I LOVE shooting birth sessions. I am always reminded of how fragile and perfectly beautiful this amazing miracle is each and every time I shoot a session. Nothing is to be taken lightly. I arrive early and I stay late. I don’t want to miss a thing. I typically bring work to do just in case it is a long day and it gives me an excuse to stay behind the scenes and observe the happenings without really being noticed. Birth Sessions at Christ Hospital are my favorite because they have these amazing gluten free brownies in the cafe downstairs. I do need to avoid Christ Hospital for a while now, however. As far as my birth sessions go, I do not share the session in it’s entirety as I think it is a very private and intimate session worthy of being a treasured moment for the family in which I am servicing. If they decide to share it, that is up to them. I do share some of my favorite shots and with captions, so here you go…
If you would like for me to do a birth session for you or someone you know, please contact my assistant, Cassie a Cassie@kimkruer.com. It is a very special session. Hospital Birth Sessions come with an 8×8 book telling the birth story. Packages are customized to meet your individual needs. xxoo
I love telling a story. A grandmother meets her granddaughter for the first time and in the back…a mother congratulates her “baby,” after she has given birth.
Cell Phones. For a while I really did not like cell shots when I was trying to beautifully capture the story. Now. I realize this is the story. Sometimes. Love it. Proud grandfather capturing a proud grandmother.
Ahhhh…An Aunt and an Uncle meeting their brand new, just born niece for the very first time. How sweet is this? How LUCKY am I to capture stuff like this????
A Close Look…another favorite from the session. A father and his daughter begin that very special bond.
I wonder what he is thinking. I am thinking…remember this very moment. The years will pass by very quickly. Embrace and treasure each and every moment. Well. Almost each and every moment. There will be a few moments that won’t be what you signed up for, but overall, it’s a wonderful life.
I could do a series on the faces of newborns. Love their expressions.
It was very difficult to get even one shot of this adorable baby alone because everyone was so excited and patiently waiting their turn to hold her. I absolutely love her hair. I love her long fingers and her adorable feet. I love her cute lips and adorable nose. She is perfect.
A very happy grandfather!
One of my favorite shots of this session. A picture tells so much. Looks to me like this grandmother is very relieved, and thankful that her granddaughter has arrived and her daughter is doing well. Prayers have been answered.
