The Birth of Elbie | Bellingham, Wa

This was a surprise gender birth. It is always so fun to wait and see what baby will be, and the announcement is so exciting! Baby is a boy!

Elbie was born on a sunny day in May. Big sister was brought to the birth center shortly after he was born, and those photos are so sweet.

May 21st, 2019 was an eventual day for me. I had the honor of photographing TWO births! Shortly after I got home from this birth it was time to leave again for a home birth! I will be blogging that birth soon, too <3

The Birth of Charles | Bellingham, WA

This birth was so beautiful. Jessica was AMAZING. She was strong, calm, and worked so hard during her labor. Baby Charles is her rainbow baby, and it was just so gratifying to see her hold that sweet baby in her arms. 

While walking outside to help progress labor, there was an amazing rainbow sun-flare. It was such a beautiful reminder of the journey these two have been on. I hope if you are reading this, and you've experienced a loss, that you have found a way to acknowledge and remember that baby you've lost. There shouldn't be a stigma, shame, guilt, or any other feelings that I know can come along with this. I will just say, I have so many feelings about grief. I am open ears if you ever need to talk about it!

I am incredibly honored to have witness the birth of Charles. Truly, it makes me teary thinking about this experience. Blogging this right now is bringing back all the emotions! Jessica has blessed me in so many ways with her friendship. I cannot wait to watch Charles grow up, and get to snuggle him and help document all his milestones!

Baby Girl Husband

This birth is very special to me. Being able to witness this new little life entering the world was such an honor, and a memory I will cherish forever. 

The morning started early, arriving at the hospital around 4:30am. Mama was at 4 cm, and working through contractions like a pro. Breathing the baby down with strong birthing sounds, and a confidence that I'm not sure she even recognizes. I hope these images show her that.

I am incredibly proud of my sister-in-law, for being so strong, confident, and just amazing. She labored hard, and with the support of her husband, mama, and mama-in-law, she birthed a beautiful baby girl <3
