Colorado Springs Home Birth || Welcome Evangeline

Lifestyle

I’ve been anticipating the arrival of this little one for months – and when her mama asked me to be there for her Colorado Springs home birth, I was over the moon!

For WEEKS I sprinted to my phone every time it rang and slept with it right next to my pillow. So when Emily called me just after midnight on March 23, I was pretty much half way out the door before she even told me she was in labor.

Emily, the world’s most fabulous doula, knows a lot about birth and babies. She’s helped many, many moms and dads bring their little ones into the world. I was so honored and excited to be a part of the team of people that would be there for her as she welcomed her own little girl.  She chose a home birth and was attended by her wise and compassionate midwife, Tara, her husband, her sister, and two friends.

Emily labored all night and Evangeline Kindle Mary Osburn was born just as the sun was rising — and at the very beginning of one of Colorado Springs’s most epic blizzards!

I love this family and am excited to watch Evangeline grow up alongside her bother and sister and alongside my own two kids.

Dorothy Hazel [Just Brand New]
When Holly and Dave invited me to photograph the birth of their third baby, I was beyond thrilled. I can think of few other times more intense and intimate than the day a family grows by one. I was more than honored and excited to be a part of this occasion. BUT, when Holly texted me to say that she was in labor, I inconveniently found myself on the wrong side of the mountains. I was more than two hours away - having snuck away with Mark to celebrate our 11th wedding anniversary - and I told him to put the pedal to the metal. Had this birth been anything like big sister Olive's, I would have had all night to get there. But, Miss Dorothy ...

The Masuen Family [with a good book]
Just after moving into their new home, the Masuen Family decided on an at-home photo shoot to celebrate this fun milestone in their lives. I loved catching just a glimpse of their day-to-day routine and just watching them be a family! Mr. Myles is fully two and certainly practiced his independence. We even took a little walk down the sidewalk together during which he showed me lots of personality. And those curls. Just amazing! Thank you, Masuen family, for letting me into your home and your lives. You are a beautiful family!

Miss Geneva [First Month of Life]
I promise I won't give you a month-by-month play of my child's life. But this first month, you guys. Oh my gosh. So sweet and tender and snuggly and full of newness. I just had to share. And if you make it all the way through this photo overload, there might just be something in it for ya. If you're up for a little contest that is.Okay, now for the contest. Wanna play? I'd like you to take a guess at how many photos I took of this babe during her first month of life. Just take a stab at it. Then head over to my Good Photo Facebook Page, like that page, and then post your guess in the comments of the link to this blog post. The person ...
