On Her Way to Be Weighed

Sometimes I capture images that aren't technically ideal, due to movement or lighting or timing. The midwife had just scooped up the baby from the bed and was turning and walking past me to take the little girl to the scale. I tried to snap a quick capture of her face as they turned, and it wasn't perfect - but her expression just made me laugh! Birth photography isn't portraiture - there's no posing, it's fast and candid and "lifestyle" pictures. But even when the image may not be exactly what we wanted, we still are able to tell such a fun story from the moments we do capture.
