i absolutely love birth stories as you know, and i especially enjoyed  being at this second birth with these new friends. Peaceful and filled with  loving grandparents and a best friend is how i would describe it.

second babies are awesome.  i know mine was!   being second in the family is always an interesting spot.  i was much more relaxed as a parent the second time around. enjoy the 90 second video highlighting their day. ~laura

preparing siblings to meet their new baby is always fun and i love watching these first reactions.  you can read more here about 5 tips for preparing your children to meet their new baby.

    Aw, so great that this baby had some skin-on-skin time with their father while mom was still recovering from her C-section. Beautiful photography from the day this sweet baby was born!

    Birth photography is so incredibly special. It takes such dedication and love from the photographer to capture these beautiful moments of a families new baby entering the world. I love the one of the big brother getting closer to see his new sister. The lighting is absolutely beautiful!

    I really like the your photography workshop post, it would be great a for a beginner to learn the tips and tricks from a professional. Do you offer workshops on being a birth photographer? I could see a lot of new photographers looking to get into that field and work with families.
