Benjamin’s Birth

Taylor here on this beautiful Tuesday… taking a quick break from maternity leave to show you some of my favorite pictures that Holli took during Benjamin’s birth.

Can I just encourage every expectant mother out there to consider hiring a photographer for their birth? This isn’t a cheap plug to hire Holli B, because we actually do not shoot births anymore. It is just a very strong suggestion from one passionate mother. Call me crazy, but I LOVE birth stories. I love hearing about the entire experience… how she labored, what she was feeling, what he was thinking… the emotions, the pain, the excitement, the anticipation. I. LOVE. IT. ALL. So when I was pregnant with my daughter 2.5 years ago, it was a no brainer for me to let Holli photograph it. And I was so glad I did. I LOVE watching the slideshow Holli created. I cannot count the number of times I have watched Ellie’s slideshow. So obviously we wanted Holli to come and photograph the arrival of our handsome little buddy, Benjamin. I adore these images and in the middle of the night, when I am dead tired and trying to stay awake while nursing him, I turn on the slideshow and cry almost everytime.

There is just no way to remember that day without these pictures. As I go back and watch (and rewatch and rewatch) Ben’s slideshow and even Ellie’s, I can remember what I was thinking and how I was feeling in those pictures. I remember being so ready to meet him. I remember being in pain. (I didn’t say I remember the pain, because I honestly don’t.) But I remember so much more because I am able to look at the photos and they take me back to that experience. One that I never want to forget.

So as you are planning for your little ones arrival and are shopping for cribs and strollers, I beg you to at least consider a photographer for that beautiful day. If you need some referrals, let us know, we have some fantastic photographers we can recommend.
