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.

A Speedy Arrival | Seattle Birth Photographer

Hospital Birth Photo by Erin DuPree a Seattle Birth Photographer

As a Seattle birth photographer, I do my absolute best to ensure my timely arrival during your labor.  Occasionally, though, a birth happens SO fast, that I can’t make it in time!  This was the case for the speedy arrival of this little guy–within one hour of arriving at the hospital.  This super fast birth surprised everyone.  The first photo in this gallery is the first photo I took as I walked in the door–5 minutes after his birth.  I’m so happy I was able to capture these first sweet moments for this beautiful family, and be there the next day while he was introduced to his big brother.

 

Mommies Really Do Glow | Redmond WA Maternity Photographer

Maternity couple photo session with Seattle Maternity Photographer

As a Redmond WA maternity photographer, I want to make sure that each woman who comes to me feels beautiful when looking at her photographs.  You may not be too happy with your body while it’s changing so drastically, but my job is to show the beauty that is evident to everyone around you.

It’s true–you really do glow when you’re pregnant.  There’s a luminescence to your skin, and you often walk around with a tiny hint of a secret smile on your lips, long before you start to show your secret to the world.

For Erin, it really shows through the photos from her Snoqualmie maternity session.   We waded in a creek near Fall City, WA and got a bit wet, and then ended the evening in Snoqualmie while watching a herd of elk march across an open field.  It was the perfect summer maternity session, and it was a magical ending to a beautiful season.

Being a Redmond WA birth photographer is also a true blessing, and I never get tired (well, actually I get exhausted) of the stories I get to watch unfold, knowing that I am one of the very first to meet a brand new person.  In just a few short weeks, I’ll have the honor to be present during the birth of Erin’s first child.
