Welcome Baby Dax!

It amazes me over and over again to see that moment when a man and a woman enter into parenthood. Especially in such an intimate setting as a homebirth, it’s just intoxicating to be in the same room as a brand new life entering the world. Even more amazing is the ability to share these moments with friends and family without sacrificing the intimacy of the setting. This is what has drawn me to birth photography over and blessed me beyond belief by being able to capture these moments that so quickly fade in a haze of hormones, sleepless nights and the many new experiences that come with having a new baby. A few nights ago I was blessed once again by having the immense privilege of photographing the birth of this sweet little squish, Dax. Here are just a few images from that momentous morning when a husband and wife became parents to this perfect little soul.

    I love this!!!! Seriously, everything about these pictures is amazing. From the dad “catching” the baby to the champagne toast after the birth. I wish I would have done this.
