Some of my dearest friends gave birth to their sweet baby boy a few weeks ago. Sam is one lucky boy to be growing up with parents like these. I got to shoot this with my friend Tina at Loveridge Photography--she's amazing so go check her work out...after you check out these photos :) More under Galleries>Babies & Kids.
Nothing trips me out more than birth. In a good way. I'm the kind of person who watches births on youtube and cries. Before I had kids they were tears of fear and anxiety. But now, joy. There's really nothing like watching someone be born. I've been so lucky to have been able to see my dear friend Anna's last 3 births. She just bore her 8th child, Basil, a few weeks ago. It was a beautiful, quick-ish (for her) and intense, as most births get near the end. But she has so much support from her family, friends and her midwife team, it makes the whole process go that much smoother. And the love in the room, it was palpable. I was honored to be there. Thank you Anna.
YAY!!! If you can believe it, Holly is 37 weeks in these photos! She's just beautiful. I was so excited to do these, seeing that I shot their wedding in Carmel last fall AND this was my first shoot since November.
