Rudy Charles | Greenville Birth Photographer | Patewood Memorial

Photographing two births within a couple of weeks of each other only has me itching to photograph more!  I’ve said it so many times, but birth photography was never on my radar.  But after photographing 17 births in 4 different states over the last several years, it’s safe to say that God’s plans for my business has always been better than my own!

Anderson and Laura were scheduled for a c-section with their second baby boy if she didn’t go into labor on her own.  So I kept my phone turned on each night just in case that happened!  And while she was having some contractions the day before, Rudy decided (unlike my own second born) that he wanted to come on his scheduled date :-)

I pulled into the Patewood Memorial parking lot just before 7am on a chilly November morning.  This was my first time photographing a birth here and I hope it’s not my last.  The doctor (who is one of my own doctors!) and all of the nurses were so kind and welcoming and even in the midst of doing their own jobs, offered to help anyway they could so I could do mine!  I’ve been so blessed to have had incredible experiences with the medical staff at each birth I’ve been a part of, but when people go above and beyond for you, you take notice… and it’s so appreciated.

I still remember Laura texting me when I was just getting started in photography to ask if I would take hers and Anderson’s engagement photos.  And they wanted to pay me!  I couldn’t believe it, but was so excited.  They asked someone else to photograph their wedding because of how new I was, but I was actually super thankful because I didn’t have a clue what to do for a wedding day.  And their wedding photos are beautiful.  I would NOT have been able to do them justice back then.

I don’t think any of us will forget the squeals of the nurses when the doctor cleaned off Rudy’s head and saw that he did in fact have red hair like his daddy!

I rarely post color photos from births, but red hair is definitely a reason to post some color photos!

He kept wriggling that hand out to say hi.

This is by far a favorite.
It’s so incredible watching my friends become parents. Even the second time around.
