So I recently revamped my entire website and lost a lot of blogs in the process so today I am sharing with you photos from a birthing session I did with Danwine & Craig Liebenberg and their perfect little angel, Mia.
She was born at 13h11 on 17th September 2017 at Panorama Medi-Clinic, Cape Town.
And my goodness is she happy little lady.
Stats on baby Mia:
50.05 centimeters long
I was so honoured to be with Danwine & Craig on the day of their child's birth. There really aren't very many things that are as beautiful as bringing another life into the world.
“She is beautiful. My little girl is finally here. I’m officially a mommy of 2,” says Danwine about the first time she saw the baby.
“My mother in law left for PE at 38 weeks. I cried because I didn’t want to have my baby without her here in CT. Mia waited for her granny, the morning they left to come back to CT was the morning I went into labour. I had mild contractions for a about a week prior to going into full labour. However on Sunday at about 3ish I could feel they were different. They were a lot more painful and I couldn’t sleep through them anymore. I eventually got up at about 4h30 to start walking around to better handle the pain. That is when my water broke. We had to then organize a babysitter for my first born before making our way to the hospital.,” said Danwine.
The love in that room on 17th September 2017 was truly overwhelming. I know that baby Mia and her parents have a lot more where that came from, too. I hope they keep me up to date with what's happening in their lives!
Have you thought about having your birth photographed, but aren't sure if it's for you? This is what Danwine had to say about our session:
To be honest at times forgot my photographer was there; which is perfect. She didn’t over power the birth nor distract us from it. The pics turned out amazing and captured memories I wouldn’t have been able to see myself. As a mommy laying on the theatre table I missed out a lot, but the pics allow me to be part of those memories.
Go for it, it’s worth it. It will capture memories you will long after forget. Speak to your photographer, if you uncomfortable showing certain things.
Thanks for stopping by!
