Please Note:

From 2011-2016, we had an inspiration blog featuring nurseries, baby showers, parties, and portraits that were submitted to us by photographers, designers, and parents. We no longer accept submissions or post new blog content, but we have left the archive here for those who have saved this content, or for new readers looking for inspiration.

Home Birth Story Photos

When I was in the hospital this June giving birth to my first baby, I admittedly had more than a few moments when I wished I could have been in the comfort of my own home. While I'm not about to weigh in on the home birth vs. hospital birth debate, these home birth story photos from Sharon Johnson Photography certainly show how beautiful and warm an at-home birth can be. Meet Derek and Aynna, who gave birth to baby Eleanor. This was the first home as well as natural birth Sharon Johnson photographed. According to Sharon, mom Aynna did a wonderful job laboring, proceeding through with confidence and beauty. You can see more from this special day by visiting the full gallery.
