The very first birth story that I was really fascinated by this Breanna Gravener's Apple Orchard car birth. She captured such an amazing experience, in such a beautiful way! After obsessing over this incredible birth, I spent a lot of time checking out her website and I loved the way she showcases her birth work. She captures details, big and small and her work shows that you CAN combine portraiture photography and birth photography in a unique way. Even if your clients don't deliver during golden hour, on a gorgeous fall day, in front of an apple orchard - it can still be thoughtful and beautiful. The angles she chooses to capture this story are thoughtful and creative; the colors are beautiful and the story is amazing.

Name: Breanna Gravener
This birth happened in the car, beside an apple orchid en route to the hospital. It was golden hour in the morning with melting dew on the grass.
Father and older sibling were in the car also and all were overjoyed and calm on the quick and safe arrival.

I also photographed her previous birth and her labors are all very quick, so I knew that I needed to head straight for the hospital as soon as I got the call. Her water broke naturally and we met their newest addition within about 2 hours. (And he was covered in more vernix than I have ever seen!)

After several years of battling an autoimmune disease and waiting for remission to start trying for a baby, my first two pregnancies ended in miscarriage. Little Miss Austin is truly our rainbow baby and our most beautiful answered prayer.
This is one of the most incredible Orlando, Florida births I have been privy to be apart of. Mama labored like a warrior at home and delivered her baby standing in the shower. Each birth I have documented has been so different from the last, and this birth story is no exception. There were many points during labor where I wanted to put my camera down, and help any way I could... but I knew mama had an amazing support team, and there was nothing I could do for her that her team wasn't already doing.
