Isaiah | Leesburg VA | Birth Photographer

I can’t tell you how amazing it was to be able to witness and capture Isaiah’s birth! Kristen is a fellow photographer in the NOVA area, and I was so flattered that she trusted me to shoot her birth and newborn photos. From the moment I arrived until I left was just a little over 3 and a half hours, which was my shortest length of time spent at a birth EVER! Kristen labored so beautifully, so its no wonder these are some of my new favorites! What is also particularly special was this birth was my first ever captured at a birthing center, specifically the Natural Birthing Inn at INOVA Loudon Hospital. Isaiah was only the seventh baby to be born there, how cool!

    Absolutely beautiful! I hired a birth photographer for the birth of my daughter – who is now 15 months old, and I will always be so grateful to her for capturing that moment. Y’all are so talented (and dedicated!). Thank you so much for gifting such a wonderful thing to a mother.

    P.S. – let her know that she looks freaking amazing for being in labor. #thatisall!
