I have the most amazing group of friends. We call ourselves The Tribe. Without getting into too much detail... these women are amazing. My rocks. Sometimes I can't believe how lucky I am to be blessed with such beautiful, loving, trusting, caring, supportive and FUN friends. We've been together a few years now, brought together by birth but bonded by love, trust and passion. Passion for women, for honesty, for support, for empowerment. I can't imagine my life without them. Most of us are now having or have had our second, third or fourth babies and recently I had the pleasure of photographing one of The Tribe's newest members... River. He made his way earthside in the water, in his Mama's bedroom in their home. He's a perfect angel. This family, their love and compassion for one another and for others is rare. You meet many people in your lifetime but few of them you can actually give the title "nicest person I've ever met". I give this Mama, her family that title. Without a doubt she is one of the most amazing women I've had the privilege to get to know. And her husband and daughter are just as sweet. I'm so proud to call her my friend, my Tribe member. And I'm so, so, so excited to share the images from their first session as a new family of four.
