James’ birth story is up on the blog (link in profile)! And it was a tough one to write. There was a lot I had to wrestle with and process, but I’m so thankful for the healing power of words, as well as the incredible photos captured by my best friend that helped me both own my story AND now share it. . It is my hope that both my story and these photos will empower and inspire others, just as birth stories and birth photography have empowered and inspired me so many times before! ❤️ . Warning: this post does contain uncensored photos of birth.
