There is something so magical about meeting your first baby. You're excited and in love, but you really have no idea what you're in for. There's so much uncertainty. "How am I supposed to wash baby clothes?" "What do contractions feel like?" "When should I leave for the hospital?" "How much crying is normal?" It's ALL so new. And I think that's why it's so overwhelming and incredible. You'll get to feel all these emotions when you watch Oli's birth story unfold below.
Mom requested an amazing 90's playlist during labor (forget about calming classical music!) When she was told she could begin pushing, Dad immediately turned on Push It by Salt N Pepa, which left us all giggling. We laughed, we danced, we sang. And Olivander was born into a room full of love and support.
My favorite part of birth photography is putting the photos together with video into a fusion slideshow. Listen to how excited Mom is! You'll definitely want to watch this slide show. It's one of my favorites.
