Meet princess Mayah Elaine! Mayah was born to her proud, loving parents Tuesday May, 10th 2011, at home.I had the honor of photographing her birth ( how did I get so lucky?). Mayah gave us a bit of a scare and made quite the dramatic entrance! She had some trouble breathing at first, but from what I understand she is doing fine now and her Mommy and Daddy get to take her home from the hospital soon. Praise the Lord!
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
Love this verse. I know Mayah was created by God for a reason, as we all are and I cannot wait to see what He will do in this special little girl's life.
Mayah's birth was the first one I have photographed, as kind of a trial run. Birth photography is definitely something I want to offer but I still need to work out the details of how many hours to offer, what to charge, how many I can take on a month etc. I will be posting a new page on my blog once I figure out the details. I'm so excited about this, I love being at births and if I could actually do it as part of my job? Well that'd be very cool. :)
