Phinehas | Orange County Birth Photographer

Three years ago, I was given the honor of photographing my first birth! Having never seen a birth before, I was nervous/excited/scared. My dear friends, Geneva and Lucas, kindly agreed to let me witness and photograph the birth of their third child, Bliss. You can see those photos HERE. Geneva gave me courage and took away the fear of child birth for me. For that, I will forever be grateful! Little did we know that soon after I photographed Bliss' birth that I would be expecting my own child.
Now, having had my own son and photographed other births, I was thrilled to get to photograph the Enge family again as they expected their fourth child. They chose not to find out the gender of all of their children until birth. What wonderful surprises! Already a family with three daughters, I think everyone secretly hoped for a boy...myself included! 
At about 3am on a Thursday, God answered and gave the Enge family a son! What a joy to be part of that moment! Congrats, dear friends!
