Few weeks ago I had the honor of meeting a little King named Eric after his Dad.
His mom Terry Ann had hired me on the fly three weeks before her EDD. I instantly loved her voice when speaking to her over the phone and I admire the fact that she had so much trust in the timing of her birth and was not worried about the possibility to having to deal with my back up to be at her birth instead of me, since I was meant to leave town few days after her due date.
Sure enough after years of praying and hoping their dreams would come true; after trusting and going with the flow and accepting the vulnerability that comes with welcoming a child in this world, their Rainbow baby arrived punctual like a Swiss clock on his due date.
I was honored to serve this Santa Monica family as Doula and Birth Photographer, which is the perfect combo in my opinion when it comes to celebrating the birth of a baby.
Terri Ann and Eric gave me permission to share the slide show of few images they selected from their birth. I invite you to pay attention particularly to the moment of the actual birth and notice how Terry Ann is smiling as if she had just left the spa! All caught on camera!
