Those who have inspired me most excitedly throughout my life are individuals whose passion is not limited to the scope of their chosen career or craft, people who's creative energy is too pervasive to come from a single source, too expansive to be filtered through one particular form of expression. I strongly believe that I'm a better photographer for being desperately in love with traveling the world, making emotional connections, getting lost in the written word, and growing things in the earth. It's for this reason that I'm so excited to see how an evolving passion for supporting women in childbirth and motherhood will shape my work as a photographer.
This amazing couple invited me to witness and photograph the long labor of their first born. After laboring for more than twelve hours first at home and then at the hospital, they closed their birth story with an emergency C-section necessary to bring their beautiful baby boy into the world. I am in awe of the strength and bravery of this woman, and I am touched by the powerful team that her and her husband made in order to birth their baby. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to this beautiful family. I am endlessly grateful and so very strengthened by couples who welcome me into these intimate moments in their lives.
