Banks Grier | Greenville Birth Photographer | Greer Memorial Hospital

This family is so special to me and I just can’t believe how much life I’ve been able to experience with them.  This was the third time I’ve been in a delivery room with Ben and Joanna and her mom, but that doesn’t even scratch the surface of how many times they’ve been in front of my camera… and it all started because Joanna and I sat close to each other when we were on staff at our church together.

This being the third time around, we knew a few things were almost for certain (because when it comes to babies being born nothing is ever set in stone!):

  • Joanna’s babies come fast so we all wanted to be ready when the time came.
  • She delivers at Greer Memorial so the hospital is smaller, but the rooms are bigger!
  • Ben had his candy stash ready, although they’d been prepared for a couple of weeks so there wasn’t as much as there had been originally.

Banks definitely came fast and furiously when he was ready.  So much so that it seemed like Joanna maybe pushed 3 times before he was here!  God created women’s bodies to conceive, grow and give birth to babies… but since we live in a broken world, none of that is ever perfect or easy.  Some women aren’t able to go through this process for all kinds of reasons.  And having walked through some of that with friends and having miscarried a baby of our own, the miracle of birth is not lost on me.  Which I think is why tears come to my eyes with each birth I have the honor of photographing.

Ben and Jo, thank you for letting me be a part of your THIRD baby being born!  I love being in the delivery room with you guys and capturing those first few moments with your children for you.  Congratulations on your sweet, new baby boy!

It was tough to watch her contractions, but she handled them with so much grace and strength.
