It was so much fun to be able to join this amazing family to welcome another boy! Not only do I love have siblings at a birth, I got to bring my own daughter to her first birth as she was helping watch the toddler. It was amazing! Mama worked so hard and beautifully delivered this chunky little man. My fav moments were when big brother got to hold him. It was absolutely love at first sight.
This little, or not so little, girl has quite the birth story! While her mama had planned a homebirth, she had different plans in mind. It was a long and hard birth, but man did her parents rock it. It was such a privilege to be there and to get to capture all the highs and lows. Isn't she the sweetest chunk you have ever seen!?!
While this mama's labor may have been VERY short, the love and affection once sweet William arrives makes up for it. Be sure to watch all the way to the end when his big sister sings happy birthday to him in French!
I just adore this family. I have been blessed to photograph the Henry's birth and was thrilled to be welcomed to Williams. Although I was teasing mama that she didn't give me much warning and nearly made me miss it! Thankfully I arrived with a minute to spare before William came into the world. Congrats!
This sweet boy made me run!! He decided that he was coming into this world and he wasn't waiting on anyone! Needless to say, I literally walked in the door 30 seconds before he came into the world. While I typically prefer a LITTLE more time than that, I was glad I made it. And ofcourse, homebirths with siblings is one of my fav things. They make it so much fun. It was an honor to capture this incredible moments for this family.
This sweet boy made his way quickly into the world surrounded by so much love!!! It was a beautiful birth and his big sister got to be there. It is always so awesome to watch the power of birth, but even more amazing when you get to share it with your daughter. It was an honor!
I love this family! They have been clients for the last two years since sweet Jovie was born, so ofcourse I jumped at the chance to help welcome sweet Knox. Mama sure worked hard and her sweet midwife, Cori Lively with Barefoot Midwifery, even brought her own new arrival to the party. It was so much fun to see these two babies snuggled next to each other. THIS is the community of birthing women I get to be a part of... so incredible!
As always, I am so excited to get to attend a birth with this mama. She is not only an amazing friend, but she is such a wonderful birthing mama. We knew that her labor would be fast and sure enough, I made it with just minutes to spare! The family was overjoyed to welcome their 8th son! Lysander was just incredibly beautiful and such a peaceful baby. Can't wait to see how he grows!
