A home birth was the only kind I had not documented, so when I finally got the opportunity to do one, I also wanted to shoot a home visit with the midwives. I love the relaxed atmosphere you find yourself in when the visit is at home vs clinic. Your kids can be there and have all their toys readily available. This was also the first time I got to meet Marla Hicks, after having heard so much about her. After this home visit, I was so excited for Eleanor’s labor, and looked forward to witnessing the incredible work of midwives in action!

Birth and Sweet Beginnings pictures coming soon!

Last November, for the first time ever, we had family pictures taken! I know, I know, shame on me for waiting until my kids were 15 and 10, right? I wanted to finally send out Christmas cards with all of us on there. My friend Merrilee, of Photography by Merrilee, graced us with her talent, and off we went to Marian Bear Park in Clairemont, late afternoon on a Saturday. It was hard at first, being  on the other side of the camera for a change, but Merrilee has a knack of making you feel comfortable and relaxed. She was so sweet and kept wanting to show me the back of her camera for me to see some of the shots, and I kept declining. I REALLY wanted to be surprised, and not have any preconceived notions about how our images might look. I was so happy I waited, the anticipation was thrilling, and Merrilee didn’t disappoint! Same time, next year?????

Thank you, my friend, for giving us these incredible images of our family, to treasure forever!
