Michelle is one of my closest friends, we met while our husbands were in school together. We experienced so much side by side, supporting our husbands through a doctorate program, being pregnant for the first time, welcoming our first baby girls together, moving. I’ve leaned on Michelle and Spencer on more than one occasion for support, whether it was an afternoon tea and cry/laugh fest, or our weekly “family dinners”, the list goes on and on.
It must have been something in the water, because all of our closest friends have had baby girls, and now, a second set of baby girls has come along! We just had to laugh when the Smids announced that they were having another girl, this was the forth girl this year, born to our school “family”.
I was so honoured when they asked me to be part of their birthing experience, though birth photography. I can’t thank them enough for trusting me to capture such an amazing moment in their lives. Many people feel a little nervous about birth photography, and Spencer felt a bit uneasy about the whole thing. But thankfully they sat down and watched our birth video, and his worries were put to rest.
I’ll leave the images to tell the story, but the best moment of the whole day, was when Jane was handed to Michelle, and she whispered
” I’ve waited so long for you”
Jane, you are so, so loved
Take 4 minutes and watch the video.. So much love
