ABILENE, Texas -

There are several big life events where most folks hire a photographer to capture the special moments; weddings, maybe big birthdays, anniversaries or family reunions.

But what about the one event that truly changes your life; the birth of a child? Sure, you have pictures of your bundle of joy as soon as he or she entered the world. But what about all the work and emotion experienced during labor?  Now there's someone to document it all for you.

Big Country photographer Karyn Carbone has recently taken a leap of faith; trading in her very successful wedding photography to focus on birth photography.

KTXS anchor Mari Cockerell talked with her about the switch and shows us the images that have come from it.
