candid shots

Last week our family had an opportunity to be a part of an outdoor photo shoot at sunset. Who would turn such an offer away? Not us.

I first met this amazing photographer through networking in the birth community in Connecticut. She is a birth photographer and I am a birth doula. Our roles outside of motherhood are certainly related in that we both get called out in the middle of the night to attend other families births.

It is such an amazing opportunity and honor to be a part of these events. And although we are both participating in the birth experience in different ways (she snapping photos and me squeezing hips), we both get to share in the joy of a new life entering the world.

In short, I am thrilled to have met her. Oh, and the neatest part of all is that it turns out that we are neighbors!

I wanted to share a few of our favorite photos. We L O V E these very candid shots of the different dynamics and relationships within our little family. We hope that you love them too.
