Hi!  I'm Lynsey Stone, the original DFW birth photographer.  I photograph births in the home, hospital or birth center environment all over the DFW metroplex.  I have been doing this for over 8 years resulting in around 300 births attended!  I have been married for 14 years and have 4 children - Riley, 16; Paityn, 12; Naiya, 9 and Eden who is 5.  My family includes several animal lovers, so we also have a gaggle of pets running around and through our house, including cats, dogs, chickens, guinea fowl and domesticated fancy rats!  

Please feel free to browse through the past several years of my work by scrolling, scrolling, scrolling.  If there is something specific you are looking for you can click on the category tab. All of the births I photograph are categorized by their location, as well as by type - cesarean, waterbirth, unassisted...   You can find my MUCH older work on my old blog (the link is in the menu bar!) and if you have questions about how I work or how to book me with please check out the FAQ page.

*Sometimes I have a hard time keeping everything updated here, so if you would like, you can also find me on Facebook at Lynsey Stone Photography - https://www.facebook.com/LynseyStonePhotography  Please become a fan, I love hearing from everyone!*

I have a long history of almost missing this mamas births!  With her 1st VBAC I hadn’t even made it out of Granbury when I received word that she was already pushing – and I had left my house after she had had only 1 contraction!  I made it with time to spare thanks to a longer pushing stage. With her 2nd VBAC I again left my house after only 1 contraction and walked in minutes before the birth.  This time I thought I was golden.  The family had moved quite a bit closer to me so I truly thought I would arrive in plenty of time and have an opportunity to take a few more labor pictures than I had been able to before.  I was so wrong.  I received a phone call on the morning of July 30 after 1 contraction, but unlike the previous births, this time she wasn’t sure that “this was really it.”  I went ahead and started driving just to be on the safe side.  Only minutes later the text came through that I had been dreading. “Hurry.”  When I arrived and walked into the bedroom you could already see a bit of little girls head.  Only 3 minutes later, she was born.  Labor had gotten faster, when I didn’t even think it was possible.  20 minutes, followed by the 30 minutes of pushing that saved me.

This was the 1st in a string of very quick births towards the middle/end of Summer.  Unfortunately, with this one I was called to come during late afternoon and was caught in rush hour traffic while driving to north Ft Worth.  This speedy delivery was a surprise to everyone – baby was born soon after the midwife and doula arrived, but sadly, before the birth assistant and I made it.  I walked in to a nursing baby and a very proud papa!

John Allan {Fort Worth Birth Photography}

“John Allan was diagnosed with IUGR (intrauterine growth restriction.) We had a few ultrasounds and an appt. with a high risk OB on Wednesday who said that it was safer for John Allan to be out of the womb rather than in. The OB suspected there was an issue with the placenta transferring nourishment and said that we needed to induce because the longer we waited the higher the chance there would be of either stillbirth or fetal distress that would lead to an emergency cesarean.

I want to give a huge thanks to our certified professional midwives, Christy Martin and Jamie Hinton, who continue to provide loving, thoughtful care after the birth. They stayed at my side during the hospital induction. They were with me at every appointment and with every contraction. They were there over two long nights trying to get our gender surprise baby born a little sooner than expected. If you want to feel supported, have these women in your life. Another huge thanks to the nurse midwives, high risk OBs and nursing staff at Harris Methodist Fort Worth.

We thank God for a beautifully healthy son, beautiful friends and beautiful prenatal and postpartum care. Hallelujah!”

Sutton {Argyle Birth Photography}

This mama had a L-O-N-G first labor, so everyone was shocked when she arrived at All About Babies Birth Center this time and was already 9 cm!  Baby Sutton had such a peaceful waterbirth in my favorite room there (birth suite B!)

Harper {Fort Worth Birth Photography}

 I always love working with the UNT midwife group at Harris Methodist and this was no exception.  Mom had a wonderful waterbirth soon after arriving at the hospital and was even able to take an herbal bath with the baby after spending some time with her older children.

Kai {Fort Worth Birth Photography}

This little man was originally to be born at the Fort Worth Birth Center, but unfortunately his water broke 2 months early so his midwives attended his delivery at Harris Southwest instead.  Since he wasn’t able to spend much time with his parents immediately after his birth I made multiple trips to see him as he got a bit older.

These photos were taken at a few days old when he was a bit stronger.  I was lucky enough to visit before he was given a bath!

I went to see Kai one last time for his herbal bath and footprints at Fort Worth Birth Center.  Even though he wasn’t able to be born there, he didn’t have to miss all of the fun things they do for their babies!
