east nashville photographer | labor & birth of Anders

i don’t know where to begin with this post. even now, two weeks later, i still get choked up when i think about my time with this family. it was truly an honor to get to watch Nikki and her husband Jeremy, work as a team to bring their little boy, Anders, into the world. the whole time i was with them, i was in awe at how women have to go through so much work (and pain) to deliver their babies. but then once that babe is born, joy comes. this was especially poignant, since Nikki had a natural labor.

i love the real, raw emotion and beauty of birth photography.  it fills my soul. i hope to continue to get to document these miraculous events.

oh there are so many more photos, but i’ll end here for now.  i’ll post a part two later this week, to show when Anders gets to meet his big brother and sister for the first time!

  • Kathy White - One of the most beautiful photographic journey of a birth that I have seen…ever! You did a magnificent job and it looks as though you and your camera were not intrusive, yet captured the stark beauty of the labor and then those first moments of life. I applaud your gift.ReplyCancel
