Let me start by saying Home Birth's never get old, I can't get enough of them, the relaxed environment, the comfort of being in your own home, the outstanding care of the midwives, I don't know, maybe just about everything about them. BUT I LOVE THEM! It's hard to pinpoint just one thing =). I had the honor of capturing Jenna's beautiful home birth December 3rd, 2014. I remember texting back and forth with Amy L (one of the midwives) since the night before. She wasn't sure if this was real labor or not as she had been contracting on and off for several days but this time she said to stick around. Since this was her 2nd baby and I wasn't sure how fast or slow things could go and I was about half an hour away I decided to head out to her side of town and do some Christmas shopping in the mean time. All I knew was they were not finding out the sex until after the birth and I knew I didn't want to miss the expression on their face at that moment. There sure was not shortness of love surrounding this beautiful mama, with the care of her husband, their 2.5 year old daughter and Jenna's mother this mama rocked her birth. Midwife Goldie Parker and Amy L. knowing that the dad was sick, upon their arrival they made a bone broth chicken veggie soup that I'm sure you could smell from blocks away. By the time I arrive to their gorgeously decorated home it had already been several hours (more like all night) that she had been in labor, but you could barely tell. I wasn't sure if she was 3cm or 9cm, her facial expressions were all the same throughout and barely any sound came out of her mouth. Baby Gianni was born approximately 4 hours after my arrival and Jenna's family couldn't wait any longer to find out the sex of the new arrival. Enough chit chat. Here are a few of the images from Jenna's home birth.
