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!
