My phone rang at exactly 3:00am last Wednesday morning. Mel was finally in labour! I jumped out of bed and grabbed my camera gear. I couldn’t anticipate how completely special the next 8 hours would be for me. To witness a woman experiencing childbirth for the very first time, was something which I will never ever forget. Mel showed a strength and calmness which I thought only came with experience, and Ryan’s love and support for his wife was unwavering.
Welcome sweet little Max. x
I am so grateful to Mel and Ryan for allowing me to share these images of Max’s incredible birth with you all. It was such a beautiful calm birth, and this slideshow hardly even does it justice.
