Hospital Birth in Katy, TX | Houston Birth Photographer

Meet Annie and her husband, Morgan. Annie is a strong, beautiful momma who gave birth to their baby boy at the Houston Methodist West hospital.

Birthing in a hospital comes with its own set of challenges. Although pain medication is readily available, and doctors and nurses are present to address critical needs (which this sweet couple needed), a mother's experience is limited. She has a limited view of what's happening to her body and to her baby during the birth process. Birthing on her back, often with blue hospital sheets covering her already limited view, is still standard practice in most hospitals.

Annie knew she didn't want to miss a thing and eagerly hired JSP to photograph her labor and birth to capture all the moments she would miss and to have their birth experience as a keepsake long after the memories fade.

The Harris' Birth Session at the Katy Birth Center | Houston Birth Photographer

My latest birth session with the Katy Birth Center was so quick that if you blinked you would have missed it! I arrived just in time to photograph the delivery of this momma's precious baby boy and all the sweet moments that happened after.

The Katy Birth Center is a magical place to deliver, filled with comforting smells like herbs and oils and home to mothering midwives whose goal is utmost care without uncessesary intervention. Peace radiates as soon as you enter the house. I love every second I'm there and every second capturing these amazing births.

Beautiful Birth Session | Houston Candid Family Photographer

I absolutely love being a family photographer in Houston TX. And now I have the pleasure of offering another beautiful service to my clients: birth photography!

We delivered our sweet Noah inside the comfort of the birthing pool at the Katy Birth Center. It was absolutely amazing, even if it did hurt like the dickens.

After experiencing the birth of our second son with the midwives at the Katy Birthing Center in Katy, TX, I knew, I just knew, I wanted to be a part of that magic again some day.

Little did I know the next time I would step foot inside the birthing center it would be through the lens of my camera!

I've birthed two boys naturally. I know the pain. I know the journey. I know the blessing and joy. Embarking on this new service as JSP is a true honor.

And so it was, on a gorgeous Saturday morning, I received the call from my first birth photography clients that they were officially in labor.

Erica and Trey were so peaceful together, rocking back and forth in the birthing pool, each contraction bringing their baby girl closer and closer. The hum of Erica's birthing song filled the room, everyone expectant, everyone ready, everyone at peace.

Here's the story of their labor in pictures. Enjoy!

(Note: the images below are of a woman in labor and will be revealing. Please be kind and respectful if you choose to comment. Thank you.)

Nightfall came and after 30+ hours of hard labor (she was amazing!) it was decided to transfer Erica and Trey to the midwives' partnering hospital so they could get some much needed rest before the final stage of Erica's labor. Sweet baby Alba, welcome earthside!
