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

Today I got to document a sweet baby girl’s entrance into the world at home, with her mom, dad, two big brothers, two midwives and two doulas! It was such a beautiful celebration! Lioness, you are so loved already and your mama is so strong! Here are some of my favorites form her birth today. board0board1boad2


This sweet baby boy came into the world via cesarean last week and I got to document his mama going into and then everyone coming out of surgery as well as his first couple of hours of life, nursing, meeting his big sister and other loved ones. It was a lovely day for a beautiful baby boy to be born. And the baby’s name is not actually Banjo, as the title might have led on, but what the Dr. was calling him before his mom and dad settled on a name for him.:)

Wow, so many births lately! This one was was born at home on Saturday, releiving me of my previous obligation of doing a triathlon in the middle of the day on what of the hottest days of the year so far.:)This was also another birth in the books for me where I shot with one hand and held mom’s leg back with the other, which always makes me feel a little like I’m wearing a cape for the day.:) Here are some of my favorites from his journey into his mom and dad’s arms.


Last week I got a text that Rebekah was unexpectedly pushing right then ,and it was one of those times I was ever so thankful to live  just a few block from the Birthroot Midwives and Birth Center! I got to the birth center in less than 5 minutes from the text and got to photograph her baby making is entrance into the world! When his head came out you could see a hand up by his face and his cord wrapped around both. I watched as Ann, one of the midwives carefully and quickly loosened and removed the cord. It was so neat to watch both midwives and doulas work with such calm and wisdom! Welcome to the world Finley Daniel!

Thanks for allowing me the honor of watching you become parents Rebekah and Isaac!
