Guess what?

I'm *NOT* a fly on the wall.

My job is to actually get to know you and your preferences.

I don't just care about birth photography.

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

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.

My promise to you:

I'll be there with you every step of the way.

Your partner is free to hold you - not the camera.

Immerse yourselves in the heart-pumping,

soul-stretching,

ooey gooey nature of birth.
