Recently I spent nearly 2.5 weeks in Tennesse documenting the home birth arrival of a little chubby boy into his warm-hearted family. What an honour I have to be entrusted into such intimate times in peoples lives, seeing hearts unfold as a new life is welcomed. Finding that love & family are so very much the same no matter how far you travel.
This is a special birth video not because I travelled halfway around the world to document it but because it includes three parts, the waiting, the birthing and the welcoming of this sweet boy into his family. It was so special to be able to capture the magic of waiting for, birthing and enjoying a new baby and get to know Amelia and her family – now I feel like I’ve left some of my heart behind in Tennessee. This video is a little longer than my birth films usually are but it’s worth the little sit down with a cup of tea to watch and enjoy.
As always, I am honoured by Amelia’s openness to share her video & images from the birth of her sweet little boy with you all too.
