Indie Willow arrived earthside at 2:04pm on a beautiful Tuesday afternoon. Her entrance was very quick but I believe thats because she knew the amount of love that was waiting for her. A surprise gender, Mum and Dad were overcome with emotion to meet their daughter.
Here is a little part of her birth story...
It was such an incredible experience witnessing the birth of not just one but two children for this beautiful family. Being a Birth Photographer I am capturing some of the most precious moments in a Childs life. Their first breath, their first cry, the first time they open their eyes. The emotion from Mum and Dad when they see their baby for the very first time and the moment they hold them for that very first time are just so special and to provide that memory captured forever is why I love what I do.
The Day after Indie's birth I came back up to Mater Mothers in Brisbane to capture her big brothers meeting her for the very first time. And what a moment that was! They brought in cards that they had made for her and just instantly fell in love with their tiny sister.
When I first arrived mum was sitting in the afternoon light soaking up all that newborn goodness. Indie was so sleepy and content she wasn't waking for anyone. Not long after the boys arrived with Dad and were so happy to be reunited with Mum but more so to finally meet this little person they have patiently waited 9 months for.
With this gorgeous family all together and soaking up the family of 5 life, it was time for me to head home. Capturing this important milestone for them was something I felt so honoured to do. As I walked the corridors of the hospital I reminisced about Indie's birth and the incredible strength and courage her Mumma had. I witness the most amazing moments life has to offer and Im so proud to be a Birth Photographer.
