Photographer Captures Her Sister Giving Birth in Omaha - From 1,250 Miles Away

On April 11, Lena Watson entered Methodist Women’s Hospital with high blood pressure and a doctor’s order to be induced more than two weeks ahead of schedule. Only her husband, Will, could be there in person under hospital rules as the contagious novel coronavirus raged in Omaha and the world.

Some 1,250 miles away was Lena’s little sister, Anna, a photographer who had moved to New York City last November to expand her Omaha-based photography business.

With her plans to visit and document the birth in person shelved, Anna pitched an idea to her sister: What if they tried photography by Zoom?
