(Some of) My Favorite Birth Images from 2017
When I sat down to this task, I knew it would be difficult...but I had NO IDEA how hard it was to choose just 20 of my favorite birth images from 2017. Every birth that I attend is profound, and I walk away from each one with images that speak to my heart. So after literally an hour (and dozens upon dozens of "favorites") I knew I needed to make progress on this impossible project. And so I randomly selected these 21 from my extensive list of favorites, and I'm so honored to share them with you. Some of my families choose to keep their birth images completely private, while others have allowed me to share. I'm so honored to be invited into these spaces, and then to share these stories with the larger world. 2017 was a beautiful year, full of homebirths, birth center births, and hospital births. I got to document so much love, so much strength, and so much joy. These babies and families will stay with me forever. Many of the images below are actually repeat clients, which is so special (and is happening more and more each year!).
I hope you enjoy looking at these, and I hope you connect with one or two of them deeply. I hope that they allow you to tap into something deeper about yourself, your journey, your family. And I wish you and your family the happiest holidays and a joy-filled New Year!
