I don’t consider myself a birth photographer, but when your friend of 20+ years asks if you’ll photograph her water birth, you say yes.
I left my house at 6 a.m. and witnessed the miracle of childbirth. I’m completely honored that I was asked to document such an incredible moment for Jana + Ryan. The “peaceful chaos” as Jana described it was beautiful. I loved how natural everything was.
After things settled down a bit and Wakelyn’s measurements were taken, Jana’s midwife, Charlotte, made her an herbal bath that was meant to aid in healing. I’ve been wanting to do a shoot in her bathroom ever since she showed it to me when they were building their house. Well, I finally got my opportunity and it didn’t disappoint. The Flower Post provided the beautiful flowers.
I’m so thankful I was able to be a part of this eye opening experience. Life is so beautiful. Welcome to the world Wakelyn.
The world is your oyster little one.
