Baby Imogen In-Home Session {Bellingham Baby Photos}

posted in: Newborns | 0

I love, love, love it when clients book me for maternity, birth and newborn photos. To me, it feels like I am able to complete the story. It feels like the experience comes full circle for me.

As I was editing Katy’s birth photos I realized that a natural pose they had struck just before she went back for her c-section, was nearly identical to one I took at their maternity session. When I showed Katy the two photos side by side, she agreed that we needed to recreate it at her newborn session.

Beautiful maternity, birth and newborn photos by Renee Bergeron of Little Earthling Photography. Bellingham baby photos.

I just love the continuity of these three photos together.

I have hands down, the best job in the world. I get to witness not just babies, but families, being born. I get to travel along with couples as their families grow and expand. I get to capture so many special moments in their journey. Sometimes you don’t see the significance of a photo until after the fact…like when you see these three images grouped together.

I loved spending time with Katy and Bob…and am looking forward to many more sessions with their family in the future. Little Imogen's parents absolutely adore her! Bellingham baby photos.

Should I Hire a Birth Photographer for my C-Section? {Imogen’s Birth}

posted in: Birth | 1

Should I Hire a Birth Photographer for my C-Section?

I have been photographing births since 2010 and sometimes I have clients wonder if they should hire a birth photographer if they are having a c-section. As a birth photographer, I am there to document your baby’s birth, no matter how the story unfolds. I have documented home births, birth center births, natural births, births with spinals, epidurals, VBACs, birth with forceps, births with vacuums and, of course, c-sections! No matter what happens, this is your baby’s birth story.

A beautiful maternity session in the woods by Bellingham maternity photographer, Renee Bergeron of Little Earthling Photography.

Now let me share with you about Katy.

Katy contacted me very early in her pregnancy. She and her husband were planning a natural birth at the birth center but placenta previa changed everything. When Katy called to tell me she was going to have to schedule a c-section I assured here that I would still document her baby’s arrival. Plans, or no plans, this was her baby’s story. We had a fantastic maternity session a few weeks before her scheduled c-section and kept in close contact about her upcoming birth plans.

On the morning of their baby’s birth, I met Katy and Bob at the hospital bright and early (actually it was dark; it was 5:30 am) and was able to capture their baby’s story from start to finish. While I wasn’t allowed in the OR, I was still able to capture their baby’s birthday in full.

During the actual surgery, I took a coffee break and waited in the waiting room until Katy and Bob were settled back in their room. Then I returned to capture Imogen’s first hours.

So to answer the original question, “Should I Hire a Birth Photographer for my C-Section?” my answer is a hearty, “yes!”

Moms often find they don’t remember the events of the day clearly due to surgery and pain meds. If you end up having a c-section, even if it wasn’t what you hoped for, it is your baby’s birth story.

Ailish’s Birth {Mt Vernon Birth Photographer}

posted in: Birth | 1

I photographed the birth of Pamela’s first daughter, back in 2015. I love it when repeat clients call and book another birth. Not only is re-hiring me an incredible honor but I love getting to know the families better.

Pamela’s first birth was long. Like all day and push for five hours long. Her baby was posterior and it was a massive task to push her out. She dilated quickly the first time around I had a feeling her second birth would go fast.Mt Vernon Birth Photographer, Renee Bergeron, captures Alilish's beautiful birth center birth.

Pamela did a great job of keeping me posted on her progress. The night before her baby’s birth she called me at midnight to let me know her water had broken. I love it when I have a bit of advanced notice, especially in this case since Pamela was giving birth at a birth center 45 minutes from my home.

I hopped out of bed, double checked my bag, and fell asleep expecting to be awakened at any moment. Just before six am Pamela called again, this time to let me know contractions had started. At 7:30 am I got the this is it call and I headed out immediately.

Pamela was obviously in active labor when I arrived. She was focused 100% on her labor experience.

Sweet little Ailish was born thirty minutes after I arrived. She needed a little bit of help to get breathing but soon pinked up and cried.

Once Ailish was settled in, Konrad left to pick up his older daughter.

Bellingham Maternity Photographer: A Maternity Session in the Woods

Katy booked me early on in her pregnancy and wanted maternity, birth and newborn photos. We chatted over coffee about what photos were most meaningful to her. Now, just a month away from her due date, we finally got to meet up for her maternity photos. I suggested a beautiful spot in the woods…Katy and Bob agreed but also wanted some water in their images to reflect the beautiful Pacific Northwest.

I got so excited when I saw the beautiful dress and flower crown Katy chose for her session. It was absolutely perfect. The long, flowing dress in magenta contrasted with the green of the woods. The flowers in her hair matched the location perfectly.

Katy herself was glowing and vibrant.  A beautiful maternity session in the woods by Bellingham maternity photographer, Renee Bergeron of Little Earthling Photography. A beautiful maternity session in the woods by Bellingham maternity photographer, Renee Bergeron of Little Earthling Photography.

I had so much fun at this session. Katy and her husband both have a great sense of humor and we laughed through much of the session. After we finished up in the woods Katy braved a trek down a local hiking trail so we could get some images in front of Lake Whatcom.

I think we can all agree it was worth the effort.

Bellingham Birth Photographer: Mace’s Beautiful Homebirth

posted in: Birth | 1

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.

…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.

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.

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

I have been a Bellingham birth photographer since 2010.

It never, ever gets old.

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.

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.
