Capturing your biggest moments…

Birth is a magical time in your life. After waiting so long for baby, some moms want this once-in-a-lifetime moment captured with photographs. I love being witness to a birth and feel so honored when a birthing person asks me to join them. I am training to be a doula through Birth Arts International currently, so I feel that adds an extra edge to my support of a birthing person. Besides being there to capture your special moments, I am also there to grab wet washcloths for your forehead, massages if desired, counter-pressure, and other comfort measures you might be considering. I am there to serve your family, in whatever ways that I can.

I support any decisions you make for your birth as I feel it is your right to decide what is best for your family. This means I support and will photograph home births, birthing centers, hospitals, natural births, epidural births, VBAC, etc.

How the process works:
Once you book with me, I stay on call for 2 weeks before and after your due date. You, or someone with you, calls me when you’re going into labor, and I join you. I will sit with you as you labor down, no matter the length of the process. I will document as much or as little of the process and experience as you’d like me to. I am also there to support any partner that may be present at the birth. After baby is born, I typically stay for about an hour to capture the first breastfeeding moments (if you choose to do so) and bonding with baby. I also capture family reactions and footprints if these are done at this time. Then, I let you be with your new edition! I go home, edit your gallery, and deliver it to you in 2-4 weeks.

When I photograph your birth, you’ll also get a custom birth announcement from me within 48 hours of the birth. This is a photo of your brand-new baby, with stats on there if you so desire (length, weight, time of birth) and baby’s name.

If you’d like more information, please contact me! I’d also be happy to join you and get to know you, and discuss the details of your birth further.
