Last Friday I spent the day photographing my very first birth. While all births are special, this birth was extra special! I feel so blessed to have witnessed the arrival of Izabelle, a much longed-for daughter for Selena and Nathan. It has been a heartbreaking journey for Selena and Nathan, one that has spanned 7 years, many unsuccessful IVF attempts and the loss of three precious babies. It was just after the birth of their third baby that I met Selena and Nathan when I photographed their beautiful son Ashley.
After so much heartache Selena’s dear friend Kathy offered them the greatest gift of all; the gift of carrying their baby. So last Friday two very deserving people finally became parents and I feel very blessed to have been allowed to share in this part of their journey. However, this is not my story to tell so I will just share with you my documentation of their day and say:
“Welcome to the world, beautiful Izabelle. You are your Mummy and Daddy’s happily ever after”.
Take a peek at this slideshow, it documents their day perfectly.
