most wonderful days of your life. I don't take it lightly that you invite me into your sacred space during, what can be, one of the best days of you and your partners lives.
