On July 5th, August was born to Rachel (who is a wonderful photographer herself), Slate and Lily (his big sister) at home surrounded by love. Rachel baked a birthday cake during labor, and both her and Slate waited to find out the sex of their baby until he was born (you can see the surprise and delight on their faces when they found out he was boy). Documenting birth is such an honor and joy. I am so happy to welcome August into such a loving family.
P.S. A selection of August’s birth photos and a beautiful letter Rachel wrote to her son where featured in the ever lovely Taproot Magazine.
