I took a trip out to the country for the sweet birth of this little boy! It was great spending time with these midwives (June was at my youngest's birth and Mandy is such a sweet midwife) and I was excited to work for this amazing family. Mama is a photographer and had dreamt up a truly beautiful space to labor alongside her loving husband and sweet girls. I've never seen flowers in the tub! Their farm was the perfect place for a quiet home birth. They had a very long day but their faith and strength were unwavering. Welcome to the world, golden boy!

Even the kitties were keeping close

Happy birthday, little one!

And then they really fell in love!

Look at all the love I was born into!
