    I attended the peaceful home birth of this sweet baby girl. The first time mother was strong and confident in her body and the support around here to bring this baby earthside. This photograph is everything. All the hands coming in to assist and then there is hers, the mothers hand, placed so gently on top of her babys head for their first contact outside of the womb.

    From Your Shot photographer Shannon Hunt: "What a special moment to be part of Ashley. The moment a new life comes into the world is such a personal experience for the mother. To see so many people supporting her in this trying moment made my heart flutter. I love how she is not only surrounded by people but she and the baby are surrounded by love. What better start to a new life. Thank you for sharing such a special moment."
