I have been wanting to photograph a birth for a few years now. being a maternity and family photographer, the actual birth is the magic moment in between. a tiny soul entering the earthly realm. I am fascinating by the mystery, the connection.
when Ellen asked me to document her third birth, I was so happy. I adore her ohana, and was truly honored to be invited to capture baby Scout’s first moments. I did both photos and video, you can watch the video below:
sometimes called ‘fresh 48’ — the first couple days of baby’s life. this is a time of new beginnings. documented, with love. cuddles in bed and backyard play time.
mahalo to ellen and fam. visit ellen’s website here to learn more about her amazing vegan cookbooks.

can’t wait to meet you. xo
