Little Jude caught me a little off guard. He was due in December, and he/we had a definite caesarean birth date. His Mum sent me a message two weeks before his date, saying that her blood pressure was high and Doc wanted to deliver the next day! Whoa! What a scramble. Well, this is why, as a Birth Photographer, EVEN in the case of a planned C-section, I am on call two weeks before and two weeks after! These things happen and we need to run at the last minute. It’s the start of the rest of your lives as new parents, expect the unexpected! For sure!
Jude was delivered via a gentle caesarean, happy and super healthy, weighting a wonderful 3.4kg. Yes! 3.4 kilograms, a good few weeks before 40 weeks! Incredible. Well done Mom. What a sterling job!
Dad’s face was priceless. I am so glad that they hired me to capture this day for them. He was in awe. Totally awe-struck!
I walked out the theatre to be met by Granny and Grandpa (times two!), Aunty and Friends. I saw the relief on their faces when I told them all was (incredible) well! They could not wait to meet their new member!
Tanith and Shawn, I thank you so very much, for inviting me into one of the most intimate and precious days of your lives. I am forever changed.
