I got the call around 11pm on October 31st. It was storming like crazy outside, in true Halloween spirit. Robin was in active labor and they were headed to the hospital. Her doula gave me a call to let me know how Robin was doing, and I made the decision to run home (I was next door watching a movie with my sister) and grab my go-bag to leave. Their little boy was born that next day on November 1st. Fast forward 1 week and I made a visit to their home for a sweet newborn session. He had already grown so much since first being placed in his moms arms just 7 days… Keep Reading
A sweet, little, lifestyle newborn session I got to do for one of my amazing birth mom’s. Baby Mira is a gem and was an absolute delight to shoot. You are so very loved, little girl. You have no idea how much.
When I first met with Kendall and her hubby I could tell they had been researching and preparing for this exciting time. Kendall had already booked her date with our local birth center and was planning a home birth. They actually lived near where my husband and I had our first apartment together. She had all her questions written out, which I myself do when I’m meeting with someone. They live on a road that has a family name where her grandparents and parents live. They are a close family and I love getting to see and hear about families that have that special bond. Especially when a baby is… Keep Reading
Justin and Mariah contacted me the month they found out they were expecting. This was their first baby and they had done a lot of research and preparation beforehand and wanted to make sure they got everything in the books right away. Mariah had a wonderful and healthy pregnancy and at her 20 week anatomy scan they found out they were having a BOY! They broke my streak, as my last 6 births had been girls! Before we knew it August was here: Due month had arrived. I got a call early Monday morning around 2am that Mariah thought her water had broken. I grabbed my bags and after she confirmed it… Keep Reading
There are some stories that I love to share. Describing the scene and environment surrounding a family just before and after they meet the newest member of their family. It’s exciting, emotional, heartfelt and an honor to get to do so. Some stories, however, can’t be shared so easily. Ashley contacted me about 6 weeks before her due date. Well, not technically her due date, but her induction date. You see Ashley was carrying triplets. You read that right, she had three precious girls in her womb. When we talked on the phone I knew we would connect quickly, and after hearing her story I knew we weren’t meant to… Keep Reading
This little man was born at home on February 16, 2015, straight into his mothers hands and then skin-to-skin with dad. The family had a beautifully peaceful water birth, the kind the makes you think “I could totally have another baby” ;)
