I am so excited to share this beautiful birth story with permission from both this beautiful family and their surrogate. I am so excited because it is such a beautiful story of hope and love all the way through.
I received an inquiry from Lizi (the surrogate} back in April as she searched for a local photographer to document this birth. I have to say that when she told me it was a surrogate birth, my heart skipped a beat. I have dreamed of documenting one of these because I am so fascinated by the women who are willing to carry for another couple. It is a true selfless act, and brings such hope and joy to the families that hire them.

August has been my busiest birth month to date. I took on more birth clients this month than I ever had in the past because each one was so unique and special ( I still have one more to go at this point).
I limit the number of births I take a month to ensure that I am available when you go into labor, no matter what time of day it is. I don’t book much of anything else while on call for birth for the same reason.
Sarah Beth is local photographer and dear friend. She is an extremely talented newborn and birth photographer (in fact we are each other’s birth back ups!), you need to check out her work! Sarah Beth Chamberlain Photography.

Throughout my life I have been so blessed in having met so many incredible human beings, people that have been willing to open their hearts and their stories to me, people that I believe undoubtedly were placed in my life for a reason. This is one of those families. I talk some about how we connected when I blogged their maternity session a few months ago, but from the time that Mandy moved to Las Vegas and began looking for a newborn photographer there are just so many cool coincidences.
