Braggy aunt alert! My nephew is super cute and his mom (my only sister) kicked birth’s ass. He’s now 4 days old and even cuter than he was on days 1,2 and 3. I’m so thankful I was able to be here for the occasion, that she had the support of friends and family and that everything went as well as it did. One of my greatest dreams and goals is to be able to shoot birth stories all over the world.
Nothing is more beautiful and powerful to me than the birth of a child and there’s nothing I love more than telling a story with photography. My hope is to one day to be able to capture the story of a hundred different births and show the beauty in all of the pain. The joy in all of the misery.
Of all the births I’ve photographed, or will photograph, none will ever be as near and dear to me as the birth of my sister’s first son and only nephew on my side of the family.
While parts of my mourns the fact that I didn’t have a photographer at my own birth, I’m so thankful it’s a gift and talent I can share with others.
