I always feel a strong connection with my portrait clients who have home births. Having birthed all of my three kids at home, I know what a beautiful and empowering experience homebirth is, and I love it when I can share that experience with other families. This family just welcomed into their lives sweet baby Oliver, who was born at their beautiful home in Minneapolis. The midwives from Health Foundations attended their birth, and I cannot recommend Amy and her team of midwives highly enough. If you're considering birthing at home or in a birth center, please check out the Health Foundations website.
I came out to their home when baby Oliver was just six days old, and captured some images of their newly expanded family. Big sister Norah was sweet as ever (see how she stole the show at her maternity photo session here!), and baby Oliver was just a dream to photograph. Such a lovely newborn session. I'm quite sure that I have the best job in the whole world. Lucky, lucky me. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to photograph your sweet family!
