Here is the lovely birth story of my dear friend, Misti - one of the most beautiful experiences I've ever had the privilege to capture. It was late on a February evening when Misti called me to say she was in labor with her third child. I headed over to her home and joined up with her birthing team: husband, midwives, and nurse and we all settled in excitedly for what we assumed would be an evening of birthing.
More than a week later I got the call - it was happening! Upon entering their home I could tell that this was different than before. Labor was in full swing and nothing would be slowing it down this time. Misti worked so hard throughout the night and in the lovely light of morning a beautiful (and big!) baby girl was delivered into the world. We were all overjoyed - and I remain extremely proud of my dear friend for her strength, her patience, and her remarkable maternal instinct.
Welcome, dear Audrey - we are so glad you're here.
