#oncalllife | Bowling Green, KY Maternity and Birth Photographer
Today is the day that I go on call for the next family that I am so honored to be able to tell the story of their birth and their journey to bring their little one earthside.
People say ... Photographing births must be amazing!!!!
IT IS. Absolutely 100% amazing.
But you can't really say just that ...
there is a certain level of commitment and life organization to anyone who serves families as a birth professional. This includes photographers, midwives and doulas ... even lactation counselors just to name a few.
What's it like? Well .. it's exciting .. but it's also stressful at times.
Do you remember when you were young, the night before a field trip?
Remember how you were so excited that you couldn't fall asleep and you woke up 3 hours before time to get up because you were scared to death that you would over sleep
and miss it?
Yup .. every day on call is like that but WAY MORE INTENSE.
It's knowing that you have to be somewhere and you're super excited to go
but you have no idea what day or what time.
It's not for everyone ... it's a tough lifestyle for so many reasons
but for me .. it's where my heart is
I'll do it every day for the rest of my life if that means I get to continue to be a story teller of life and love.
