A Natural Hospital Birth - Fort Lauderdale Birth Photographer

*The Sophia Co is the brand new and improved version of Three Plus Photography. This blog post has been imported from my previous blog and may contain my old watermark on the images.

Tory and Heather were the last birth story clients I took on before leaving for my extended trip to Brazil.

What impressed me the most when we first met, was Heather's determination to have a natural birth. This determination was fueled by her complete trust in her body and in her husband - who proved to be a solid rock during her laboring hours.

Fast-forward a few months, and baby Cy was still very comfy inside his mama. An induction was scheduled and things flowed very smoothly. Heather labored hard. Her reward was a gorgeous 8lb 4 oz baby boy, full of vernix and that latched on right away!

It was an honor to see these 2 awesome people become parents and go through this experience together - and to see their faces looking at each other while looking at baby Cy!

Thank you so much Tory and Heather, for letting me document Cy's beautiful birth story. I loved every minute of it!
