Aubertin Birth Story

I often receive inquiries from parents-to-be if I will come to their birthing facility for photos following their birth. While my passion is to tell the entire story – the strength of mom during labor and the support of those around her while she's in it – I also understand not everyone may feel comfortable having someone else in the room with them during the actual birth, since it is such an intimate experience. So the answer is, yes, of course I would come to document you and your newborn at your birth location, post-birth! With that, I'm excited to announce I will be offering First Hours Sessions (essentially Fresh 48 Sessions but I've given it a fresh name) for August and beyond. And if you should still be interested in the full birth story coverage, I'm currently keeping my calendar open throughout October and beyond to take on more births and Real Life family sessions! Either way, I WOULD love to hear from you and would be thrilled to document your growing family.

On a related note, I'm excited to also share Evelyn's First Hour Session from last May! I had originally been booked to document the full birth story, however sweet little Evelyn arrived fast and furious into the world, and I ended up just missing her birth. Even so, it was so exciting to document her first hours in this world, snuggled in mom and dad's arms and welcomed with love by grandparents and big brother! A year sure does go by fast, and I'm so glad they have these images to look back on from the day she excitedly entered into this world!
