This little girl was born into an amazing and loving family and it was such a joy to be asked to come and capture them during the start of them growing to a family of four.
I was originally going to be attending this little cuties birth but things didn’t go quite as planned and she had a stint in the NICU after an early birthday. Her mom and dad practically lived at Sacred Heart for a while and once little Leighton got released and settled in at home we finally got to meet. She was an absolute dream during my visit. She was as quiet as a mouse, just taking in all the surroundings, which I can’t blame her, wait until you see how cute her nursery is! Meet Leighton and her parents, who were so excited to be home with their baby girl.
A beautiful home birth from October. This family waited until babies debut to find out the gender and they were so surprised when they welcomed their first little boy after having 3 girls before him. The day was filled with family, reading scripture and at the end, welcoming a son into his home. Congratulations again, Franklin family. I loved being there with you during this exciting and special time. [Disclaimer: some photos in the video aren’t accurate representations of the real photos.

A first baby… There are so many emotions when a woman is laboring and going through childbirth for the first time. The mystery of the unknown, and the excitement and love for this child you are about to meet. This little boy was welcomed with so much love. After a long week of pre-labor and then intense active labor these parents were ready. Every minute they were that much closer to holding their precious son. I don’t feel my words can begin to tell their story, so hopefully this video does it justice. Congratulations again, Foster family, it was such a joy capturing your story. I have been so excited… 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
This sweet girl came quick on her due date- Thanksgiving morning. Mom labored naturally and had a rather quick labor and delivery. Her midwife got there about 30 minutes before baby locked eyes with her parents for the first time. What a wonderful way to start the holidays!
