As a birth photographer, Kristin Ann takes every opportunity to document a home birth. However, there is a family that holds a special place in her heart. The woman had the honor of capturing the births of two of Brooke’s three children. At Boyd’s birth, the woman had a special family member nearby: a sweet Corgi named Ryder.
Unfortunately, Ryder could not see Berkeley’s second birth. However, his brother Ranger was there to intervene. In both deliveries, the dogs revealed their sweet side and supported their mother in difficult times.
“When I got home to look through all the photos I was in heaven looking at all the beautiful moments from this birth. I wanted to laugh and cry while looking through them. They were perfect. When I sent the preview to Brooke, she had no idea he never left her side. It was so nice that I could capture that for her and she now can look back and see things she otherwise might not have noticed.”, said Kristin.

“Ryder would come and check on his mom and make sure everything was okay.”
“Ryder did not get to see the birth of Berkeley but his brother Ranger was there to step in.”
“Ranger was so excited. You could tell he knew something was happening…”
“It was a beautiful thing to watch – the bond between mom and baby and man’s best friend.”
“He was a calming presence when the power and intensity of her contractions started.”
“When we moved to the birthing tub, Brooke progressed so fast…”
“Ranger would come and give her another reassuring kiss!”
“He knew she was in good hands so he waited patiently for the new baby to arrive.”
“Once sweet Berkeley was here everyone was overjoyed. It Was a girl!”
“Through all the commotion, little Ranger jumped up and ran right over to meet his new (and only) little sister.”
He loved her.
“He was so proud to see her.”
“The most beautiful part of this story is that his mom, Brooke, is a doula herself. She navigates and comforts so many beautiful moms like herself through the hardest journey of their lives.”
Without a doubt, a story that fills our hearts with joy … Share these loving images with your friends and family!
