of love and light…

September 7, 2012

It was awhile back and I never shared the images from that night…there are lots of births that stay hidden in little pockets of my soul. Some are just too private, some need to be held tightly and others just aren’t ready for the light. Each birth has a path and a call…it is really important to follow it, wherever it leads…it knows just where to go (or not go).

It takes courage to share one of your most vulnerable moments with strangers, with the world. I am always amazed and honored when the dear folks I get to work with decide sharing is part of their birth path. I never expect them to, but am happy if they want to.

J & S leaned into love that night…and held each other and that birth tightly…and now it is ready to be shared. Thank you guys, the depth and beauty of your love birthed that sweet baby. It was an honor to witness.

    Oh, my. Looks like such a blissful birth, and that last image of the little eye peeking at you is just too dear for words.

    Every time I see your birth photos, I wish you had been there to document my births.

    Amazing. It’s take a certain type of person that can take capture and event in pictures and show all the emotions flowing in the room. You are an exceptional photographer Patience. You are just exceptional period! These pictures fill me with awe and love. Thank this dear couple for sharing their experience with all of us!

      And maybe someday I’ll learn to read what I write before posting… It takes a certain type of person that can capture an event in pictures…
