We were anticipating an early and possibly quick delivery with our rainbow baby. But never could have imagined how early and how quickly. This is Austin's story.

Austin's due date was May 10th, 2020, Mother's Day. Due to my history of preterm labor and delivery and this being my fourth pregnancy, my OB had taken all precautions to prevent an early baby. From multiple doctor visits...

I am letting the Dads take over this blog and tell you in their own words, what having a birth photographer is like. Enjoy!

My experience with Nicole as a birth photographer is an amazing one. My initial thoughts of having a birth photographer was more of an excitement for my wife, and not for myself. I figured there would just be some great photos. Not to mention, quite a bit of...

I love birth. I picked up a book on natural child birth when I was pregnant with my first baby, at the age of 22, and ever since then I have been fascinated with every aspect of it. After I gave birth to my first baby (Charlotte), an unmedicated hospital birth with an OB, I couldn’t wait to do it again. In fact I became a certified birth doula during that time, because I loved it...

I have had some moms recently reach out so excited about getting birth photos, only to come back and say their hubby's aren't on board. As a mama myself, I have had both births. One with an epidural in the hospital and one at home unmedicated and I remember pretty much zilch from either one. This is why I love birth photography. The reason moms want this, is because when we are i...

Oh my sweet baby boy, where do I begin?

As we celebrate your first birthday today, I find myself reflecting on our journey together. I loved being pregnant with you, watching my body change as you grew inside me, listening to your heartbeat at each check-up, and feeling you move around. Feeling you every day was absolutely my favorite part of our early time together. The first tim...

When I found out in November 2017 that I was pregnant with our second baby, my brain couldn’t fathom how, exactly, I could love another child as much as our first born, Myles. Lots of people told me your heart just grows and I believed them. But I had no idea how. I just couldn’t picture it. But that’s truly what happens. It’s like Dr. Seuss’s Grinch when his heart grows in size...

Oh Felix, I did not know what to expect going into labor with you. Your sister’s births were so different from one another.  I daydreamed constantly of your birth and how it would unfold.  Some dreams were easy and light and other dreams, I would let the fear creep in.  I knew our process would fall somewhere on the spectrum between birth one and two, I just wasn’t quite sure how...

In general, I am very regimented. From the get-go, my life plan was to get good grades, attend and graduate college, establish a career, get married, buy a house, and FINALLY become a mommy - preferably to more than one. So there was always a lot of future thinking and planning ahead for the next big step. I know, BASIC. Oh yeah, and I wanted to be a young mom, too. My husband, A...
