Demi's birth day was full of beautiful human connection, support, and love.

Erin is one of the most humble and graceful women I've had the pleasure of becoming friends with. Childbirth is golden and breathtaking and the most natural of human experiences, and I cannot believe that I'm invited to document all that encompasses it.
