“I knew when I met you
an adventure was going to happen.”

A. A. Milne

There’s nothing like the birth of a child to make the whole world seem brand new.

Three weeks ago, on March 12, 2016, Baby Jack finally joined our family. He was born at home after a quick and powerful labor, surrounded by his loving family and a spectacular birth team. (You can read Jack’s birth story on our photographer’s blog.)

Jack’s birth was deeply transformative for me. The brief few hours it took to bring Jack into the world brought healing and closure to the parts of me that had been left raw and vulnerable following my first son’s birth. This time around, I came face to face with my own incredible power.

The beginning of this chapter is filled with all kinds of hopes and dreams. I’m so grateful for the birth experience I had with Jack; I know it will be a source of strength for years to come.

Welcome to our big, beautiful world, Jack!
