The Birth of Miles

I was excited about this family's VBAC since they hired me last year. There's always a part of me that roots a tiny bit more for a VBAC mom. Birth is hard no matter which way you perform it, but there's a different sort of mental hurdle that VBAC mom's have to face. I get that. So when they called to tell me that they were in active, I let out an excited "YAYY!" while on the phone with my clients husband. I remember getting off the phone thinking "He must think I'm a nut". I had a LOT of fun at this birth, more than I feel like I should have. I left feeling like a member of this family. I left not wanting it to end. I left so glad that this beautiful family chose me to photograph their awesome VBAC and birth of their wonderful new baby boy. I left glad that I got to be near the midwife who birthed my own two children. This was a team of champions. It was such an enjoyable experience all around.

Take a look!

The Oyakawa Family

These are my people's! This family of 8 is a big ole group of awesomeness. Mom Oyakawa is a friend I met through an online group and we've formed quite a friendship over the last year and some change. She wanted to make some New Years cards for friends and family, so we got together for a little shoot.

The Super Family Mini Session

I love this family so dang much! I photographed the birth of their third baby last year and I was really excited to do this mini session with them. I love seeing babies I've photographed get bigger and grow. I can't believe how big baby Lane has gotten! Not only is he adorable, but so are Lane's older brothers. All together, they really are a super family and their shirts couldn't be more fitting.
