Jesse's Journey - a personal blog post

Last Friday night, just before midnight, we welcomed our son into the world.

Jesse John Godden was born at 11.33pm on the 5th August 2016.

Its been a long, and very emotional journey, but capturing these emotions and special moments along the way has somehow made the IVF process a little bit easier to get our heads around.

Every week I photograph people getting married. I tell the story of one of the biggest days of their lives. Well, this is the story of the biggest year of our lives.

There's a lot of images included here, but there is definitely many more photos that I decided to not include in the slideshow. And there were even more moments that I didn't even want to photograph.  

In a world where not many of us print our photos anymore, I hope one day Jesse will watch this slideshow and be moved by the story of how much Clare and I went through to have him. But most of all, to see just how much we love him.







Many thanks to the amazing staff at Nurture Fertility, and also the midwives and doctors at Nottingham City Hospital, and The Sanctuary.
