This was the first birth I’ve photographed. It was very quick and an awesome starting place for me. I got to Hallie’s house about 45 minutes after she called saying that she she was in labor. Her midwife arrived around 10 minutes after I did and checked her. Hallie was already 9 centimeters! She was pushing pretty quickly after that and little Petra was born with no complications. I was there for a total of maybe 3.5 hours. It was totally amazing and I can’t wait to photograph more!
Still smiling at 9 centimeters!
