oh my gosh- you did such an awesome job. Talk about capturing the moment. Wow- you are so so talented.

Karen

Breathtaking!

Lyndsay, what an absolutely beautiful gift you have. So peaceful and breath taking. What a wonderful memory for your friends.

Megan

Oh.my.goodness. The Birth of Calla slideshow has got to be one of the most amazing things I've ever seen. I remember seeing some of your first posts on two peas, and I have followed your blog for a long time now, but you have outdone yourself on that one. Every shot, I could put myself there, and it brought back memories I didn't even think I had of my own daughter's birth.

Congrats to the Tucker family. Your children are beautiful, and what a blessing to have such a wonderful documentation of such a special day.

WOW Lyndsay, that was just beautiful. You are totally making me reconsider my husband only in delivery room policy. Can you please please come to Seattle and photograph my labor and delivery.

Kelly

Lyndsay, I know that I post a lot on this blog and make comments about how wonderful you are, but like another poster said, you've truly outdone yourself. You have an amazing connection and relatioship with your camera. In this slideshow of Calla, you made the event come alive in pictures... I'm speechless. You captured all of the right details. You captured the right mood. You even chose the perfect music! I hope you consider doing birth photography as a regular thing. I'm sure it was exhausting for you, but I hope you see the outcome and are assured that it was worth it!

Julia

Wow - that's just about all I can say - just WOW!!!

Dana (ILP)

Wow. What a special gift for this family. This was amazing. Excellent job.

Heather

That was amazing! I am sure she is going to LOVE them all. What a way to capture the moments of your babies beginning. Great Job, like always of course!

Karen Schneider

That was incredible, quite impressive. I loved every picture and I'm sure the family is beyond pleased!!

Debbie

Wow Lyndsay. I am a huge fan of yours and I've seen you come a long way. You are such an inspiration to me. You push me to keep working at this thing I do with my camera and you teach me to use my heart while doing it. And I'm always impressed by your most recent work, but this just blows me away. The raw emotion that you captured is so beautiful. You brought so many memories of my own to mind as I watched the birth slideshow. And all the details... You truly did an awesome job. How lucky these parents are (and child is) to have this.

Janelle

Lindsay - that was amazing! I hardly ever leave a comment but that slideshow really compelled me to, it brought tears to my eyes. You'll have to fly down here for our next birth!

Heather

Wow. Just Wow.

Lyndsey, I remember back when you got your Nikon and started toying with different lighting and doing little impromptu photoshoots with you kids. You were a natural...obviously! Look at how far youve come! These are some of the most beautiful, touching, emotional photos Ive ever seen! I felt like I was reliving my own birthing experience...and like someone else commented, it brought back memories I had forgotten all about.
You should be so proud of yourself :)
Ive never heard of hiring a photographer for a birth...maybe you'll start a new trend ;)

Shey

amazing! Absolutely incredible photos.

rachelzana

Wonderful! I'm not a person normally moved to tears, and I was! These are super emotional, super detailed images! They are photographs with a clear vision, and when I watched them I FELT like I was there. What a treasure for her to have! I loved watching these. I lurk on your blog daily. And I'm so glad!

Stephanie

oh.my.goodness.

That.... was just.... perfect. I cried! What a lucky woman to have these memories... they brought back so MANY for me =)

Bridget
