This is the sweet baby that was born in 61 minutes last week... and his mama who has finally caught her breath! Isn't dad lovely, too?
(I took this photo when the baby was 5 days old. This is in their living room with the parents in black shirts and the baby naked. The only light is coming through the window (I've learned to use the camera on Manual!); I've only seen pictures like this before and wished I could do them... and look! Now they're mine! I also soft-focused this in Photoshop. I did this one in black & white, too, but the parents preferred it in color, so I am sharing it in color with you here.

I found your blog the other day in googleland and have soaked up every entry. When I saw this gorgeous photo I had to post a response. All of your photos are beautiful, but this one really touches me as I am right now 40 wks pregnant with my second son. What a precious child and beautiful parents.

I hope you stay strong and persevere in your work. Women like you are the angels who make it possible for women like me to bring our children into the world in a gentle manner and to stay true to our convictions that birth is a natural part of life and does not need to be managed by the medical establishment. Blessings upon you!
