So Michelle and I found out we were pregnant around the same time. During our pregnancy Michelle and I came up with a plan. The plan was for me to do her birth photography and for him not to come on one of my weddings that I had already booked. Haha. We left it in God’s hands- if I was meant to be there, I would be there. We would be OK with it if not. And I gave it my all when the day came and I was a Houston Baby and Birth Photographer for the day!
It’s also very important to note, Michelle entrusted this very special task to me.. knowing I had literally ZERO experience being a Houston Baby and Birth Photographer. Like always, I felt the pressure, for sure. I know that moments like these (very much like weddings) cannot be faked. They cannot be redone, and they are the BIG moments. Moments that are most important in a lifetime. SO, I take my role very seriously.
It is also very important to note, that my style of photography is best when captured raw, unposed, and 100% candid. I am also a bit of a storyteller when it comes to photography. I like the details, I like the small moments, I like the emotion behind a photograph. I have found that that’s when my best work is displayed. And if you’ve ever been through labor, you know that it cannot be faked and the emotions behind it cannot be staged. So being a Houston Baby and Birth Photographer for the day was incredible.
Anywho, this is the Mallory’s start of their story with Isaiah. Because this session moved me so incredibly much (I can’t even look at the pictures without crying), I am now offering birth photography and would love to exclusively offer this someday (a girl can dream, right?!)!
