Not so long ago an amazing franchisee owner and Photography for Little People family member Poppy had the opportunity and honour to be able to photograph and be apart of something truly amazing.
Poppy runs her own successful franchise business down in Torquay. She specialises in maternity, newborn and family photography. Poppy’s sister had asked her to be her birth partner and she wanted the moment cherished forever through photos.
"It happened all so very quickly! My sister went into labour at 6:30am on 31st March, 3 weeks early which was a total shock to everyone. As her birth partner I got the call from the hospital about 9am to let me know I might be required sooner than planned.
With it being Easter weekend I had friends over and being through birth myself I thought I knew it was a long process, mine being 26 hours and resulting in a C section. So I carried on as normal cooked everyone breakfast, dropped them at the beach and ambled my way over to Torbay hospital arriving around 11am.
Once I arrived I was immediately handed scrubs and was told that the theatre room was ready and the on-call team should be with us within the hour! Show time. My sister was going for hypnobirthing but being on a hormone drip this all went out the window so my job of keeping her calm and introducing breathing techniques got a stern reaction.
We were all theatre prepped & within 40 minutes everyone was ready and we headed into the theatre room, a swarm of people all concentrating on the job at hand. I had a chat with the wonderful surgeon Sam Booth to ask if it would be OK if I photographed the birth. He was more than happy for me to do this as long as I didn’t pass out – not something I could agree wouldn’t happen as it was the first time I had photographed a birth.
All set and the magic started. Happily chatting to my sister & in what seemed like seconds I was told he is on his way out so get your camera ready!!
Wow wow wow – it brings a tear to my eye to even recall the amazement of seeing little Williams head come out of my sisters tummy! It wasn’t until I had captured this truly incredible experience that I took the camera away from my face and had time to take in what I had seen & then and only then did I shed a tear.
My sister was incredible & as an older mum her little miracle baby entered the world early but perfect, weighing in at 6lbs 8oz on 31st March at 12:50pm – not quite an April fools baby."
