I was beyond honored to be a part of Miles’ birthing journey earthside. I’ve gotten to know his beautiful family from working with them with their first child for his newborn session, 6months session and 12months session! As soon as they found out they were expecting a second little babe, I was asked to be their birth photographer to capture Carrie’s natural home water-birth! I couldn’t have been more thrilled!

Miles decided to hang out where it was nice a cozy for a bit longer than expected, so we were all anxiously awaiting his arrival:) Carrie gave me a call mid-day telling me that she had some cramping and to just to give me a heads up that she could possibly be going into labor later that night. A mere two hours later, I unexpectedly got another call that it was go-time! I arrived within the hour, and Miles joined us only about 90 minutes later! The intense strength and grace that Carrie exuded during her quick labor was absolutely inspiring!
