My cousin is expecting her first baby! .... And it's a week late ???!!

For her first child my cousin appears so calm and taking each day in her stride. Every time I've seen her growing bugger and bigger, walking more slowly, she seems so calm and relaxed! And not phased by this experience one bit? Thinking back to when my first daughter was being born (wow time has flown by) my emotions were all over the place. Is the baby ok, Is the mum ok? How is she feeling? Have we got everything we need upon our baby's arrival? And do on. So I'm absolutely positive my cousins husband must have the same crazy emotions as l as I did. The family are all on tender hooks waiting for the phone call or text that says "she's" ...finally here! and I just can't wait to jump for joy. As the family has a new addition and its extended. What a wonderful moment ... As a photographer (You did see this coming didn't you??) Another door of opportunity flings wide open it will be so rude of me not to walk on through. Of course, I'll be waiting for the new mum and dad to get into a routine, let them settle before I turn up with my rucksack full of equipment weeks later. I am actually quite amazed these days that doctors/surgeons have become more relaxed these days and allow camera equipment into surgeries! Video camera, mobile phones and DSLR's appear to be the norm alongside sharp and incredibly clean hospital instruments. Nearly 12 years ago now I was told to leave the theatre as I didn't have surgery shoes on. So by the time I left got my surgery shoes and came back to theatre my wife had been given her epidural! (Ha, a blessing in disguise then!)

Some couples have hired photographers to record or take pictures of the moment their child is born. I do find that surprising as, as I said doctors in their own environment don't always allow this and going on my experience they would never of allowed me to bring my camera phone into theatre let alone a professional DSLR camera. It's their theatre and they have the final say as to what goes on inside it. Who is allowed in and who is not

So once my new cousin has been cleaned up and getting used to her new surroundings and sounds in this big new world. Pictures of her with her proud mum and dad... grandparents, aunties and uncles, cousins and friends. Well that must surely follow. Just let me know when....
