entering the world at home

This was my first time taking part in a home birth and words can not express the raw beautiful nature of witnessing this incredible event. Her courage, his profound loving support, the caring and gentle guidance of the mid wife, the very curious and patient son who was waiting to meet his sister or brother and the daughter who shared her mother’s breast milk with her new born sister is what made this story unfold. I am honored to have been invited as a friend and as the photographer who witnessed and captured this story on camera. In Spanish we say dando luz “giving light” and Marie gave an abundant amount of light by bringing a new life into her home.
