Thinks Gordon Ramsay is the sh*t

Mother of two, I had both my kids with midwives - one at home and one at Andaluz water birth center.

My own birth experiences led me toward becoming a birth photographer and trained doula, later adding videography to my repertoire.

Holding space for families through the birth process is the reason I was put on this earth.

"We have a secret in our culture, and it's not that birth is painful. It's that women are strong." -Laura Stavoe Harm

3 quick facts about me:

01.

Guess what my dog's name is? (you're gonna love it)

I live right outside Portland on a little bit of property in St Helens, a small town where my husband Derrick grew up. We have a few acres, chickens, goats, and a Livestock Guardian Dog named Ina May.

Derrick and I are proud to provide home grown organic vegetables, free range eggs, locally farmed beef and poultry for our family.

We homeschool our kids using a modified Waldorf curriculum called Oak Meadow.

I love my community!

I’m an active member of my local community and a founding board member of a nonprofit, M.O.M. of Columbia County.

I help facilitate monthly breastfeeding support meetings and community outreach including holiday meals, toy drives, and free clothing swaps for local families.

Birth is my jam!

I'm trained as a Cornerstone Doula and Birth Rights Advocate through Birth Monopoly.

I feel drawn toward supporting birthing people through one of the most transformative experiences of their lives.

I'm *NOT* a fly on the wall. My job is to actually get to know you and your preferences.

F. A. Q.

WHAT IF I GO INTO LABOR IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT?

I add your phone number to a special list on my phone so you can ring my phone, even in the middle of the night, even on silent. When you call me, I’m ready to jump in the car. My bags are packed and I’m ready – even at 2:00AM!

HOW LONG WILL YOU STAY WITH ME DURING LABOR?

I’ll stay with you for an unlimited number of hours. You don’t need to worry about going “over” time if you have a long labor – I’m not going anywhere. I stay with you until 2 hours postpartum, so we get all those sweet newborn images.

WHAT'S THE BACKUP PLAN?

In the unlikely event of an illness or emergency, I contract a talented & experienced backup birth photographer. You don’t pay anything for backup services.

CAN I DO MONTHLY PAYMENTS?

Yes! Most families choose a monthly payment plan. Please inquire for more information.

WHAT IF MY BIRTH HAPPENS EXTREMELY FAST?

In the off chance you have an extremely fast labor, I will get there as soon as physically possible and document the hours immediately following birth, plus a complimentary Lifestyle Newborn session in your home.

WILL YOU POST MY IMAGES ONLINE?

The images you see online and on social media are used with permission from mom. Your privacy is paramount to me.
