Columbus GA Birth Photographers | Ker-Fox Photography | Stephanie’s Birth Story

Rock. Star. Momma. Right here. I said it before, but I will say it again, Stephanie handled her long labor with such an inspirational and fierce determination, yet exuded such grace while doing so. Stephanie and her family have long been friends of our family. Not the hang out on weekends kind of close, but close…. after sharing a room with someone/anyone when their child enters this world instantly brings you closer. You share their pain, you share their excitement… you share that memory. That moment that their lives changed forever. Holy. Moly. What a moment.
Stephanie’s water was broken at 9:30am April 17th and little Will didn’t decide to grace us with his presence until 3:06am April 18th. This is the story of Stephanie’s labor and Will’s birthday. Enjoy.

    Neely, sorry so late responding. I have watched this over and over and still get emotional every time I watch it. If it weren’t for you I would not have known about birth photography and would not have these moments capturing one of the most important events of my life. I was hesitant about sharing such a personal experience so publicly but it was so beautifully done and my hope in sharing this is more expectant mothers will consider this wonderful way of preserving such a life changing event. Thank you, thank you!
