There was something about Joe and Claire that clicked from the moment I met them. They were easy to talk to, and the most excited first time parents I had ever met with. They shared how much the valued having their birth story documented and their plans to bring their baby into the world together; the more we talked the more excited I grew about being able to document that special day for them.
When I arrived at their home on a chilly February morning, I was greeted with smiles from both them and the other members of their birth team. The joy in the room was palpable and watching Joe and Claire as they worked to bring their little one earth side was one of the most amazing journeys I’ve witnessed in my time as a birth photographer. Joe was so in sync with Claire and the support she needed from him, and she was so calm and confident in her body as she labored. They waited to find out their baby’s gender and the moment Joe looked up at Claire and said “we have a son!” brought tears to my eyes! Here are just a few of my favorites!
