Why choose me as your birth photographer
I am in love with the messy, crazy ride that is motherhood. Birth changes our lives in so many ways, and no matter how you give birth you should see yourself through an artist’s point of view at the height of this transforming, empowering, and sacred journey. You should also feel SO supported! You want your birth photographer to be experienced and knowledgeable about birth, and someone you can get to know, like, and trust.
Lots of Experience
With over 100 births under my belt, I bring a lot of experience to my clients. I started documenting births for my doula clients in 2012, and I’ve been doing it ever since! I instantly fell in love, and I knew I was giving my clients a gift they didn’t know they needed.
The photos you see in my portfolio are a result of a lot of learning through the years. Not only learning how to photograph in impossibly low lighting conditions and live the “on-call life”, but also learning how to navigate each family’s birth space, and knowing the perfect way to document each story.
Your Story Deserves to be Told
No matter how your birth story unfolds, you deserve to have it told. Home birth, birth center, hospital, c-section. With midwives or doctors, or all of the above. I want to capture your strength, determination, and courage. Those heart-felt moments cannot be replicated or replaced, but they can be forever remembered and cherished through the images we create.
Your Partner Deserves to be in the Photos
Partners want and deserve to be in the photos too! Not only will you have photographs of the first time you meet your baby, but the look on your partner’s face while they supported you, and the connection and effort that built up to that moment. I want to free space for you and your partner to be present in the moments of your birth; all while knowing someone else is in charge of documenting the whole story. Having someone capture those special moments for you allows you to stay present and focus on each other.
“We do not remember days, we remember moments”
I love photographing true joy, courage, perseverance, and your most heartfelt moments. A birth story deserves to be remembered and retold. It’s not just the exciting moment of delivery, the “I did it” moment. It’s all of those quiet moments in between that fill in the times and spaces of your narrative you won’t want to let go of.
We know birth is an event that is not just important on the day. It’s not just about the birth of a baby, it’s about the creation of mothers, fathers, sisters, and brothers. It’s an experience that will remain with you for a lifetime. It’s your love story.
You are Already Magic
I strive to create the most supported and seamless photography experience for my clients and their families. I don’t do any crazy photoshopping of my images. Meaning, what I get on camera that day will be the reality of your photos. I truly believe that every single person, and every birth story is beautiful just as it is. I hope that you choose me to tell yours.
