Birth Story: Kristina + Matt

Wesley Matthew | May 12th | 12:50 am | 7 lbs 2oz | 20 inches

What a night! I left the house at 11:30 pm and was back home and in bed by 3 am. Sweet Kristina's labor was slow going until it wasn't. By the time I arrived, things were fast and furious and she was such a trooper. She went from a 7 to a 10 in about 30 minutes and pushed that baby out in 5 minutes flat. I love how expressive everyone in the room was -- her grandma breaking down during a particularly intense moment, Matt's look of love when he first laid eyes on his baby, and Kristina's awe upon seeing her placenta!

Welcome to the world, Wesley! We're so glad you're here.

In Review: November 2016 through March 2017

What a random collection of months, eh? This was originally going to be a birthday post: a collection of my favorite images from my first few months as a birth photographer starting back in November and going into March. It still is a collection of my favorites, of course, but I'm posting it a few weeks before my birthday because, well, it's my blog and I do what I want. I included a small caption on each image and, while I wish I had insightful things to say about each of these photographs, what I mostly have to say is, "Eeeeee! Baby! Cuuuuute!". I so enjoyed making these images, I'm looking forward to capturing more birth stories for families in Minneapolis and St. Paul, and I hope looking at these photos gives you a bit of insight into why I love doing what I do. 

xo,
