The Boulder Homebirth of Nola

I met Amanda on a warm morning in the backyard of her house in Boulder. She was nearing the end of her first trimester, and when I looked at her, I could see the light in her eyes. She was so excited to meet her baby. Amanda and Mike knew what they wanted for their first birth: they wanted to be at home, they wanted to be surrounded by gentle support, they wanted Amanda's body to lead the way. And so eventually summer turned to winter, and before long we were nearing Amanda's due date. She went into labor and notified me that it might be a good time to head to Boulder. I got in my car and made the drive, imagining what I might find when I walked through their door. When I arrived, Amanda was laboring in the kitchen, her head resting against the cool tile floor. I put my camera bags down and observed her silently, marveling at her strength and beauty. Over the next few hours, she worked with such strength. As her contractions grew stronger, she relied on Mike, her partner, and her own inner wisdom. It didn't take long before she was pushing. And then....not long after that...her sweet baby girl was born. 

We were all in awe of the beauty of birth...of how gently little Nola had come into the world. The images I captured are some of my favorites. There are quiet moments, peaceful moments, intense moments, joyful moments. It was an honor to tell their story.
