There is something magical about witnessing a couple become parents for the first time. The excitement and anticipation as they know their lives are about to drastically change forever, and then the joy as they meet this little person that they already love so much- it always touches my heart. [pullquote]After spending more than 26 hours with us during labor, I almost feel as is if my wife and I have known Morgan forever… even though we only met her a few months ago! She was so much more than a photographer. She helped comfort my wife and I, gave us helpful advice, and even stepped in to drive us to another hospital when things got bad during labor. All of this while taking AMAZING pictures. If you need a photographer, pick Morgan! ~Michael [/pullquote]
Mom labored at New Birth Company, a birth center in Overland Park, and had planned to deliver there, however it became necessary to transfer. One of the midwives from New Birth Company came to SMMC to deliver Baby and helped Mom to have a wonderful and peaceful birth even in a hospital setting! I have all great things to say about the midwives and care at New Birth Company- they take good care of their families!
There is more to a birth than the delivery itself, and those are the details I work hard to capture. From still images of Dad finding a heart shaped leaf as he holds his wife during labor outside, Mom and Dad laughing during pushing, the transition from “I’m going to be a daddy” t-shirt to crossing it out to “I am a daddy”, first cries, and so much more… It’s all there, the precious moments that sometimes are unnoticed, but are in their pictures and video for the family to cherish forever.
