As a birth photographer, I’ve captured over 125 births since having my first daughter. Each story I documented was as unique as the woman I worked with; the myriad of birth stories I saw reminded me that life is full of both unforeseen turns and unimaginable beauty. I sat beside many of my clients as they saw their birth plans change drastically, and I witnessed the strength that women possess when they’re asked to do something that perhaps they had previously thought impossible. After I sent off an edited gallery of images or when I met with a client for the very first time, I found myself thinking how blessed I was to have found a calling that demonstrated the immense power of womanhood and sisterhood again and again.
