Birth Photographer | Portland, OR

Birth only happens once.

You’re gonna want to remember this.

“My biggest regret from my first birth was not having professional quality photos.”
– Annie in Portland, Oregon

“Birth photography helped me see how I strong I actually am.” – Stephanie

YOU are a powerful birthing Goddess.

Relive the moments over and over again.

One of the biggest regrets I hear from other moms is that NO ONE took photos at her birth. Baby pics? Yes. Mom working hard? Not so much.

Birth is an intensely physically and emotionally demanding experience. It’s a journey, you’re forced to dig deep into your core for the resources to persevere.

Every pregnant mom feels a little bit of self-doubt: “What if I can’t…?”

IMAGINE: how strong and powerful will you feel, after climbing the Mount Everest of labor and birth – when you come out on the other side, exhausted but proud, and realize that YOU F*CKING DID IT!!!

THIS is birth photography.

I don’t just care about birth photography.


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.

“I 100% absolutely recommend Natalie. It literally felt like having a sister in the room.”

– Tiana

“Hiring Natalie was by far the best investment that we made. We WILL hire her again.”

Here’s what other moms have said:

“My biggest regret from my first birth was not having professional quality photos to capture every little moment that I eventually forgot. Now, I’m beyond grateful I can look back on my birth photos and birth video to relive the moments over and over again. I can never thank Natalie enough for giving me those priceless memories.”
