This Gatineau home birth was my very first... and the one that ignited my love of birth photography. I still remember how excited I was when my dear friend Elise asked me if I would be there while she gave birth. And her little Mael will always hold a special place in my heart, since I was there when he was born.
The midwives from the Maison de Naissance de l'Outaouais did a wonderful job, offering support and encouragement, but Elise was just amazing. Most women will recognize a time when they feel like they just can't go on... it was incredible to see my friend overcome that and welcome her little boy (her fifth!) into the world, at home.
Even though I feel my skill as a photographer as grown drastically since I took these pictures, I still love them. And I know how special it's been for Elise to be able to look back on these images in the days and months since his birth.
