San Antonio Home Birth Photographer - The Birth of Turner

I had so many amazing births last year. This is definitely a favorite of mine. A home birth with one of my favorite doulas and awesome midwives? Yes, please! 
Turner made a quick entrance after I arrived. The moment he was earthside, he was so calm. Just taking everyone in. Coral had the best support system. Her husband, Daniel, was so supportive of her. I loved watching their connection.

Another thing I loved about this birth....this was the first time I ever witnessed a cord burning ceremony! It was so neat to witness and document.

Enjoy!

San Antonio Birth Photographer - The Birth of Ada

Oh, Ada. 
This girl was born into one of the most loving families that I know. I've mentioned it before, but I am SO behind on blogging that she is already one!! Wahhhh! Life just goes by so fast. 
My hope is that all of my birth clients are able to reflect on their birth images and love them forever and ever. 

Happy (belated) birthday, Ada!!

San Antonio Birth Photographer - Family Centered Cesarean - The Birth of Presley

This is the second birth I've documented for this family. I love being welcomed back into someone's birth space. It's always an honor and I enjoy watching the older sibling welcome the newest member! 

Kim was scheduled for a cesarean later in the month, so when I got her call earlier than expected, I knew it was time! I was sitting at my desk working when I saw her name pop up. We are pretty good friends now, so instead of saying "Hello?" I just blurted out, "OMG. You're in labor!" Haha! 

Miss P was a SURPRISE gender birth! There were lots of tears when the doctor held her up, "It's a girl!" 

To Justin and Kim - thank you so much for always trusting me with your precious memories. 

ENJOY!

The Birth of Jack - San Antonio Birth Videographer

I had the honor of attending another amazing birth at the Birth Center Stone Oak in San Antonio, Texas!

I loved watching this strong mama labor while dad was with her every step of the way. They were so in sync and in love, I cry every time I watch their film. Jack is one lucky baby to have such loving parents.

ENJOY!

San Antonio Cesarean Birth Photographer - The Birth of Eivin

This was the second birth that I've documented for this family! I love having repeat clients and watching their family grow right before my very eyes.

Shortly after announcing my own pregnancy, Aurora let me know that she too was due with a little one! I told her that I would do every thing possible to make sure I could attend her birth.

Just six weeks after having my son, Aurora was admitted to the hospital. The morning of Eivin's birth was FAST. I got a call that they were heading back into the OR and I headed out the door. I ran...I mean, I walked quickly through the halls of the hospital to the OB triage. The nurse was expecting me. She had everything ready and helped me put on my bunny suit and we headed back.

There I saw Isaac. Patiently waiting to be with his wife. After catching my breath we sat and talked and waited for them to call us back. It always seems like eternity when we are waiting to join mom in the OR.

The time came and we went in. I saw Aurora laying on the table. I think when you document someone's birth, something happens and you're connected to that person forever. So not only did I see a mother there, I saw my friend. A strong, selfless woman, preparing to meet her son.

ENJOY!

Probably the most powerful image I've ever taken. No words are needed.

Seriously. They're the most gorgeous family!

The following day I went back up to the hospital for a Fresh 48 session. These are always perfect for siblings meeting the first time!
