Photographing your birth experience gives you the opportunity to forever relive the ultimate celebration of life and love.

 

Thank you for considering me to photograph one of the most important moments of your life. Birth photography is not a hobby, or a side project to pad my photography portfolio. I am dedicated to serving growing families, and I bring not only my specialized photography expertise, but the wisdom that comes with doula work, lactation counseling, and education to your birth. Often times, in the midst of all the commotion and emotion, the event happens so fast that you may miss some magical details. The photos captured from your labor and delivery are a beautiful reminder of one of the most important days of your life. I will be there for you as part of your birth team, supporting you and giving you my undivided best. Capturing your birth the only way I would want mine photographed; with the raw emotions, the joy, the pain, the true love and connection between you and your partner, the support of your doula and birth team. Simply put, recording the most magical time of your life. I will ensure to photograph moments you will want to revisit time after time. Even after years down the road you will still remember that day with much pride and joy. By allowing me to handle this important task, it will free up dad or any other support person to partake during your special event. I will also ensure that his or her participation is captured on film.

Being trained as a birth doula, I will be sensitive to your needs as a laboring woman; I understand my role to document quietly and unobtrusively.  Being on both sides of the birth process, I also understand which special moments you may want. Although birth and labor are very unpredictable, I will photograph glimpses of your labor and birth unfolding naturally in a photo-journal style.
