I struggle to capture my emotions when I’m describing watching a dear friend go through something as transformative as birth. Every birth I photograph is deeply meaningful to me, but some are lodged a little deeper in my heart. This is one of those. These people have walked alongside us through some of our darkest moments, and some of our best, and it’s a huge honor to do the same for them.
So I’ll let the images speak for themselves.
