Ellie’s Birth

Little Ellie came into this world by a planned cesarean birth. Her parents were fabulous advocates for what they wanted with the surgery. Thanks to the wonderful staff at St. Mark’s hospital, they were able to have the support and help they needed for this birth! I returned a few days later to get some photos of the new family in their home.

I love that you were able to capture a c-section! I think my favorites are the one were the doctor is holding her up right after she came out, pure joy on that face and the one were baby is laying on Mama’s chest. These are so great, Andrea!

These are all so beautiful!!! I love how well you documented everything with the family afterwards, too!

I love documented births. You do an incredible job.
I had my last birth (also a c/s) photographed, and was SO grateful I had images of that event preserved for me, and going into placed I couldn’t while on the operating table. It was a big gift to me, and I’m sure Ellie’s mom feels the same way.
