*UPDATE: Read Alicia’s testimonial here!
I went to bed on the evening of Friday May 25th with a bit of a hunch. I was prepared for the birth of baby Rohan to happen at any time, but something about this evening specifically had me preparing my camera gear and charging my batteries in anticipation of getting the call. At approximately 1:30am I received a text from Alicia (the mama-to-be) letting me know that she was starting to have contractions. By about 4:30am on May 26th her sister had called to let me know that it was time for me to come. I flew out the door as fast as I could, drove to the Fagan home as quickly as possible, and much to my excitement, baby Rohan was born at 5:05am. And I can honestly say that even hours after his birth I had goosebumps. Alicia exuded strength, peace and confidence. Truly an inspiration. With the help of her lovely midwives Paula and Sarah from Ottawa South Midwives, she brought baby Rohan into the world in a way that was so very natural and beautiful. Just being there, watching them coach and encourage her brought a sense of peace and calmness over everyone.
I am very excited to announce that Birth Photography is something that I will be offering ongoing! I plan to take on a limited number of sessions per year and within the next week or so I will be updating the Danielle Lynn Photography website to include information about hiring me as your Ottawa birth photographer, pricing info and how to reach me to in order to discuss the possibility of having your own home or hospital birth professionally and tastefully photographed. I also plan to offer an introductory pricing for the first two clients to contact me about this opportunity so if this is something you’ve been considering, please do not wait to get in touch!
Alicia, Shane, Big Bother Elijah – it was an absolute pleasure having the opportunity to photograph this amazing and monumental time in your lives. I wish you all the best as a family of four and I sincerely hope I have the opportunity to photograph your beautiful family again in the future.
