Whoop! It’s 2016. Is anyone else as excited about that as me? I love new years and fresh starts. I wrote out a huge list of goals for this year. One of those is to actually participate in and complete a Project 365, which ends up being 366 this year. Outside of births and family videos, I’ve avoided touching my big camera for awhile now. But I’ve noticed that has made my creativity wane a bit and even though video has my heart, I need to work on challenging myself with photos again. And I’ve had some moments of “Good grief, my babies aren’t babies anymore”. I don’t want to forget anything, and Lord knows I’m not so great at documenting events with words.

One of my other goals is to blog more. I had big ideas to do that last year, but with almost half of my birth photography and a couple family sessions being private, that led to some pretty quiet months here. So I’ve decided that every Sunday, I’ll blog my project photos from that week. If you are also participating in Project 366, please leave a link! I would love to stalk check out your photos!

This home birth was absolutely beautiful. Mom labored quietly in bed, breathing calm and deep. At times, you would think she was sleeping peacefully. Colorado Home Birth

When she moved to the bathroom before heading to the birthing tub, things began picking up. But once in the tub, it seemed the calm washed over her again. Her breathing was determined and steady, but there was hardly a sound. Her amazing doula, who had been with her through each of her previous 3 births, knew exactly what she needed to hear. Dad joined her in the water so she could rest against him (and help plug the hole that had popped the inner lining! whoops!) Big sister joined the birth team, even though it was 1 a.m. by this time. She was so sweet, watching and loving on her mom.

Things became super quiet and calm for awhile. No one was speaking. The only sound in the room was mom’s intermittent deep breathing. Then suddenly, she let out a loud yell and was pushing. Everyone jumped to their position and only moments later, a beautiful little girl was born. Big sister saw it all and was beside herself with excitement!

The next hour was spent feeding baby, snuggles and quiet time. Then measurements were taken, baby checked out as perfect and everyone slipped out into the night to let the new family of 6 rest. The next day, it was so adorable to see each older sibling loving on the newest member of their family, showering her with kisses and all trying to come up with a name for her. That wasn’t decided for the next couple days however, when the text came through, “She has a name! Lennon Mae :)” Swoon….
