the skies were dark with rain and loud with thunder, but when i snuck in the front door of their house yesterday, the atmosphere in their home couldn’t have been any more different. peace and warmth surrounded my every step, and the smell of sweet lavender filled the air.

and their anxious pup? he waited patiently at her feet for the next several hours of work.
the story needs no written explanation from here on out. my precious friends, lauren and ryan, worked together beautifully; their doula, lauren, supported perfectly; and i now have the incredible honor of telling – through photographs – the intimate journey to their son’s first breath.
