KENZIE & BRADEN + BABY REECE

Kenz and I have known each other since the good ol’ college days and started photography around the same time! Throughout the years, we’ve taken turns taking pictures of each other for our portfolios and I feel so lucky to have this talented girl as a friend. When I found out I was pregnant, I asked her to do my birth story and the day before I went into labor, she found out that she was pregnant with her first baby. It was so perfect!! I was able to repay the favor and planned to do her birth story as well.

BRIAHNNA & JERRY + BABY EDEN

Birth comes in so many beautiful forms and I was so excited to get to work with Briahnna and Jerry as they welcomed their daughter, Eden, with a water birth at Beautiful Mountain Birth Suites. This was my first unmedicated, water birth and I wish I could bottle up the feeling in that room and keep it with me every day. I found myself on the verge of tears through the whole process, for no reason except that there was an indescribable peaceful Spirit in the room.

DEMI & BLAKE + BABY MAUDE RAEN

Sometimes I look through my galleries and think "HOW IS THIS MY JOB? How am I so lucky to get to be a part of these huge moments in people's lives?". And just when I think doing weddings is the best thing in the world, I do a birth story and can't believe I get to be present during something so beautiful. Birth is not just exciting and joyous, but sacred and sobering. This little family is so special to me and I feel so blessed that I got to be present for their big day.

KENZIE & BRADEN: SAND DUNES MATERNITY SESSION

Bryan and I were lucky enough to have Kenz do our maternity pictures and birth story; the morning she came to the hospital for my birth was the day after she found out that she was pregnant so she got to have an up-close view of what would be happening to her in 9 months. Now I've had the honor of doing their maternity pictures and in just a few short weeks, I'll be doing her birth story! I can't wait to watch them become parents to a beautiful baby girl.
