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.

Colorado Springs Lifestyle Newborn Session || The Osburn Family
It is truly amazing to be given the honor of capturing a family as they grow and change. This year, I got to capture the Osburn family while they anticipated their little one's arrival, as they welcomed Evangeline into the world, and then finally during a lifestyle newborn session when sweet Evan was just three weeks old. There's nothing like a household that has just welcomed a new baby. The changing and feeding and crying is all a part of the day-to-day - and so is the snuggling and kissing and shushing. Add in two very excited older siblings and, well, there's just a lot of energy in the house. That sweet newborn phase - it's hard an ...

Newborn Dorothy
I introduced you to miss Dorothy Hazel a couple of weeks ago, and today I'm excited to show you her newborn photos. Now here's the thing about miss Dorothy - Dorothy is baby number 3. 3! And the thing about being baby number 3 is that there's no time to lay around looking serene and sleepy in a little basket. No way. Baby number 3 jumps right into all the motion and commotion that is created by older siblings. I loved the way Dorothy's newborn shoot incorporated the way that her life - her family's life - really is right now. It's exciting and high energy and everyone is excited to have her join in the fun! We jumped on the bed, scrambl ...

Five Minute Project || Waking the Baby One Year Later
The other morning - at 6:45am - my littles were being especially sweet and I couldn't resist the opportunity to sneak in and complete a little 5 minute project photo session with them. These photos were taken almost exactly one year after the photos from this post - and I really can't believe the difference that one year makes. These two little ones have certainly changed in that short year, but I can honestly say that they still adore each other as much as they did one year ago. Briggs still loves to sneak in a greet his sister as soon as he hears her stirring and he often insists that he must be the one to give her her first kiss of the ...
