The Birth of Levon – Boulder, Colorado Birth Photography

A couple days ago a request came in from our local Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep dispatcher with a special request. The father was recently diagnosed with Stage 4 brain cancer one month prior to the birth of their first child and the family had requested a photographer to come and take some photos of baby and dad together. It worked out that I was able to provide birth photography and videography for them.

Boulder Community Hospital did an amazing job helping the family be together for the birth. The work of the labor and delivery, ICU nurse, doula, and OB was nothing short of inspiring.

If you would like to continue to support the family you can visit: and purchase an amazing compilations of songs.
