Katy Birth Photographer | Over the River Photography

Abby Made it safely into the world on Thursday September 25th 2014. Below is the story of her arrival. First though, is a short explanation of why I do birth photography in the Houston area.

I have been asked a number of times, “Why birth photography?”

Here is the answer from this birth photographer:

People. Family. Friends. – These are the individuals who make our lives worth living.

And remembering moments that you share with those people? It’s a priceless thing.

Moments like the birth of a child are the ones that make the crud of life completely worth it. You don’t realize how special those moments are until they’re gone. Which is why photographing them is so very important. Doing so transforms the way we can remember a moment.

Birth photography is so unique.

In those hospital rooms struggle and pain is shown in such a raw way.

It is so real and poignant, yet it changes so rapidly when baby is placed in the arms of those who made it.  The struggle and pain turns to love, relief, and joy.

I do what I do so I can help people remember that feeling. That love, relief, and joy.

So they can not only remember it, but share it with those they care about the most.

In the moment it seems like it will last forever and that you could never forget it. However, memories fade all too quickly, and life changes. As a mother myself, I know this all too well.

I have chosen to do birth photography because there is nothing like it, and I want to help others remember the most important days of their families lives.  This way they can relive the most amazing moments of life. Forever.

This day was, for the Clements family, full of many amazing moments. The moment Abby took her first breath, things changed forever.
