Speedy Delivery! Photographer Captures Birth in Parking Lot {Graphic Content}

By Anthony Thurston on May 28th 2013

Boca Raton Birth Photographer Emily Robinson knew that her client would not have a long labor. She specifically met her and followed her to the hospital to make sure she was around when the moment came. Little did she know just how soon It would come.

Upon arriving at the hospital her client and her husband had to stop in the parking lot just outside of the hospital, the baby was coming and was not going to wait for the parents to make it inside. The couple’s midwife met them in the parking lot and the baby was born within minutes.

Emily was able to capture the entire experience and she noted on the blog:

“Dad rounded up a wheelchair and it was the first time I ever saw a mother be wheeled INTO the hospital holding her new baby. Usually that happens a couple of days later, and the wheelchair ride is the way out…”






According to Emily the Baby Sienna was as happy and healthy as you could ask for. I just the emotion on Dad’s face in that second to last picture. If I would handle myself better around blood I would love to be a birth photographer. Capturing moments like this would be so amazing.
