Isla | Seattle Birth Photographer

As a Seattle birth photographer, there’s often an immense flood of emotions filling me to the brim when I witness the entrance of a new little person into this world.  A surefire way to squeeze a few tears out of me is to see a mama labor and deliver with such a strong partner by her side.  He was her breath, and her rock, and stood calm at every minute.

The lovely ladies at the Puget Sound Birth Center  in Kirkland were wonderful and warm with their tender care and expertise.  Just a day earlier, this couple made the sudden decision to follow their hearts and switch their birth from the care of a hospital , where they previously delivered their other 2 children, to this quiet and unassuming birth center.  Here you can read, in her own words, the story of this mama’s journey to having her much loved and longed for, 3rd baby.

The Birth of Addison | Seattle Birth Photographer

Being a professional Birth photographer in Seattle is exhilarating.  It’s full of ups and downs, and beautiful emotions.  Something even a bit more incredible, is watching a woman fight through her fears to successfully give birth vaginally after having a previous cesarean – called a VBAC in the birthing community.

As a Seattle birth photographer, I am constantly in awe over the job that I have, especially because of all the new people I am able to meet.  Some of these people are brand new to this world, and others are a bit more seasoned.  One of the lovely people I met during this birth is a wonderful doula, Ildi Sebestyen.  It was a joy to work with her and to witness the power of such a kind and wonderful soul, and I hope to have the pleasure of working alongside her again in the very near future.  She was such a tremendous support for this laboring mama, and a huge aid in her success.

Little miss Addison was born to an incredibly strong mother, and welcomed by her happy father, and new big brother.
