“The First Hello Project grew out of a crazy conversation Bel and I had one day,” Bennett said.

“We had been sharing some fun stories over our bucket list moments that we as photographers had the opportunity to be a part of,” she said. “I told Bel how I would love to shoot a birth one day and she told me she had captured her friend and sister’s birth and how insane it was. It wasn’t long after our conversation that I was approached by a couple to capture their birth journey on film.”
