Photos by Samantha Garcia Gagnon, Pitt Meadows Doula and Photographer
I had the pleasure to not only photograph this lovely lady with her family, but also be their family's doula through her birth.
With every birth that I go to, I always leave with a moment etched in my heart forever. For this family, two things struck me. 1. What an amazing birth partner he was and the immense love they had for each other and 2. How in tune the mother was with her baby. I always talk about trusting your instinct and she was the perfect example of trusting that instinct and it leading her to the best choices for her family. I will never forget her strength.
The photos here were taken within the first hour of birth and at 4 days postpartum.
