I’m proud to present another birth story Jenny shot recently. And…well, just watch.
Something about life coming into this world transcends words. Enjoy!

Ladies and gentlemen, let’s welcome a wonderful blog post from my lovely wife, Jenny. I’m the one usually doing the posting at Solar Photographers, so it’s nice to have hers for a change…now, Jenny, on Lila’s birth.
I’ve been wanting to document a birth for quite some time. It’s actually a bucket list item for me… well, not anymore! A couple weeks ago, I headed to the hospital to document Lila’s birth story.
I feel so blessed to have been a part of this day. I’ve given birth three times, but it’s totally different to be on the other side. It was so amazing to watch Rosemary, with Jarot by her side, labor for hours and then deliver this beautiful, amazing new life! And the smiles on their other kids as they got to hold Lila for the first time. It was powerful.
Birth stories are by far the hardest to put into words. You witness so many JOYFUL moments in a short amount of time. There’s a certain FEELING floating in the air around the delivery room…one of those, you had to be there feelings. I’ll let the “mom approved” pictures tell the story better than my words ever could…
Note: I was uber nervous because mom happens to be an awesome wedding photographer herself.
I’m so thankful for the ability to document real, honest, life & emotions. Enjoy!
On Christmas morning, Canaan was born. While mom was only in labor for a short (extremely short) time, and I missed the actual birth by 20 minutes, I saw many beautiful “firsts” in Canaan’s life. This is a glimpse into the first few hours of a beautiful baby boy’s life.
