The birth of Layla Noelle | CT Birth Photographer

I had the honor of being invited into the delivery room as my best friend gave birth to her little girl.  It was my first time as a CT birth photographer and I can’t wait to do another! It was such an incredible experience that I can’t even begin to describe.  First of all, Besa is a rock star!  Let me tell you, giving birth is NOT easy and Besa did AMAZING!  When I first got the call at 4am that her water had broke I was so excited but incredibly nervous.  Besides my own children’s birth I hadn’t witnessed another birth, never mind photograph one!  I got out of bed and made sure my camera was all charged and cards were formatted.  I packed some food and waited.  And waited.  And waited.  Did some dishes.  Put laundry away.  Vacuumed the house.  Waited some more.  Wait a second, who is in labor here?  I had my phone charging and when I went to check on it I had a text that she was 5cm and it was time for me to get there.  I called my mother-in-law to come over to watch my kids and off I went.

At our local hospital you are not allowed to photograph during the actual delivery but they allowed me to photograph for a few pushes at the beginning and as soon as she was born the camera was allowed back out.  I would love to photograph more births so if you have a friend that you think would be interested please share this post or send them to my FB page!

And now onto the birth story of Layla Noelle.

Besa and Steve – thank you both so much from the bottom of my whole heart for allowing me to share this special moment with you.  Enjoy your new life as a family of four!  XOXO
