Lisa Robinson-Ward is a professional photographer, and she takes her work very seriously and responsibly. So seriously that even during her own childbirth she could not let go of the camera and filmed the wonderful process of the birth of her daughter. And, admittedly, it turned out fine.

Lisa lives in California with her husband and 9-year-old son. The couple dreamed of a second child, tried to conceive for many years, but after two miscarriages decided to stop trying. What was Lisa's surprise when she found out that she was pregnant. As a dedicated photographer, she wanted to capture such an important moment for herself and her family.

The photographer said that such an idea came to her rather as a joke, but after thinking about it, she decided that it was worth trying. The shooting plan was very simple. If it works out, she will take it off, but if at some point she can't do it anymore, then it's also okay. Fortunately, the birth was easy. Lisa had a lovely daughter, who was named Anora.

Lisa asked the obstetrician if he didn't mind that she would be filming the birth. Although the doctor took it calmly, he was clearly shocked that the photographer really managed to shoot and give birth at the same time.
