New Life | Minnesota Birth Photography

The greatest work of art created first by God and then by man, is the creation of life. The whole process is an amazing art in itself. The fact that it takes two artists, man and woman, each bringing their own parts of a pallet to create a work of art that not only has a piece of both artists but is also a living, breathing, ever-changing, piece of art with an identity of it’s own.

I had the honor of photographing my first birth in March.

WOW~! Gorgeous! I am still pressuring hubby for #2, WHEN (not if) I win that one you'll be our second phone call (have to book my midwife first!). You'd love the homebirth freedom and of course, you'd rock the pics!
