Labor Love

ElenaSmall-10 Possibly one of my favorite labor photos of all time... this couple worked SO hard for so long to welcome their sweet baby into the world. She is absolutely heroic and he is the sweetest, kindest, most loving support. I'm glad I was able to quietly capture this moment for them...

Side note, this also confirmed for me that I really, really prefer to photograph births without flash! As a laboring mom I didn't really notice or care about the flash, but as a photographer I HATE feeling like I'm intruding into that quiet labor space with the flashing light. Whenever possible I am sticking with the ambient lighting, though that does mean more grain. 🙂
