Casey | In-Home Birth | Black and White Documentary Photography | Suffolk, Virginia

I’m pretty sure that every photographer has a photography bucket list. Something on my list was to document a birth. In-home, hospital, didn’t care. Documentary photography is something i’m passionate about and what better way to experience that than with a birth. Birth photography is something that was new to me. I didn't know truly what to expect I just knew that being on call meant, at any time, anywhere, I’d have to stop what i’m doing, grab my packed up camera bag and haul my ass over. When I received the text that it was time, my adrenaline started pumping, I quickly took an exit on the interstate and made a U-turn to head to Suffolk.

This past summer I had the amazing opportunity to associate photograph a wedding for Lia Everette Photography at the stunning Raspberry Plain Manor in Leesburg, Virginia. The whole entire day was beautiful, even with the rain. A first look took place in a secret garden gasp! Yes, a secret garden!!! It was AHH-mazing and the couple’s excitement and love for each other was swoon material! The rest of the day was filled with so much laughter, drinks, kick-ass dance moves and a huge sparkler exit.
