These kids may be my most photographed kids, my own excluded. Their mother Margaret was one of my first friends here in Los Angeles. We met at a quilting club. My son Lex was about 2 months old, her son Runner just a few weeks. After a minute of talking we found we had much in common. Both having just had a homebirth = instant friends. haha A short time later she invited me to attend the homebirth of her second son Emerson. After a few years, many play dates, a few photoshoots, and a birth.. I present you with their latest family photos! Thank you my sweet friend for trusting me with capturing your family so often!
The moment I met these two moms I instantly fell in love. Their home, their yard, their story, their overflowing love for each other. Soft spoken, gentle and kind. I wrote a little about that first meeting HERE. That is where you will also find their maternity photos.
When I arrived for the birth, I walked into their home and it was empty. I looked around to find everyone was in the back yard garden. Jody was quietly laboring on a birthing ball, her wife by her side. Her midwife and doula close by looked up at me with calming smiles while Hypnobabies played in the background.
I had just walked into a magical birthing garden. :::swoon:::
I am so honored to have been invited to welcome baby Soren into the world. I have been to many births, never before have I been so emotional at a birth. I teared up more times than I can remember and was in full on tears at times, overjoyed with all the beauty and love. I can not wait to watch this family grow and take many more photos of their life.
This birth was also attended by Becca Gorden of Two Doulas Birth, Sue Wolcott of Shasta Midvies, and Abigail Morgan of Float Chinese Medical Arts
