The Birth of Cantor : Alexandria, Virginia Birth Photographer

When I met up with them before the big day, this expectant couple warmed my heart with their sheer joy and excitement at the prospect of growing their family. They didn't seem to have the typical nerves in anticipation of such a momentous life event; they were simply over the moon to meet their son and become parents.

Rachel arrived to the hospital in the dark and early hours of the morning, and while the sun rose outside the window, her partner and birth team supported her beautifully as she summoned her deepest strength to bring her baby into the world. Cantor, you are one blessed little man to be so loved and cherished. I have no doubt your photographer mama (Rachel of Rachel K Photo) will be documenting your childhood in beautiful photos...and I'm so honored to have captured the story of your birth in photos and video for her.

As always, it was a privilege to work alongside my amazing doula friend Liz Oldham of Creating Your Calm Birth.

Here are some photo highlights, and the best part...a custom birth story fusion video below!
