The Birth of Atlas

between the earth and the sky,

between the world and abyss,

atlas, born into love and peace.


you'll remember his pink, peeling skin, his raspy new baby wail that catches when he inhales, repeating "gentle, gentle" to the older boys as they love on him with zeal. you'll remember exhaustion, tenderness, doubt and guilt and fear, and more ferocity than you could ever imagine. you'll remember the stillness of the night, how precious time becomes, how the love is so deep it's almost painful. 

my work as a photographer, as a historian, is to document as much truth from these first days as I possibly can. it's what I promise to do for you and yours. 

something new

Friends! As some of you may know, in just a few short weeks I’m opening my home to foster babies where I’ll be loving on them as if they were my own. I’m incredibly excited and deeply humbled by this new venture of foster parenting and I feel so lucky to have been able to learn from all of you wonderful parents for the past eight years. 

While I’ve photographed hundreds of newborns, I’ve never actually mothered one and I’m both anxious and excited to see how this shapes and changes Kadi Tiede Photography. 

I’ll be limiting my shooting time to just a few Saturdays + weekdays a month and I wanted to give you first dibs on those dates in case you wanted to get your summer session on the books!
