Welcome to the world, little Sybil ~ Austin TX newborn photographer

I debated putting up this post because birth photography is not a service I plan to offer regularly, but I did make an exception to photograph the birth of a good friend's second child, a daughter, and I am so glad that I did. Being there and capturing this momentous life event truly did change me and my perspectives and impacted me in a very real way - I think I slept for about two days straight after this birth, both because it occurred overnight and because it was one of the most emotional things I've ever experienced. My time as a mother has not yet come, but I can only imagine how magnified the birth experience is for the actual parents, and if the fatigue I, myself, felt afterwards is any indication of how new parents feel, well... CRAP. ;)

Here are just a few of my favorites from the birth of little Mina Sybil, or "Sybi." Thank you again, Murray Family, for the incredible honor of being one of those present at your delivery.
