it has been a joy to photograph Chelsea Jean and her ohana over the years, from our maternity shoot when West was in the belly to a waterfall adventure shoot with the whole fam. I was so happy when she asked me to document her home birth welcoming their 6th babe, a little girl! I got the call from Ryan that Chelsea’s contractions were picking up, and I jumped in the car and raced to their house. I walked in right in time, baby Frankie was here! Chelsea brought her daughter into the world with strength and ease simultaneously, it absolutely blew me away. there is nothing more magical then watching a baby be born, and this birth was extra special having the whole family there showering their mama with love and support. sending big love to Chelsea, Ryan, and the whole ohana.
watch the birth film + see a few of my favorite photographs from welcoming sweet Frankie Rose earthside.
