When this strong mama reached out to me and Gina several months ago about booking our doula support + birth photography package

we were thrilled

Our meeting at a Starbucks in downtown St. Paul was full of laughs

And I was able to look forward to capturing her birth in photographs for ages

because she planned ahead and secured our services before we booked up.

Smart mama!

The day finally arrived and we met her at the birth center bright and early.

 When I walked in

I could hear the telltale signs of a woman in active labor.

 She powered through HOURS of labor

and finally finally finally got to meet her baby

 in the middle of the afternoon after utilizing sterile water injections (twice!)

the TENS machine

And all the doula tricks Gina could muster.

And all the doula tricks Gina could muster.

Incredible Moments
