At the beginning of January this year, I photographed a birth story in Olathe, KS at Olathe Medical Center. Baby was born by emergency c-section before I was at the hospital. I joined the parents as they entered the room to recover and waited for their new baby boy who was in the NICU.
The pictures below document the story of Dominic’s birth day, both the happy and joyful moments as Mom and Dad waited to have their baby with them, and then later as I photographed them the next day (with Baby) and later at their home (lifestyle newborn session). Not every moment during a birth is happy, sometimes they’re difficult and painful, but every birth is precious regardless of how they entered the world.
