Baby Pratt’s Birthstory

I rushed over to the nurses station. “I’m here to photograph Sharon Johnson’s birth!” They pointed the room out to me. I rushed in. Sharon was in the middle of a painful contraction. For a split second I paused. I was here, witnessing, documenting something amazing. I looked at her face, tired, in pain, but in so much control. I flashed back to Dane’s birth. I remembered so well that feeling, each contraction, every pain.

Sharon was incredible. She had this way of making everyone feel ok about the situation. In between the contractions, her eyes lit up and her words eased us all.

Then the whole room filled up to the brim with an emotion that was so intense and beautiful. My eyes swelled up. A love and a bond that is the strongest in the world could be felt at that moment. I watched the baby take his first breath in life, I watched him open his eyes for the first time and it was nothing less than a miracle. A new little spirit with arms reaching up the sky. I could feel that little baby, in his perfect innocence, speaking the truth of miracles to me.

The way Sharon scooped him up and brought him to her chest, like it was exactly what she was supposed to do. The glow in her face as she looked upon her babe radiated. Lusi fell instantly in love with her baby brother. Her fat little fingers reached out toward “her baby.” There was nothing in the whole world that was between her and her new little brother. She wanted to pick him up and take him home with her that very second.

What an incredible blessing to be able to photograph this birth. I hope it is the first of many more to come.

Baby Pratt was born May 9th 2013, weighing 7 pounds 6oz just three days before mothers day.
