village looks like extended family.

village. tribe.  community.  these are the words i would use to describe this child’s extended family.  you’ve heard it said that it takes a village to raise a child.  well, THIS child has a village to help raise him.  moms, grandmas, great grandmas, friends that feel like family and act like it too.

 when i was visiting this last time, i overheard them talking and they refer to him using the word prince!

this story is what a documentary fresh 48 session looks like when the baby leaves the birth hospital to go to the nicu hospital and finally comes home.  some of the village visited with the baby in the hospital every day and some nights, while others stayed with the recovering mom after her c-section.  no one slept much those first two weeks.  no one.

a former labor and delivery nurse of 25 years, I am now working as a hospital/home birth documentary photographer in southwest Virginia and loving it.  being back in the birthing room feels like coming home.  quiet, calm, and confident in the birthing room, I can anticipate the events and therefore, I am an excellent choice for photographing the birth of your baby.
