The Denver Homebirth of Hazel

I first met Leah at a mutual client's birth a couple of years ago. As our client worked through intense and building contractions, I watched Leah's presence transform the room. She was gentle yet strong. She exuded peace. She was an amazing doula and person. It didn't take much time with her to see and feel the light she exuded to the world. 

When she reached out several months later about birth photography, I couldn't wait to document her story. And then we learned that she lost her baby. Micah. There aren't words for this type of loss. 

And so Leah, her family, and her friends processed and prayed. I cried when she reached out to me again. I heard the hope and the longing. I knew this baby would be welcomed into the world with such love, with such joy, and with such longing. 

Leah's birth earlier this month was beautiful. Peaceful. Full of tears and laughter. Cleansed with an afternoon rainstorm. I saw her strength and peace once again. I felt her light exude through her house. She gave birth to a girl...after three boys...a beautiful baby girl. Hazel, you are surrounded by such love and joy. Welcome to our world.

The Denver Homebirth of Nathaniel in Stills and Film

There is nothing better than joining a family for not one but two of their births. I had the honor of photographing Whitney's first birth at Rose Hospital in 2014 and then her second birth at home just last week. Whitney and David are some of the strongest and most compassionate people I know. Their home and their lives radiate a deep love for each other, for their family, and for their faith. Whitney is a talented Denver videographer and decided that she really wanted a birth film to capture her story this time. I'm thrilled to share it with you all today...as well as a few of my favorite images from her incredible birth story.
