Photographer Lisa Robinson-Ward just captured the most amazing photos of a mom in labor and giving birth to her beautiful baby girl.

She also happened to be that mom in labor. Yes, Robinson-Ward took breathtakingly beautiful pictures of her own labor and delivery of daughter Anora.

“I was pretty flexible with the plan,” says Robinson-Ward. “If it became impossible I was fine with not doing it but fortunately I had a really easy and amazing birth experience.”

Stunning photographs detail the entire labor and birth experience - even down to the emotions showing on her husband's face as he watches his baby daughter enter the world. 

You can get all misty-eyed looking at the incredible photos here.
