What you are about to see is the story of a miracle baby. Mom was on bedrest for much of her pregnancy and faced continual obstacles to bring Noah to term. Hers was a scheduled c-section that we had all perfectly planned out for me to fly into Joburg (from Cape Town) the night before. We still had a week to go when around 4 am I got the call that her water broke. I have never gotten on a flight so fast. I was in the air by 6:30 I believe. While I arrived there in record time, I did miss his moment of birth but not by much. So I spent the day with them documenting all these beautiful moments. We felt like old friends. Even without being present in theater, you can see this is about the birth day and all the memories it holds. A few of the shot in theater were from Dad’s phone.
Noah’s parents were given my services as a gift. Incredible, right?!? Did you know you can hire me for a friend or a group can pitch in together and give it as a gift? Talk about a unique gift not to be forgotten. In either Cape Town or Johannesburg, contact me for availability.
Birth Story shared with family permission as is modest/family friendly, as always. Noah’s father had this to say: “It’s unbelievable. Thank you so much for everything. It’s what we expected and so much more.” And his mother:
We would just like to once again say a heart felt thank you for capturing the most important day in our lives. We so often watch Noah’s slideshow, and each time it evokes overwhelming emotion in us. It was such a pleasure having you there. It truly felt like you where a life long friend that had joined us to share in the occasion. When we first received the photos, I caught myself thinking “why is Marysol not in any of the pictures”, and then I remembered… Thank you for all the personal touches you truly make us feel special over and over.
