This week, I had the pleasure and honor of capturing the moments leading up to and following the birth of baby Judah, the fourth son (and second brunette child!) of Tommi and Micah. This is a new area of photography for DHD – one that I have been hoping to have the opportunity to explore – so I was thrilled when Tommi sent her inquiry.
Judah was born at The Birth Center in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania; it provided a wonderful, home-like, mother-centered atmosphere for welcoming littles into the world. Tommi’s birth team – led by her husband – was incredibly supportive, and the peaceful, positive energy in the room was immediately apparent upon my arrival.
Following Judah’s peaceful arrival at 11:05 the morning of October 8 (in the bathroom! Tommi has had water births in the past and getting in the tub initiated a sort of Pavlovian response…) decadent handmade chocolate truffles were shared and I was invited to enjoy an incredible breakfast casserole with Tommi, Micah, and their new son. I truly feel bonded to them after sharing such an awe-inspiring experience with them, and I’m lucky and honored they asked me and trusted me to capture the moments of this special day for them.
Congratulations, Tommi and Micah and the very warmest welcome to sweet Judah!
