I SO wish I could have had her at my birth. I absolutely hate my birth pictures. I can't share them with anyone...the midwife's assistant took them from only one angle...and we know which angle that was! I just feel like crying every time I think about it.
I know exactly what you mean. We didn't get any photos taken until after Liam was born, and those were amateur snapshots. I'm pretty private about photos, so I wouldn't be posting them online but it would have been really nice to have them for myself.
I just came across your blog and just had to share photos of my fourth child's birth. It was so, so sweet and while I went back and forth whether or not to hire a professional photographer, I am SO, SO glad I did!http://www.justhisbest.com/2009/10/200th-post-what-could-be-better.html
Thank you so much! I'll put up a blog post with that link soon. Did you birth your other babies at home as well? Now I'm wishing I'd had a skilled photographer at my home birth.
