Natalia's Welcome

January 15, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

Natalia Adame was born in the Los Angeles suburb of Bellflower on January 14th, 2015. The labor was half as long as the mother's first birth and it was a welcome change! Both madre y padre were surprised by the short length of the labor. Natalia was perfectly healthy and very comfortable snuggling with her mom.

Photographing births is never easy. I don't use flash so am left to achieve the right exposures using available light. The light in the room was all over the place so I did the best that I could. Things are also happening extremely fast and you can't miss any critical moments. Above the father cuts the umbilical cord.

The last birth I photographed was in a home. This birth was at the hospital and they had a lot of rules. The nurses were not happy with my presence and I was extra careful to be unobtrusive. I was happy to photograph such sacred moments and can't wait for my next birth photography adventure.
