James | American Fork Birth Photos

Meet the Coburns.  They welcomed James into their family this month!  I was lucky enough to be able to take their American Fork Birth Photos.  I consider myself very privileged to be invited into a birth space, and this was no exception.   Amy was induced because of high blood pressure and about 36 hours later that they welcomed their sweet, tiny, baby boy!   Both grandmas and 2 aunts were also there when he was born which was so special! Both grandpas were standing by in the waiting room.  It's always fun when all the extended family is so excited for the arrival of the new...

Rylee | Natural Birth Story

Rylee's Birth from Tina Chandler on Vimeo.       Rylee's Natural Birth Story Mom and dad were so excited for the arrival of their little girl!  But, she made them wait for it!  She didn't come until 41 weeks and 3 days...yes, that's 10 days after her "expected" date.  Mom wanted to have a natural birth, and she accomplished her goal!  She was ah-mazing.  Seriously.  She worked through each contraction and brought her baby into the world so beautifully.  I feel so honored to have been there!  Her total labor was about 8 hours.  Pretty fast for a first...

The story is below, but here's the video just in case you want to watch it first!  I love video for the sounds and the movement!  It's the closest thing to actually being there.     Kirbi went to the hospital 2 days before her due date with a lot of contractions!  They got checked in, got the epidural and tried to rest for a bit.  They called me around 2am and said they were ready for me to come.   A...

Alaya | Utah Home Birth Story

This Utah home birth story was so special, because I was so excited for one of my favorite families to have their second girl!  After having 3 boys, it was definitely a fun surprise when they found out it was going to be a GIRL!  It was an amazing birth, and Alaya's mom rocked it!  She is amazing, and seeing her with her newborn daughter was such a special experience!  I'm so glad I was able to document their special day.

Birth of Baby K | Riverton Utah | Birth Photographer

I love being a Riverton, Utah birth photographer!  It is so amazing to be see these cute families grow-in this case-from a family of 2, to a family of 3!  This mom was amazing, and dad fell in love with his sweet little boy!  Scroll to the bottom to see their birth slideshow! Here's a little about their birth story.  Mom was having contractions starting in the middle of the night.  They got closer and closer together and more intense.  She started feeling nauseous, and with the contractions getting so painful they decided it was time to go to the hospital.  When she was admitted she...

Baby G | Home Birth Story | Utah County

I am so lucky to be able to capture babies being born and their families meeting them for the first time! It was fun to capture this home birth story in Utah County! This post may be a little long, but stick with me, because it's a beautiful story!   Neena had her 4th baby (second girl) at a planned home birth with a great midwife!  She called on Saturday morning saying she was having contractions, but after a little while, they stopped.  Later that day, they started again, and she called and said I should head over.  Even though I only live 15 minutes away I was worried I would...

Welcome Baby Sister!

  This family is just the cutest!  I still cannot get over how cute the big brother was to his baby sister!  Let's start at the beginning.     The Family Cindy & Fred have 2 cute boys.  The oldest one probably wouldn't like being called he's handsome...but the younger one is super cute.  He's only 4, so I think calling him cute is still acceptable. Cindy was pregnant with their 3rd baby, and it was a girl!  Hooray!  Who doesn't love a baby sister right?!? She was supposed to be induced on Friday morning, but guess what?  Sophia had other...

Beautiful Surrogate Birth Story

As a Utah birth photographer, I get the unique chance to watch babies be born to loving families. This story was different than most, but very beautiful. Meet Lindsey & Harry...and Cindy & Rob.  This is the story of a surrogate and the birth of twin baby girls.  Cindy and Rob have been waiting years to be parents! I'm so grateful I was able to meet these families, and these special little girls. They called me about an hour before the birth, and I barely made it!  They decided that Cindy (the babies' mom) would wait in the NICU and Harry (the surrogates husband) would go to the...
