Intuitively, you know you need a birth photographer who brings the right energy to the room.

I specialize in birth center
and home births.

My babies were born with midwives.
One at home, one at a birth center.

You & your partner are free to
get lost in the experience in real time.

Don't worry -
I'll take the photos.

My job is to

Here's what I do:

Birth Photography

Transcend space & time as your known self and body splits to become two.

 

Don’t worry, I’ll take the photos.

Birth Videography

Sit back and relax, knowing everything is being documented.

Including underwater footage!

Doula

As your doula, I learn about your birth preferences.

 

We discuss fears, obstacles, and joys.

 

There is no right or wrong way to give birth – as long as it’s YOUR way.

 

Because your birth story matters.

Doula + Photo

With visitor restrictions some birth facilities are putting in place, it makes sense to choose one person who can wear two hats.

 

We'll talk about how to prioritize the two roles during birth.

 

As an experienced birth photographer and doula, I'm able to anticipate the ebb and flow of birth to find the right time to snap professional quality photos while supporting you.

Doula + Video

New offering:
Doula support plus birth film.

 

Underwater footage available.

Wouldn't it be great if you could reflect back on the profound nature of giving birth?

Here's how it works:

01.

Schedule a call with me to check availability for your due date.

02.

Check 'birth photographer' off your To-Do list.

03.

Have a baby!
Sit back and relax, knowing everything is being documented.

My promise to you:

soul-stretching,

ooey gooey nature of birth.
