Kim was my guiding light when I was first expecting. She had the deets on everything I needed to know, from how to set up a birth tub to adding bendy-straws to my birth kit. How grateful I was for the love and the knowledge she passed my way! She also snapped so many wonderful photos for me the day of. What a gift: for the first time in my life I really SAW myself. I was prouder than I had ever been of my body, who I was, and what I had done. Yes, Kim is one of the very reasons I love what I do now. So when she asked me to photograph her second homebirth, I was over the moon!
On Nov. 6, 2014, Amelya decided to make her beautiful debut, surrounded by so much love.
Dear Amelya: I wish that you may always be surrounded by a such an amazing circle of support. Your mama brought you into a strong family; she is a strong, wise woman indeed.
