It is not often that the camera turns on me -usually I am the one snapping pics. But recently, a momma took the camera out of my hands and captured shots of me and her baby.

Looking at these photos, it is obvious that I love this baby. Well, who wouldn’t right? She is lovely! But, full disclosure, I truly love babies. And as these photos capture, I love being with babies: holding, interacting, hearing their stories, feeling their bodies stretch and unfold, entering together into curiosity about the world around us…

Yep, this Troy midwife loves babies!


May all babies be born into loving hands
