William Edward | Greenville Birth Photographer | Patewood Memorial

When I first talked with Maggie and Charlie about photographing the birth of their son, we were chatting about names and they mentioned that they were just embracing the fact that they all happen to have very royal names.  And it took me a minute to realize what she was talking about… Maggie and Charlie are short for Margaret and Charles and then of course their son’s name is now William Edward!  And for as much as I love British royalty, this just put a huge smile on my face!

I began checking in with Maggie about how she was doing right around two weeks before her due date.  There wasn’t much going on, which is perfectly fine!  But as her due date came and went, I was just praying for her and sweet William because I knew they both were probably very ready to meet each other.  And sure enough, 4 days later, her water broke!

Saturday morning, I walked into their hospital room where they’d been for almost a full day and while I could tell she was already tired and uncomfortable, Maggie still had a pep in her voice and even got some sleep during the day as they waited on their son.  Charlie was by her side all the time and when he needed to step away, their doula was right there comforting and encouraging Maggie every step of the way.  Kathy was so wonderful and between the three of them and their families who came and went during the day, it was such a calm and encouraging space to be in.

The look of pure joy on Charlie’s face right here is exactly why I photograph births!
He just saw his son for the first time and was in awe of what his wife accomplished to bring him into the world!
