Colorado Springs Home Birth || Welcome Evangeline


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.

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! 
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 Minutes with Her Toothbrush
It's been a while since I blogged a 5-minute-project - but Christmas break means time to work on my own projects and that usually translates into sharing a few photos of my own kiddos with you! Be honest, you probably don't spend 5 minutes with your toothbrush do you? But miss Geneva does. In fact, she'll spend 30 minutes brushing her teeth - three times a day - if I let her! Here's just five minutes of her little hygiene routine.
