Bellingham Birth Photographer: Mace’s Beautiful Homebirth

posted in: Birth | 0

I was at the Aquatic Center enjoying an afternoon of cool water with my kids when the call came from Alyssa that her water had broke and she was in labor. I laughed when I saw the date because Alyssa had assured me that she always goes past 41 weeks and yet here she was, in labor, on her due date!

I love daylight labors especially when I get to photograph a birth in a room with big open windows like Alyssa and Steve’s home. Mace was born at home in the water surrounded by love and family. Bellingham birth photographer.

Alyssa’s husband spent the afternoon filling up the birth tub….

…while the older children came in and out of the room…mostly bored but occasionally interested in the proceedings.

Alyssa worked hard breathing through her contractions and accepting each one as they came resting in between as she could.

Homebirths are often relaxed and festive events. Alyssa’s labor was no different. We talked and laughed and enjoyed the beautiful sunshine. When dinner time rolled around Steve went to a nearby store and brought home soup, salads, and sandwiches. The kids hung out totally comfortable in their home.

As the sun set labor picked up. The room darkened our voices quieted and Alyssa focused on the work ahead of her. She listened to her body and soon was gently pushing her baby out into the world.

Lexi’s Story {Spina Bifida and Fetal Surgery}

I guarantee that if you ever have the pleasure of meeting little Alexis the first thing you will notice about her is her stunning blue eyes.

Lexi was born with spina bifida. But before that she had fetal surgery.

Lexi is a bright, beautiful, and happy baby and she really knows how to turn on the charm!

What you can’t tell when you first meet Lexi is that her parents Dane and Jahnel found out at 19 weeks that Lexi would be born with spina bifida.

Lexi was born with spina bifida. But before that she had fetal surgery.

Jahnel wrote in her caring bridge journal:

“We live in a culture of instant gratification, but when it comes to medical issues, probably the time when you would most like information as quickly and accurately as possible, you get neither. I keep reminding myself that this is normal, that everything will be ok, and that God is in control and knows exactly what is going on with our little girl and is working everything out for our good and His glory. But I’m not going to lie and tell you it’s easy, its HARD. I just want to wrap my brain around what is next, to plan my life further than one day ahead of time, but I just can’t right now.”

Lexi was born with spina bifida. But before that she had fetal surgery.

Dane and Jahnel made the decision to head to Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) and have fetal surgery.They knew this would give Lexi the best shot at a full life.

Jahnel and Lexi underwent fetal surgery when Lexi was just 24 weeks!

Lexi was born with spina bifida. But before that she had fetal surgery.
The surgery was performed by Dr. N. Scott Adzick, a true pioneer in fetal surgery.

Here is what Dane wrote on the day of her surgery:

“Today was the day that marked a new chapter in the Burgess household. A day that Jahnel and I will always remember for the rest of our days. Today was surgery day. Marked with an early morning commute to the hospital, meeting our morning cab driver who has spina bifida (coincidentally), being the first ones in the operating room and getting a surgery to help our new daughter hopefully stop her spina bifida from damaging more of her nerves even before she is born.”

The surgery was a success and the doctor was happy with the results. Lexi, a little fighter, was born ten weeks later at 34 weeks gestation.

Lexi was born with spina bifida. But before that she had fetal surgery.

Lexi’s back tells a story. A story of hope, faith, miracles and modern medicine.

Lexi was born with spina bifida. But before that she had fetal surgery.

Lexi recently celebrated her Butt Day which, in the spina bifida world, means the anniversary of her fetal surgery. Jahnel asked me to capture this with my camera and I was honored to be a part of her special day.

Lexi was born with spina bifida. But before that she had fetal surgery.

Lexi was born with spina bifida. But before that she had fetal surgery.

Lexi was born with spina bifida. But before that she had fetal surgery.

Lexi was born with spina bifida. But before that she had fetal surgery.

Alexis is so much more than a diagnosis. She is a daughter, a sister, a miracle, a little girl.

Thank you, Dane and Jahnel, for allowing me to get to know Lexi and capture these memories for you.

If you want to learn more about fetal surgery be sure and check out the documentary Twice Born.

Two years ago I had the honor of witnessing Kylee have a beautiful VBAC (vaginal birth after cesarean) with her daughter Magnolia.

Earlier this month she was at it again, working hard to birth her first son, Fenton.

Kaylee had to be induced due to high blood pressure. This was several weeks before her due date and we only just squeezed in maternity photos before her induction.

The Birth of Walter {Bellingham Birth Photography}

posted in: Birth | 1

I have been a Bellingham birth photographer since 2010.

It never, ever gets old.

Bellingham birth photographer Renee Bergeron captures the beauty of birth.

I was shopping at Walmart when I got the text that Amy was in labor and things were moving fast.

I finished paying for my purchases and headed home to grab my bag.

I always have it packed and ready to go by 38 weeks, so it was a quick trip home.

Bellingham birth photographer Renee Bergeron captures the beauty of birth.

I love shooting births at Birth Roots Birth Center. The rooms are spacious and full of natural light. I was hoping for a daytime birth so I could take advantage of the beautiful lighting.

Amy was already working hard when I arrived.

She was settled in the birth tub, comfortable and in her zone.

Amy’s baby was posterior which meant pushing took a lot longer than and was much harder than during many births.

But she did it!

Playing with Shadows and Light

Playing with Shadows and Light.

When taking photos I love playing with light. Light and shadows. Low-light.

I was at my parents’ house recently and noticed the sun shining in through the blinds leaving strips of sunlight across the carpet. I was watching the light and wanted to do something, anything with them.

I took a few photos but didn’t love what I ended up with.

Sometimes playing with shadows and light can create magic!

ISO 500, SS 1/125, AP 5.6

For one thing, the glare off of my parents’ TV was distracting, especially with the white wall. I knew I needed something different. I saw the potential in the light but didn’t like what I what I ended up with.  Sometimes playing with shadows and light can create magic!

ISO 100, SS 1/125, AP 4.0

I called over my younger son, Apollo. I liked the way the light fell across his face gently curving. But the TV and glare was still an issue.

Apollo had his g-tube removed in November. He ended up with a terrible staph infection and it has just recently healed over. I have been wanting to get a good photo of the scar and was inspired by the light. I asked Apollo to removed his shirt and got this shot. I didn’t like it at all. Not only were the stripes distracting but one fell directly over his scar.

Sometimes playing with shadows and light can create magic!

ISO 320, SS 1/125, AP 4.0

I asked Apollo to turn around so I could get photos of the scars on his back. I wasn’t happy with this image either. You can clearly see one of his scars below his shoulder bone…but the second scar isn’t even visible.

At this point, a cloud moved in front of the sun and the stripes disappeared as if someone had flicked a switch.

Sometimes playing with shadows and light can create magic!

ISO 320, SS 1/125, AP 4.0

Then I took this.

This is the image straight out of camera. No editing. I went home knowing this was the image I had been wanting to create.

Sometimes playing with shadows and light can create magic!

I converted the image to black and white using my usual method. I took the photo into Photoshop and darkened the background slightly.

To me, this image is magic.

It is exactly what I was hoping for.

Baby Owen {Bellingham Newborn Photographer}

posted in: Newborns | 0

Being a newborn photographer his almost as fun as being a birth photographer! Most clients contact me to schedule their newborn session while they are still pregnant. This means I still spend weeks on pin and needles waiting for my tiniest clients to be born.

Baby Owen was an absolute dream! His mama nursed him while I set up for his session. Once he was handed over, he modeled for me like he’d been doing it all of his life. He was squishy, snuggly and smiley. What more could you ask for in a sweet newborn baby?

I had so much fun at his session!

Birth of a Rainbow Baby {Asa}

posted in: Birth | 2

Ten months ago a very special little boy was born. His name was Matthew, he had Trisomy 18 and he was stillborn.

I had the honor of photographing Matthew’s birth. Jessica and Jon showed such amazing strength and courage as they walked through a difficult, complicated pregnancy and birth. I will never forget the moment Jon held Mathew in his arms and looked up at his parents and said, “We saw this through to the end. We have no regrets”.

Jessica got pregnant quickly after Matthew’s birth. Prenatal testing showed this baby, also a boy, was healthy and strong! To say I was excited about photographing this birth would be an understatement.

Rainbow baby, Asa's beautiful birth center birth. Bellingham birth.

Jessica’s labor with Matthew was long and hard. Her labor with Asa was much shorter and she handled the contractions amazingly! When I arrived she was at 8 centimeters and still laughing and joking between contractions.
