Max.

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.

  1. Your photos make me cry, Kate! Birth is such a fleeting experience of ecstasy, but your photos capture it beautifully.

  2. When I see photos like this and watch the clip it makes me want to have more babies, and I’ve already had 4! I don’t my husband would be in happy to hear me say that, but I really really wish I had done this with one of my children. Sad thing is 3 of them were via c-section and all of them had complications so it isn’t really possibly to have anymore or safe. Anyway, I just wanted to say you have an AMAZING gift keep up the good work.
