On the morning of this wonderful homebirth, I received a text saying mama’s labor had started, and then slowed down again, so everyone was heading home to give her some time and space (even dad headed out to work), and we all planned to return when things picked up again. A few hours later, I got the call to go back. The midwives had barely just made it there in time to catch baby, the doula was still on her way over, and dad was on his way home.  Everything happened rather quickly, and unexpectedly (as births do), and by the time I arrived, baby was earth side, and still attached to his magnificent, pulsing cord (which you will see below). These first three images were taken seconds after dad met baby for the first time. Shortly afterwards, mama indulged in a warm, herbal bath with baby. I am thrilled to have captured some raw, beautiful images from this sweet family’s birth story; thank you, K family, for inviting me to be a part of your special day. ♥

You might recognize this beautiful family from their recent maternity photos. They also invited me to document their Fresh Baby session at Sacred Heart hospital, in Spokane, WA. (If you’re not familiar with this session, this is one of my birth photography options, in which I arrive at your birthing place within 48 hours after your baby is born, to capture those earliest memories and details as you bond with your fresh baby for the first time.)

Baby C is a miracle baby in all the ways, and I was beyond happy when I got the call saying, “all went well,” and that they were ready for me to stop by and capture some special memories. Enjoy these images from baby C’s first day earth side, and please reach out to me if you are interested in inviting me to document a special season for your family.

And I almost skipped this one out because it’s not the “typical” image — where baby settles calmly into dad/mom’s arms, and all makes for a perfect picture… There genuinely are those moments, and those photos do happen organically. But there are also these.  And I love this image because in spite of baby having a moment, mom and dad remain connected, and somehow, they seem to hold onto the hope that although your littlest people may journey you through the most trialing of times, you will make it through, together.

It’s truly amazing to me how quickly babies change within only a few hours from birth. That’s why I offer First Hours sessions to create a visual memory for families who want to capture their earliest hours with their newborn. This means that I arrive at your birth place within 48 hours, to document all those fresh, baby details, and elated moments with your brand new baby.

Garrett and Cari invited me to capture their first hours with their baby, Eric. (I also did a newborn session with them over this weekend, and it was so interesting to see how his face, hands, and feet, have already developed over merely two weeks!)  Enjoy these highlights from their First Hours session at Spokane Valley Hospital, and please connect with me if you are interested in inviting me to capture your growing family.
