I know babies are born each and every day but that doesn’t mean that it isn’t the most extraordinary and magical thing that could happen to someone. When Helena & Rodrigo asked me to photograph their home birth I was honoured and excited. I have given birth twice but never witnessed one myself. I can’t tell you how blown away I was by Helena & Rodrigo. She was brave and beautiful and his connection with her, amazing. They had a small little blow up pool in their little unit in Coogee and into the water their baby girl Hadassah was born. She was scooped onto her mumma’s chest and her sweet little eyes opened as Helena’s mother whooped for joy. What a moment. In this picture Hadassah is just few seconds old.
