It's totally a cliche, but there's something about birth photography that makes me quiet. Every time I see photos from a birth — whether it's an unmedicated home birth or a hospital birth or something in between — I just feel like… I have to respect the awesomeness that is childbirth. These photos by Georgia Peach Pictures (she wrote that guide to making your family videos more awesome you guys loved) have definitely rocked my world.
Birthing a kid is a pretty cool thing to do, but not unique: everyone who has experienced it shares the experience with millions of people around the world. So in that light, it's pretty awesome to me that people choose to have their birthing experiences documented: it's like your way of giving one big tip of your hat to everyone else. Nice.
