Birth Photography South Carolina

I find it hard to put this all into words…but here’s my attempt.

Last week, I’d wake each morning rushing to my cell to see if I missed a message.

Each time a sweet sigh of relief. There would be none.

Throughout the day, with every “ding,” I’d dart for the phone.

A home birth.

Be still my heart.

I had no idea how emotional this moment would be for me.

Granted, I’ve seen my share of births. Each very special in its on way.

But this, my Lord.

Sweet Jesus.

Again, having difficulty putting it in words….

I’ve shared with Jenni that I think her baby’s birth was God’s little present to me.

After all, this was the direction my husband and I were taking for our baby’s birth when my little girl decided to arrive at just 25 weeks.

I see so many similarities in mine and Jenni and her husband’s relationship.

Brandon, doing whatever it takes.

That rock in difficult times.

The cheerleader and shoulder to cry on.

Jenni deep with determination.

Steady in her will.

…now there’s a lump in my throat. Eeep. Holding back tears as I type.

It happened.

Their second boy was here.

I was crying so that I had no idea if the camera was focused or not.

Good gracious I was even shaking. Which has NEVER happened.

Possibly it was the adrenaline that released from days of building.

Sweet Isaac.

Safe and sound.

In the MOST beautiful birth I have ever seen in my life.

To be able to photograph the literal birth (not allowed in hospitals) was so amazing…the actual images a bit too private to show…but absolutely beautiful.

Side note: Hospital births get ice chips. Home births get M&Ms. …just fyi

The moment…in photographs.

Just want to share with you Jenni’s thoughts (hopefully she won’t mind) about having a photographer at the birth of a child. For all of you Mommies that might be second guessing it…

“Absolutely amazing! I never even knew you were even taking pictures. I kept asking Brandon when we were looking at them “where was she, how did she get that shot?”. Love how Sammi was patiently sitting near by keeping a watch. The actual birth oh my to actually get to see what I experienced is a gift I will always treasure. They are some of the most beautiful moments captured in our familys life……I was a little afraid of how such an intimate moment could be captured in pictures but God gave you an amazing ability to capture these moments. Thank you, thank you, thank you!” -Jenni

What a joy and sweet little pumpkin…

Quendasha hill - Hi I am having my first child and extremely stuck on having a water birth I am due in August and just wanted to get some pricing for the session it will be at the Carolina Water Birth Center in Simpsonville, SC

Kristen A Abercrombie - Hi! I was wondering if you would be interested in photographing my birthing time. I am having an unmedicated water birth at Greenville Memorial and my guess date is July 24. If you are interested, please email me with pricing and we can see if we are a good fit. Thank you and I hope to hear from you soon!

Alice Jaynes - Beautiful. You do have a gift, Tiffany, of capturing the moments. What true pictures of love for each other and for sweet Isaac. I know Jenni and Brandon will treasure these pictures forever and I feel blessed to get to view them on here. I got to hold Isaac today for the first time and listening to Jenni tell me about his birth was emotional. Seeing the pictures tonight, I have tears in my eyes. Every baby is truly a miracle and a blessing from God.
