I have so been looking forward to sharing these photos with you. This is the natural birth of gorgeous baby boy Hudson. His mama is the beautiful and talented Amanda of Organic Bebe Photography, and in November I did a fun family maternity shoot for them. We didn’t know if Hudson would be a boy or a girl, and it’s always fun to photograph surprise babies! Mama was so strong and powerful and beautiful during this birth. She was feeling defeated after staying at 4cm for a very long time, but went from 4 to 10 in about an hour, and delivered in just a few pushes. I was especially impressed when she turned down an epidural during transition!
I came back to the hospital the morning after the birth to capture Hudson meeting his older brother and sister, with a Fresh 48 session. There were some really sweet moments where big bro and sis were smelling Hudson’s head, and searching for his itty bitty feet in the blankets, and of course holding him. It’s so nice to come back and complete the birth story with the meeting of siblings (or grandparents).
I look forward to seeing some amazing photos of Hudson (and his siblings) as they all grow. Hugs T fam, and thank you for letting me be a part of this very special day.
