It's my favorite blog post of the year! Every December I make a year in review post and I love looking back on all these memories. This year was phenomenal! Let me start by saying limiting births for 2017 was the hardest decision I've ever had to make. Being a birth photographer with small children is HARD. I basically rely on everyone around me to make this work. It's hard, stressful, but so, so worth it. Looking back on this year, I cherish every single one of these hours I spent with these incredible, strong women.
*Six surprise gender births - these are so much fun!
*Ended the year with 8 boys and 5 girls
*All birth center births happened to be at the Birth Center Stone Oak
*Photographed my second birth where mom delivered on the toilet!
*Photographed my first cord burning ceremony
*I had my first ever viral birth film (14 MILLION views and counting!) - woot woot!
Thank you, thank you, thank you for allowing me into your birth space. For allowing me to document this special time in your life. You are all so special to me and I hope you cherish these images forever.
I'd also like to thank all of the Midwives, Midwife Students, OBs, nurses, and doulas for all of their help and being so supportive about having these moments filmed and photographed. These mothers deserve to look back and see an empowering image of themselves bringing their baby into this world.
Thank you again,
