I have to tell you, THIS birth that I photographed this summer was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. It was Camille's first birth and she was a trooper. She was supported by her sweet husband, Lake, and her WONDERFUL Doula, Grace Greene (www.graceinbirthing.com). Camille's labor started that evening and went on through the night and she delivered that morning, on a beautiful sunny day. Camille amazed me. I swear y'all, she was in, what seemed like, transition for hours. With the support of her husband and awesome Doula, Grace, she took one contraction at a time and was able to focus on that alone. Her doctor was incredible too. She gave Camille a "pep-talk" at the end when she started self doubting (which she had been doing - another sign of transition- and her Doula coached her through each self doubting thought). Watching Camille's team of labor/birth support was inspiring. I truly felt honored to witness and capture such an amazing miracle. I love birth and I love babies!!! :D
