This amazing birth mom delivered her child at home. When she called and asked me to photograph the placement, I felt honored to be apart of this, as I do with all my placement shoots. There are so many emotions that day for all involved. These sessions are completely different for me than my normal sessions.

This particular day was overcast and BEAUTIFUL outside. So around 2pm we went outside and I was able to capture some time with this beautiful birth mom and her baby. It was fun to get some pictures with her mom that had flown in from out of town along with her two children and their dog. You are an amazing person sweetie and I felt honored to get to know you. Thank you for letting me capture such a sacred, emotional time in your life. All my love….
