This fall I had so much fun taking maternity photos for one of my best friends and fellow photographer, Mary. We both really hoped it would work out that I could photograph the birth too, but since she and Jay live in Washintgon D.C., and since the baby was due over the holidays, we just weren’t sure if it would work out!
But, thankfully, I was home in Pittsburgh when Mary called me at 3:30am on January 9th and said “today’s the day!” So, I hopped in my car and made it there in plenty of time to be with Mary and Jay through this wonderful process. I must say, being part of a good friend’s birth is a very emotional, beautiful thing. And, I am so very grateful to have had this experience.
Here are a few photos from Harriet’s birth story.
