When This mama called me and asked me to attend her birth I was beyond excited! You see, I attended her first birth 3 years ago. To be invited back for her next birth was a great honor!
Photographing her husband, son and family friend support her through her birth was so powerful. They had made that little birthing room at Kaiser their home for the evening. The room was filled with smiles, music, toy cars... you know, all the things you need at your birth!
I can not wait to photograph sweet London as he grows up just like I have his big brother Sydney!
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

A beautiful second home birth in West Hollywood. This mama inspired me and showed me true strength and beauty in her silence during the birth of her sweet baby girl. I am so honored to be able to watch this family grow. This is what home birth looks like ♥
