After giving birth to my sweet daughter a little over a week ago, I’ve finally had time to process the intense experience. It was everything I’d imagined: grueling, emotional and incredibly trying, but nothing compared to the moment our daughter was born and the peace that surrounded our home during that beautiful two-day birth. My sweet friend Betsy King offered to photograph the experience, and I’m so grateful for these beautiful photos below. Births are magical no matter where they take place, and I’m so thrilled to be able to share mine right here.
