The Birth of Maggie | St. Joseph Childbirth Center // Bellingham, Wa

What a beautiful birth this was. I so enjoyed being present for Maggie’s birth. Her mama was able to lift her to her chest, just like she wanted <3 I love that she was able to do this, and it was so neat to see. I had a dream once that I was having a water birth, and I lifted my own baby to my chest. I would absolutely love to have that dream come true, one day :)

Enjoy these beautiful and sweet moments captured on the day of Maggie David’s birthday.

The Birth of Lucy | Bellingham, Wa

I had the honor of witnessing Lucy’s birth on my own birthday! Honestly, I couldn’t have asked for any better way to spend my day! Cortney and Chas were such a good team, and they had such a good support system. It was so fun to attend Lucy’s birth, and seeing her come into the world was amazing.

Being present during a birth on the same day I was born 27 years before, brought on some specific emotions. I imagined my mom in labor with me, and how much I wish I could ask her questions about my birth. Even if my mom was still here to ask questions, I doubt she would remember a lot because she gave birth so many times!

Birth is such an emotional and intimate experience, and I love that it is becoming more popular for births to be documented. In whatever way you give birth, and whether you want birth photography or not, I highly encourage you to document your birth. Sitting down to write your birth story soon after delivering is a great way to remember it, when the emotions are still raw <3
