Attending a birth as a doula is amazing and attending a birth as a photographer is amazing, but doing both and for a close family member is incredible!
Emily is my sister-in-law, my husband's youngest sibling. I have know her for over 13 years now, watched her grow from the young girl she was when we first met to the amazing woman she is today.
She has a wonderful partner in life, her husband Travis - they are such a great team and watching them welcome their first child into the world has been such a wonderful experience.
I am so blessed that they trusted me to be there with them, to take photos and to help support them as their doula.
While in labour Emily found strength she didn't know she had - she trusted her body and birthed her baby with such power, determination and love. Travis was an amazing birth partner - calm, supportive and caring.
You both did so wonderfully and I am so happy for you <3
Welcome to the world baby Jack - you are so loved!
