Thirteen days ago I was lucky enough to watch as my nephew entered the world. My sister, Lana, asked me to photograph her birth and it was quite a powerful experience. Baby Luca was happy inside the womb and was in no rush to come out so twelve days after his due date, he was induced. Though she was given pitocin to induce labor, Lana chose not to have an epidural or any pain medication which made for some expressive and powerful images. The experience was such a mix of emotions as a spectator but it was an incredible experience and I am so thankful to have been there. Here is a link to a slideshow I created of Lana’s delivery of my nephew, baby Luca: SLIDESHOW. And here are just a few of my favorite images from the day:
