First birthday celebrations for Faye!

Oct 2, 2014

One year ago today, I had the amazing honour to witness a most serene and peaceful birth; an experience that will stay with me always.

Happy 1st Birthday to Faye!

The Birth of a Baby Girl - Natalie Carstens

The Birth Story of Faye, OLVG Amsterdam

There was a beautiful calmness in the room that day, and so much love. I reflect back on those special moments, still in awe and admiration of how incredible this mama was as she embraced her journey to motherhood. It was such a privilege to silently observe family bonds begin to envelop them as I quietly documented their first moments as a family. Truly special.

Wishing Panos, Meg and Faye, a magical first birthday celebration, sending much love to you all.

With love,


Psssst. Did you miss their birth story? You can see it here!
