Fall Water Baby



I had the honor of serving this family not only as their photographer, but also as their doula. Early on a beautiful Fall morning, this mama’s labor hit her fast and strong. She labored in the bathtub with morning light pouring in and windows open to feel the Fall breeze and birds chirping.

After a pretty quick and hard labor, baby was born in the water at home surrounded by a strong mama and lots and lots of love.

He took it like a champ and got through it right by her side! JaHi Blog Page 4JaHi Blog Page 5And, then there was a sweet baby boy. JaHi Blog Page 6This is my favorite moment at a birth. The look of accomplishment and relief in a new mother’s face. Just priceless. JaHi Blog Page 7JaHi Blog Page 8Grandma may have snuck in to catch baby’s arrival :) JaHi Blog Page 9JaHi Blog Page 10JaHi Blog Page 11JaHi Blog Page 12Finally, it was time for the new big brother to come meet his baby!
