Birth Photography

The exact moment you lift your baby up and bring them to your chest.

Their first cry, your mom’s reaction, your partner’s tears, the words you spoke.

Labor & Birth Doula

As a rights informed birth advocate, I do things a little differently.

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.
