I don’t just care about birth photography.

I care about you.

 

Many parents tell me they find my energy calming in their birth space. As a professional birth photographer and trained doula, I anticipate what’s going to happen before it happens, so I can get all the shots you want.

I care about you.

My goal is to photograph your birth as unobtrusively as possible. Many moms tell me they find my energy calming in their birth space. As a professional birth photographer, I anticipate what’s going to happen before it happens, so I can get all the shots you want.
