Meeting this family was such a blast. We had great chats on the phone, and then a really nice coffee together – dad, mom and 11 year old big brother. That’s one of my favorite parts of a birth story. I get to know them a little, and experience the anticipation and excitement to meet the newest member of their family, and hear about all the preparations, hopes, fears and joys. It was especially fun hearing just how this big brother, 11 years old than his little sister, was planning on being there for her. Just awesome.
Baby’s arrival at MassGeneral Hospital in Boston, MA (named #1 hospital in the nation – aren’t we so blessed!?) was only 3 days past her due date, and her mom was so ready to meet her! She had gentle beginnings and a fantastic team to care for them all. Her Birth Day, Friday March 4, 2016, was chilly with a touch of snow. Her mama was a real warrior, laboring and birthing her so beautifully!
Being there to witness a birth is always an incredible experience. I’m so thankful for the trust these families place in me, and for what it brings to my life to be able to share these times with them!
I’ve shared some photos from the birth, but obviously have been picky about which ones I share to protect my client’s privacy 🙂
Being there the next day to watch her meet her brother and grandparents was such a beautiful thing! SO much love in this precious family! She is truly going to be treasured…
“Our experience with Caryn could not have exceeded our expectations more. She is extremely professional, patient and kind. Every concern or question we had was always met with respect and support. She is extremely thoughtful about how she captures your experience, and we could not have been happier with the outcome. Caryn does amazing work and commits whole heartedly to making sure what you envision is what you get. We could not have had a better experience before, during and after working with her. We have beautiful photos that we are able to share with family and friends and they are well worth the investment to capture some of the most life changing moments and incredible journey your family goes through.”
Thank you, C Family, for everything! I hope you love every moment in your photos for many years to come <3
