Top 10 Favorite Shots for a C-section Birth

#1 Image

I prefer to arrive about 2 hours before the c-section is scheduled so that I can capture all the excitement before the new baby arrives.

Dad preparing to go back is so much fun!  They are excited and anxious and offer great moments for your to capture.

Mom almost always goes back before Dad or Doula.  I love to get those quiet moments of waiting.


#4 Image

While waiting for the baby to arrive, mom is usually overwhelmed with all different emotions... tears, joy, laughter.  They are all worth documenting.

Nothing is more awesome that the moment between two worlds.

Mom is usually the last to see her new baby.  So when he is placed on her chest for the first time, be sure to be there!


#7 Image

Mom misses all of the baby exams.  Be sure to document those moments for her that she is sure to miss.


#8 Image

Baby will usually start opening his eyes and becoming aware of mom and dad.  This moment is so beautiful!


#9 Image

When mom is being moved to recovery, I try to sneak a moment in the waiting room.  The tension is thick, but it leaves opportunities for beautiful images to come out of it.

Even if it means waiting around til mom is out of recovery, capturing the first meeting of a new big brother or sister is so much fun.  I especially love when siblings gaze into the bassinet.
