'Benik birth story' by Jonathan Canlas

This is by far the most beautiful birth story I have ever seen captured through photography. Jonathan shot our wedding and has remained my favorite photographer since I've known him. He shoots film exclusively, and every image he posts on his blog is amazing (and most of what he posts is SOOC- he's incredible). If you're into photography and he's not on your blogroll, he should be.

Seeing these images made me feel and remember. They made me long for the day when I will experience the joy yet again that comes from welcoming a child into the world. That's what good photography does.

Jonathan's images are even more poignant considering what is going on with his own wife and unborn son right now.

Take a minute and look... and try not to cry.
