wichita baby photographer: the warm sunny summer evening Lincoln William came into this world

Oh gosh, to say I was completely humbled when Erin (of Erin Kate Photography) asked me to consider photographing the birth of her third child would be an understatement.  Humbled and anxious.  I knew I would be completely inspired by her strength and vulnerability bringing life into this world, but I’ve previously shied away from birth photography because frankly, the logistics are a nightmare for this mama of three with zero family in town, and a hubby that can’t be my backup should I get called away in the middle of the night, in the middle of school pickup, tball practice dropoff, etc.

So when Erin ended up having a scheduled induction, and my in-laws could come and spend the entire day with my crew, our stars had aligned, and I was incredibly blessed to behind the camera when Lincoln William came earth-side.

I’m reminded after every birth story I hear, witness, experience or am told, about what an absolute miracle each child really is.

"It's a feeling."

One of the best ways I've heard my work described.

It's like a dream you can't quite get back to, but you know was so so good because when you woke up you had a smile on your face, and you keep trying desparately to remember all of the vivid details you can be present in that in-between state for just a little more  - the warmth of being together, the sounds, the laughter...the feelings.

Here's more on what our work together could be.
