It was a lovely fall morning when Oliver decided to make his appearance at a Salt Lake City birth center. I was fortunate to be able to attend and document his lovely water birth. Oliver’s mom was amazing and she had such wonderful support from her husband, her doula Stacie Nelson, and both of the baby’s grandmothers. Oliver’s mom graciously allowed me to bring along a new birth photographer I have been mentoring for her first experience shooting a birth. If you look closely, you may be able to spot me in action in this slideshow! Thank you to Cathy Ronalds for your contributions to documenting Oliver’s birth.
