Beautiful and tasteful images of a new baby coming into the world, in a hospital, home or birth center environment, vaginal delivery or cesarean.

Our friends just had their third baby yesterday, a sweet little boy named Joaquin! He was born via c-section and I couldn’t be in with them for surgery, but I came later when his big sister and brother got to meet him for the first time, which was beyond sweet. Little Joaquin weighed 6 lb 8 oz and was 19 in long, such a little teeny tiny! I’m in love already!

A couple of days ago, before Joaquin was born, his mama came to sit in my backyard in a spot I’d been eyeing for pictures and let me document her baby bump too. The night before that we were at a friends and I took some picture of the other two kids, so these are all going in one post.:)

Congrats Carla, Johnny, Luci and Che!

This morning I woke up, got my kids off to school and headed out to a birth, and whoa what a birth! I walked into the room and began to feel out the mood and it was immediately clear that this mama was strong, focused, present and working hard. She and her husband worked seamlessly together through waves of contractions and pushing to help a beautiful, perfect baby girl into the world! The whole thing was lovely and inspiring! Congrats Jayson and Sherry on your precious gift! I can’t wait to see you again for newborn pictures.

I was so pleased to meet Simon and Rebekah a few weeks ago and find out that Simon worked at the same company as my husband and that they were planning on giving birth at the Birthroot Birth Center and that they wanted me to photograph their birth! Well after a gorgeous and strong labor, which Rebekah rocked, Andrew Peter made his way into the work d weighing 6 pounds and 11 ounces this morning. He is just a beautiful baby boy and it was so beautiful to witness his birth and all the love he entered the work into. Here are some of my favorites form his birth.

Simon and Rebekah are new to Bellingham and are without family in the area so I have set up a meal train to try and help support them during this time of transition into parenthood and establishing themselves in a new community. If you would like to bring them a meal (or even order them a meal or gift card for a meal from out of town) click here.  And don’t forget to leave them some love in the comments!
