While most of us can’t really focus on anything other than getting that baby out during labor, Lisa Robinson-Ward, a California-based photographer, had another idea. She brought her camera with her as she was giving birth to her daughter. Lisa hoped that by photographing her experience, she’d be able to capture special memories and share it with her family. The idea started out as a joke, she told ABC News, but she decided to give it a try anyways. Scroll below to see the stunning photos.
