Every birth is sacred.

- Ina May Gaskin

This baby, their first little girl, came fast and furious–at 4am. Angela had a beautiful water birth at home, surrounded by her husband and amazing midwifery team. I loved watching Gary gush over his daughter. I can’t wait to come back to photograph the whole family (with two big brothers) together. Congratulations!!

    AS always,your photographs are amazing and unique! You have captured such precious moments for this beautiful family. Great job!!!!!ReplyCancel

Here is part one of Lauren’s birth story. Her labor was long and so I went home and came back to The Farm the next day. Seeing this mama work very hard was astounding. And she did it–I couldn’t help but cry with them when their sweet baby boy was born! Such a complete and overwhelming joy.

As sure as the sun will rise,
And chase away the night,
His mercy will not end. 

There is good news,
There’s a promise,
That no matter where you go,
You will never be alone.

In the dark,
In the doubting,
When you can’t feel anything,
O His love remains the same.

-Ellie Holcomb

The first time I met Josh and Lauren was in their home. I love getting to know my clients and telling a part their story. I can’t say this enough–being invited to witness such an intimate and awesome event like the labor and birth of a baby is a privilege. When Lauren told me she was going to birth with The Farm midwives, I was excited and nervous. It’s the farthest I’ve driven to photograph a birth, but it was so worth it. It is a beautiful place to be – plentiful trees and gardens and quietness. Here is part one:

    Lovely – such a beautiful series capturing the space and the quiet anticipation of early labor (at least I’m assuming this was still early on). ReplyCancel
