How amazing is the human body? The pregnant body. The postpartum body. The newborn baby body. Growing, feeding, nurturing.

I love when a baby gets some skin to skin time with daddy.

She's perfect.

Midwives are so cool. So. Cool. This woman is a student midwife. I soaked up some serious inspiration watching and talking with her.

I ❤homebirths.

What special things did you have with you during the birth of your baby?

What an honor for me to be there for my third time photographing this amazing mother in labor.

The midwife and I had both driven a little over an hour to be there. Labor had slowed down a bit since she had asked us to come and the kids had woken up. Now that the birth team was there and the kids were with a friend, a walk helped contractions to pick up again.

It was 7am. She was leaving for a friend's house, knowing when she returned, her new baby brother or sister would be born.

We baked a cake for Jasper's half Birthday. :)
