A big Thank You!

I’ve just wrapped three births in the past two weeks. As I catch up on life, {and take a breath!} I realize just how life-changing this experience to serve women is, and what a positive impact I can attribute to woman’s lives, to their partner’s lives, and to the extended families.

To see the pure joy in the room; a child is born. New life. A fresh start. It’s exhilarating to say the least, what an honor to be in such a sacred circle. Thank you to my past, current and future client’s. You are all amazing and inspiring!

Introducing ::: Benjamin Bao!

This family has been enthusiastic from the first moment I met up with them. Welcoming me into their home, and sharing with me their wishes and desires for their child’s ideal birth. I would like to warmly congratulate the glowing first-time parents! I hope you enjoy these photo’s as much as I have editing each frame, and bringing me back to their birth time after time. On August 14th, at 7:27 am, Benjamin Bao was born. Weighing in at 7lbs and 2.8 ounces, 20 inches long!

Some classical music streaming to lighten the mood.

Some mommy and daddy skin to skin time!

More love from the proud papa…

Congratulations Lam and Azar!

Introducing ::: Grace Angell!

This child arrived with grace. It’s no surprise her name was chosen perfectly. She also took her sweet, sweet time { 😉 } to make a grand entrance, just in the nick of time for her birth day; arriving at 11:54pm on July 12th, 2011. A six pound 4 ounce bundle of goodness stretching 19 and three-quarters inches.

Please help me welcome baby Grace Angell to the world! Congratulations to her proud parents, and adorable big brother Samuel.
