A few weeks ago I had the incredible experience in witnessing and documenting a live birth. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience and couple to work with. Being it was the first birth I had ever witnessed, I was a little nervous. The fear of passing out crossed by mind (which, by the way did not happen). I’ve experienced some pretty amazing things this last year – living in Antarctica, watching penguins dance in and out of the ocean, holding a koala, photographing a wedding in China (have been some of the highlights), but witnessing the miracle of life was absolutely one of the most moving experiences. After many hours little Eloise decided to make her grand entrance to this world at 12:18 p.m on June 28th. Such a precious gift she is. Much love to little Eloise and her loving family.
