Nova is born: A beautiful home birth by Brooke Schwab

categories family photography, pregnancy + birth

Birth photography is, well, there’s nothing like it. That moment, when baby finds mama’s chest for the first time. It’s everything. THE moment of moments. Brooke Schwab shot a gorgeous home birth last year and we had to share it with you.

It’s so inspiring to see that other mamas are going through the same experience that you’re preparing to have, isn’t it?

In German, when one sees a new baby, the saying goes “Oh ganz Frisch!”. Oh, how fresh! Love that sentiment so so much. A fresh, brand new life.

Welcome, fresh little Nova! The video of her birth was posted by her parents here. And you can see her at 4 weeks old, over on Brooke’s beautiful blog too. Be sure to check out all of her newborn photography. It’s amazing.

All photos by Brooke Schwab.
