Story Behind the Photo | Denton Birth Photography

I was blown away at how much this hospital went out of their way to welcome me into the OR - from holding off on starting the cesarean to giving me free access to shoot, they were wonderful. As you can see in this photo I'm by the mom's feet, not an area they generally let you wander during surgery! As the baby was being born the anesthesiologist dropped the screen and encouraged me to stand up so that (at mom's request) I could photograph the actual moment of birth and the baby's first stretch and yell! It was a beautiful experience.
