I can’t believe that Little Bear is already 2 months old, time flies when you are having fun! I am treasuring every moment as he is growing so fast. There are times were I feel like I already forget what he looked like when he was born. I am lucky to have the most amazing photographs from Little Bears birth day courtesy of Carrie Duncan from Four Bees Photography.

I told you back in November my reasons to have a birth photographer present at Little Bear’s Birth, and even though I was excited about the process it did not mean I was not nervous too. Would I feel like the labour & delivery room was too crowded or noisy? Would the photos be done in such a manner that I would be willing to share them with my family and friends? How would I look in the photographs? I was going to be in labour and giving birth after all, not the most glamorous of times.
Now having gone through the experience it can be summed up into one word… BEAUTIFUL. Carrie captured the magic of Little Bear’s birth perfectly. From the photographs showing the strength and support that Hubs offered to me during contractions to discretely documenting those quiet peaceful moments between them. There are no words to describe the magic that you feel when you get to meet your child for the first time. I think the look on Hubs face says it all. In those first moments of awe and joy Hubs and I were able to just engrossed in meeting Little Bear and not be burdened by taking our own photographs.
During the labour and delivery you would have never even known Carrie was in the room. She was unobtrusive as she worked, respectful of my need for quiet, and was able to get great shots even in low light conditions even when I asked for the lights to be dimmed and the blinds closed. Her talent in capturing the emotions in the room in each and every photograph is truly amazing.I am so happy with the decision to have Carrie as our birth photographer for Little Bears arrival. Not only will I treasure these photos forever, but I as able to share the experience with people who were not actually in the delivery room with us, like my mother and sister.
