But when the painful marathon is over, Paula captures those tender moments between a mom and her new baby as they meet for the first time.

Paula, from Brazil, started taking photos of women in labor after the birth of her own daughter, Ingrid, now 17. The incredible photos show the tender moments of a mom meeting her baby for the first time. Paula captures the moment a baby is born via C-section, still in the amniotic sac.

“I am very happy and fulfilled. Each birth brings a different emotion,” she said. The 39-year-old has always been interested in photography and began working in her father’s studio when she was 16. Following family tradition – her father, brother, and grandfather are all photographers – Paula went on to become a child’s photographer. Then, in February 2001, Paula welcomed Ingrid into the world and invited her father to take pictures of the birth. A few days later, she saw the pictures and the emotions she felt giving birth came flooding back. In that moment, Paula decided she wanted to do the same for other parents.
