Charlie’s birth – My first (and probably last) birth session.


So very early hours of this morning, after what seems like an eternity of waiting by the phone. I raced down to Royal Preston Hospital, camera gear ready and I shot my very first birth. Birth is a perculiar thing, often the only birth we’ll witness is with our own children – unless your me who was out cold for both! – but standing back and watching this life changing event unfold for someone else is the most incredible experience. Even more so when the mother to be is my beautiful, brave sister. And this fresh newborn is my tiny little niece! I created a full album from this session, though only these few images will make it on to the internet -for obvious reasons! It was after all a very personal experience.
