The birth of baby Deniz {birth photography}

I know I haven't posted on this blog in like half a year, but I recently photographed this birth, and I'm just way too excited about it to let it slip through the cracks like so much other stuff. This is the second time I've been able to photograph a birth and I'm hoping they'll be many more! I've just found myself so drawn to this experience.

Duygu and Yusuf are the sweetest couple. The moment I met them (and their little guy Derin), I felt so comfortable with them. Yusuf looks a little like Shawn to me and I think Duygu is one of the most beautiful people I've ever seen, and both of them just have a calm and sincere way about them. As I listened to Duygu talk about what the birth of her second child means to her, I was so struck by her sensitivity to life (and beyond thrilled that I would get to capture this for them).

So here they are, welcoming little baby Deniz into the world.
