I don’t often get the opportunity to photograph a birth just because of the unpredictable nature of most births, but every single one is an absolute honor to be at! This one was certainly no exception, if not even more as this was the birth of Miss Moxie Blythe Hamilton, my greatest and longest friends Justin & Laura’s 6th little blessing! A little side note: my maiden name is Blythe… huge, huge, mega awesome surprise when they told me during the birth that was her middle name! What. An. Honor!!! I am so lucky to have these friends that I call family! Anyway, back to the birth story ;)… Just Mom, Dad & I were at the house on this quiet evening and things progressed fairly quickly, in fact so quickly and smoothly that I didn’t even realize Laura was pushing until she pulled her little darling up from the water! Moxie was born at home peacefully into her mama’s arms around 2am on March 28th. She was mama’s 4th unassisted home birth (the 3rd one I’ve been blessed to attend, one of them I missed by just 7 minutes!) and just the most precious little thing ever! Thank you so much to Laura & Justin for inviting me to be with you on this very special day! I love you guys!!
