This was my first time documenting an at-home birth and it was incredible. I love stepping into people’s homes–it is such a huge part of who they are. I am thankful for these opportunities to tell trusted stories, like this of sweet little Levi’s home birth.
Levi’s mama labored for a long time. So long, that after being there for 8 hours, the midwife and dad asked me and the videographer to head home for the evening. I was on call during that time, however, we didn’t make it back in time to catch Levi actually being born. He came into the world with two pushes right after they called me to come back! Nonetheless, I was able to capture lots of laboring and the new baby boy with his family. I hope to photograph many more home births!
