Valerie - I followed a link from Pinterest to your site. These were the most amazing birth pictures I have ever seen. You do AMAZING work. You thought of shots that no one else would have and told the whole story of this new little family.

And by the way, the doctor should absolutely use those pictures in his advertising. The one where he’s walking away really stirred my emotions for some reason. It was like he just gave these people the best day of their lives, and then his job is finished. :)

I always try to make it special for my pts. But, after Maddox as born…..WOW! My daugter is an RN working in newborn nursery, me L&D. Well, I wasn’t prepared for the most important day of our lives. We delivered with friends and families that had been apart of Amy’s life since I come to work at GRMC (she was 2 my youngest 10 wks).

Kathy Penrod - I LOVE this! I am seriously wiping tears from my eyes and I don’t even know anyone involved in this day. I would love to know more about the lighting you used. I have heard horror stories of trying to shoot in the hospital and I am really nervous to try it. Its not like you can get a “do-over”. Do you mind sharing what tricks you did to ensure your lighting was so great? Even as the day wears on, you still maintain such a quality to the image. I am so impressed and wishing I could have my babies all over again just to have some one there doing this. L.O.V.E.

Cami - Hi Brittany G. (If you can, would you please pass this comment to Russell and his family?) You don’t know me, but Russell might remember me. I was friends with his sister when we were kids. I was just browsing Pinterest when I came across this pin about what pictures you should take at the hospital when you have a baby. I did’t recognize Russell right away, but then I saw some pictures of his dad. Then one of his mom, him, and his baby boy. I couldn’t help it but start to cry. I just wanted to pass on my thoughts to you two and his family right now. I wasn’t able to make it to her funeral but I want you all to know that I was there helping honor her in my heart. I have the best memories of her. What an amazing woman. I am so sorry for your loss at her passing. Although I didn’t have many interactions with her since I was younger, she, and the Shawcroft family, are people I will always remember and love. I pray that our Heavenly Father blesses and comforts you all so much right now. Best of wishes, Cami (Hurst) Boudwin

Chelsee Bingham - Hi My name is Chelsee Bingham and I am a photographer in Mesa Az. I love your birth story shoot and had a couple questions for you. I have been asked to shoot a Birth story June 10th and I was wondering if you had any lighting tips or tricks you could pass on. I am really nervous because this will be my first one. Would you recommend a soft flash? Hope to hear back.

Thank you!
Chelsee Bingham

Philippa - I’m engaged to be married, I can’t have children and I thought I was OK with that until I saw this. My heart stopped.

You are brilliant.

katty - I followed a link from Pinterest to this – I’m so happy I did. You do amazing work. If you’re ever in MN, please let me know :)

Pamela in Victoria, BC - I too followed a link from Pinterest to find this photo set. BrittanyG, you are a gifted photographer – these are all simply gorgeous. I have two kids, now adults, but my circumstances when they were each born didn’t allow for any photos.

My first child’s birth was premature and his dad was a patient in the hospital, so there was no chance of photos. With my second birth, my daughter, I was alone as a single mom. I didn’t have anyone with me to take any pictures, so to see these really was heart-wrenching.

I hope this new family has a wonderful life with their new little boy. Blessings to them, and continued success to you with your photography. You’ve done an outstanding job.

Pamela

Heather - Thank you both for sharing such a beautiful miracle. Your son is so lucky you both love him so much to do this for him.
