When I was given the opportunity to photograph an at home water birth, I jumped at it. I had photographed hospital births before, but never a home delivery! I met Ylsa a few years ago when I did her 1st son’s birthday photos. Our client photographer relationship quickly turned into a friendship. A couple of years later, I was hired to photograph her 2nd son’s maternity/newborn photos and we stayed in touch as friends ever since. Shortly there after, she was pregnant with her 3rd baby and they kept the sex a mystery! I was so excited that we were going to find out when the baby was born at home, in the tub! Each of the following photos tells a story. A story of love, faith, family, & courage. I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I did capturing them!

I was so excited for my bff of over 10 years when she asked me to be part of her big day! Baby Kayden has been dreamed of for years and it was so special being able to watch her be born! My friend had planned a home water birth, but baby girl wasn’t dropping, so off to the hospital she went! After the epidural, that she also didn’t want, her body was able to relax and her little baby girl came out in just a few pushes! It goes to show that everything doesn’t always go as “planned”, but in the long run all that matters is getting your baby earth side safely!
It was such a special day, being there for my sweet friend as she was about to welcome her baby girl into this world. I have never met a couple as tender and loving with each other as these two. Watching them become parents, right before my eyes, was absolutely breath taking. By the end, there was not a dry eye in the room!
