Since it's this baby's time to come soon, I thought I'd share some sweet moments we captured of Krystal and her bump a few weeks back. This baby better get ready, it has a big sweet family waiting to love on it. I can't wait to meet this little one!
Krystal and Ben are the sweetest couple, it was so much fun photographing some moments between them before their baby arrives next month! They are going to be such wonderful parents -- it's my pleasure to share with you some of my favorites from their session!
"Whenever and however you intend to give birth, your experience will impact your emotions, your mind, your body and your spirit for the rest of your life." -Ina May Gaskin
The whole point of woman-centered birth is the knowledge that a woman is the birth power source. She may need, and deserve, help, but in essence, she always had, currently has, and will have the power. -Heather McCue
A huge shout out to Generations OB/GYN in Fayetteville, TN. Dr. Evitt, Sherri Franklin, CNM, Nurse Debbie, along with the entire staff was beyond amazing with Vannessa and Archer. If you're between South Nashville & Huntsville, please consider this small, women-centered practice. The whole team worked so well together to help Vannessa bring sweet Archer into the world.
As birth photographers, we're blessed to be invited into peoples space while they bring a new life into the world. This is not something we take lightly and each birth makes a little mark on our hearts. Some births, however, just change you a little bit. Caleb's was one of them for me.
There was something about Rachel & Jimmy. They were the epitome of a team during Caleb's birth. Rachel labored beautifully - with strength and grace. Jimmy was a strong anchor of support and Margaret at Baby + Co. was a calm, reassuring presence and a watchful eye.
Even when things got difficult, everyone worked as a team to bring sweet Caleb into this world. Loving hands surrounding them all.
When Vannessa and I decided to photograph her maternity pictures on her family's farm in Kentucky, I was pretty darn excited. I'm a big sentimental sap so the idea of photographing this special time in her life in the same fields she ran around in with her brother, sister & cousins really pulled at my heart strings. The Farm means so much to her and her family, and if you've ever been there -- you'll understand why. Not only is it beautiful, but you instantly feel welcomed. There's always someone feeding you, groups singing and playing guitar, or children laughing. It's easy to see why they cherish it so much. Archer sure is a lucky boy to be coming into a family like theirs!
