On Saturday, July 26th I had the incredible privilege of photographing Jamiel Malachi enter the world. His momma was incredibly strong as she endured a very long labor. That moment that you meet your baby for the first time, well there’s just nothing in the world as amazing. Congratulations Richelle and Mark on the birth of your precious baby boy! It was an honour to be able to document your birth story. Blessings to your family as you settle into life as a family three.
A big thanks to Dr. Evans and the wonderful team of nurses at the Penticton hospital. Another big thanks goes out to Gina from Gem Doula services. This woman was amazing! She was coaching, encouraging and helping Richelle deal with labor pains throughout the entire labor. Daddy (aka Mark) did an awesome job of supporting his wife through everything, I was so impressed with his gentle and assuring way with Richelle. Richelle was also blessed to have her mom as a part of our support team. Her mom fervently prayed for her and was by her side during the whole labor. Richelle’s good friend Nicole also joined the family for the birth and was another awesome support person for Richelle.
