Ever since my own first birth I have been in awe of labor. This love drives deeper and deeper into my soul with every birth I witness. Women are in their most powerful and vulnerable moments all at the same time. The strength and bravery of women going through such a miraculous journey always amazes me. Heather was no exception.

I had the pleasure of photographing and assisting at the birth of this beautiful little boy. His mama was a fighter! With help from her supportive husband and midwife, she focused on her breathing and within 40 minutes of me arriving she pushed out her son, Liam.
