Births are my favorite to photograph, but also the hardest! My goal with each birth is to capture the journey from the beginning of labor to the newborn checkup, making sure to document key moments like the intensity of labor pains, the exhilaration of baby being born, and the settling in to the new normal of having a newborn.

Each birth is different, and each person laboring has a different goal in mind as to what parts they want documented, so I do a pre-birth interview with every client to ensure I have their vision in mind.
