What can I possibly even say about this?To witness someone's entrance into this world is such an incredibly powerful thing. To document that for a family is one of the very coolest things about my job. I feel so very lucky to have been part of this. I choked back tears more than once while shooting this.
Calder arrived on January 30th, at The Palms Birth House in Delray Beach, FL. He was born peacefully in water, into the loving arms of his awesome parents, Sonia and Eric. Sonia seriously rocked her labor, and this sweet boy is healthy and very well-loved. The team of women who supported them during labor and delivery were seriously amazing. After my own two home births, I have so much love and respect for midwives and doulas, and watching them work from the perspective of not being the laboring mama was very cool indeed.
Welcome to the world, baby boy!
