Birth Photography

Birth Story

If you’re expecting a new baby and you want to remember every detail of your baby’s birth, I’m here to help.

When my first child was born, I remember feeling a complete shock at how I seemed to leave the room… I went off into labor land. I was so fully present in my own body that I wasn’t aware of what was happening around me. Enter: birth photography. Through photos, I was able to piece together what happened. I saw the people who supported and loved me, watching me, helping me, holding me. I have images of my face the first time I saw my baby; dad’s face when he realized there *was* actually a baby in there all along; my mom’s face when she became a grandmother for the first time. I am honored to help create the same treasured memories for you, too.

When you invite me to document your birth story, you can rest easy knowing that you will have premium quality photos (and video!) of these moments that you can reflect back on for the rest of their lives. When they’re walking, talking, starting school, and learning to drive, you’ll always be able to remember what labor was like, the first time you did skin to skin, and your partner’s face when he saw his child for the very first time.

As your birth photographer, I make my presence as unobtrusive as possible. I hold a quiet reverence, helping to create an environment where you feel safe and protected. I am careful to respect your medical providers, giving the utmost importance to the people assisting your normal birth. I believe in the importance of holding a sacred space for you, supportive labor partners, ensuring your safety, and allowing you to trust your body to do what it was made to do.

Your birth photo session includes ALL of the best images (100-150) that tell your story. Each package includes a custom viewing gallery where you will be able to download the best high resolution images from your session retouched and fully edited.

Images displayed online and on social media are used with permission; your privacy is paramount to me.

Limited amount of births scheduled throughout the year.

Time goes by so fast – I remember the first six weeks of my baby’s life passing like the blink of an eye. All the sudden, I realized I hadn’t been documenting as much as I would have liked! The postpartum phase can really throw you for a loop with late nights, daytime cat naps, and learning how to get into a new groove with your little one. When you invite me over to document your fresh newborn baby, you know that you will have premium quality photos (and video!) of these early moments that you can reflect back on for the rest of their lives. When they’re walking, talking, starting school, and learning to drive, you’ll always be able to remember how small they used to feel in your arms.
