Cristina & Derek // Atlanta Birth Story

In editing these photos from the awe-inspiring birth of Cristina & Derek's baby girl, a quote from filmmaker, photographer and feminist Nadia Newman stood in my mind: True beauty is a woman using her platform to inspire, empower and uplift other women.

Thank you to Atlanta Birth Center for the incredible work you do for women in our community, and thank you to this amazing couple for welcoming me into such a sacred space and supporting me so lovingly in my aspirations as a birth worker. I'm endlessly grateful for those who invite me to witness and document such tender and life-changing moments as this.
