Last week I posted a breathtaking photograph that has been entered into the National Geographic Photography contest; today I saw this one, another entry, and was equally blown-away. The photo was taken by a birth doula and friend of the mother, Tara Garner, who writes, “A mother gives birth to her son. This photograph captured a momentous introduction of a mother and baby’s first exchange. The baby is suspended in time, half way inside his mother and the world; being guided out by his mother’s own hands.” The birth took place in Summertown, Tennessee.
The winner of the contest will be determined by the National Geographic judges and announced December 15th. Pictures with the most votes from viewers will be featured in a viewer’s choice gallery. Check it out.
