You are a wanderer. A dreamer. A closet romantic.
You’ve been waiting and planning and hoping and wondering.
You know that this will be one of the most important days of your life and you want to be able to relive the BEST parts over and over again.
You would love a little extra support and an extra pair of hands so that your partner can focus on YOU.
That’s where I come in. I will slip quietly into your birth environment – holding space and helping out. You can focus on your baby while I make beautiful and intimate photographs. Imagery that will help you FEEL what it was like in that moment, SEE what was going on around you and UNDERSTAND how your birth has changed you.
The first time I photographed a birth I knew I wanted to do it over and over again. My births were transformative experiences. I was fortunate to have care providers that supported my choices and birth teams to affirm them. Giving birth to my daughters made me feel strong and alive.
I’ve photographed over 50 births in every kind of birth environment. From planned caesareans to home births – twins, breech babies, first and fourth time mamas, women who were 18 and others who were 42. I have been a part of surrogacy births and those of families who have had very long and winding roads to welcoming a baby into their lives.
“There is a crack, a crack in everything
that’s how the light gets in”
It doesn’t matter to me where or how you choose to birth. I only care that you have choice and support for those choices – that you focus on what you can control and work to let go of the rest. I care that you are kind, patient and forgiving of yourself. I will be there to help you navigate the road, affirm your choices and to help you remember.
