Beautiful candlelit water birth | Austin birth photographer

The morning of this sweet baby girl’s birth I answered my phone to daddy saying “It’s time…and you better hurry!!”. I rushed out the the door by 3:30am and when I arrived mama was in the birth pool, deep in labor land. She was illuminated by candles creating the perfect, most peaceful atmosphere to bring her baby earthside. I am truly amazed at this mama’s grace during her amazing home water birth.
