Birth is a beautiful teacher. Like a true pioneer, a birthing woman travels into the unknown to bring her baby home to her arms. Each birth takes it's own unique twists and turns which unfold and blossom into a magnificent story to be told of a one of a kind human being. Childbirth holds our hands and walks us into the depths of our capability into the rawest love we have ever known.
Sometimes bringing our babies earthside happens so quickly and smoothly that all we can see is the support and miracle that is existence...and it's breathtaking.
We find ourselves fully immersed in the moment...feeling the pure joy that only new life can bring.
We reflect and tell our story to those who witnessed us from the outside, as though it were a dream.
And although the waves keep coming...
...we continue to bathe in the moment.
And when we find ourselves so very blessed, we are surrounded in loving support....
...so our main focus can be to cherish our new babies and try to memorize every little part that is sure to grow bigger entirely too quickly.
And when all is aligned, this new life doesn't even have to leave our reach...
And those caring for us love and admire our babies too.
And we will have the space...
...to fall in love all over again...
...and to bond.
What a beautiful life we live...what an amazing way to be welcomed to the world.
I am so many things...a mother, wife, daughter, sister, friend, and neighbor. I am a photographer, a birth doula, and an intuitive guidance coach. I am a consumer and an entreprenuer. I am a heARTIST creating visions of love and beauty through words, photographs, and heartfelt interactions and life experiences. I am a helper, an advocate for our most precious resource (our children), a supportive heart radiating, a woman who is teaching while she still attending the school of life and learning everyday. I feel...I cry, I smile, I yell, I laugh, I fear, I dance, I hide, I share, I shine so brightly...all in the many breaths of my days. I am a simply complex human being always seeking to live a life based in love and following my heART and soul's desire for expression and celebration. The moments when I recognize the miracle that is existing, breathing, and being surrounded by so many spirits and experiences to love and be grateful for are the ones I hold dear.
