"Stories teach us in ways we can remember. They teach us that each woman responds to birth in her unique way. Birth stories told by women who were active participants in giving birth often express a good deal of practical wisdom, inspiration, and information for other women. Positive stories shared by women who have had wonderful childbirth experiences are an irreplaceable way to transmit knowledge of a woman's true capacities in pregnancy and birth."

What to expect

After giving birth three times now, I'm officially done (I think!!). Birth is wild. There isn't any other word I can think of other than that. I just love it.

After my first, I remember I couldn't sleep for hours . I kept thinking, "Woah...what did I just do?" I kept reliving the moment, all 36 hours of it, over and over again. It was incredible, awful, amazing, powerful, and such an-out-of body experience. If you know, you know! Birth is weird though. You forget it so quickly (probably, why we keep procreating haha).

Photographing your birth is a beautiful way to memorialize this wild moment in your life, where you are truly at nature's mercy. This powerful experience documented to show how strong you really are. No matter how you birth, no matter what position, how strong your epidural is, or how big your home birth tub is, this moment needs to be remembered.




Whats the first step?

Let's chat and connect. Everyone is different, and we want to make sure we are a good fit for your birth. Birth is a really intimate and special moment in your life. You want to be confident and comfortable. We can get to know each other, tell me about any past births, locations, and any other details you'd like to share.


We will discuss all your past birth history, unless this is your first. Birth is unpredictable, so we definitely can't plan for everything perfectly. I aim to capture the essence of your birth through authentic documentary photography, ensuring that each image narrates a part of your birth story.

You can let me know your birth expectations and hopes, what angles you are okay with and what you are definitely NOT into. I'm all for getting down and dirty, but I totally understand and appreciate the need for privacy.

How does it work?

I will be on call once you are about 38 weeks pregnant. You will keep me in the loop as soon as you are in labor ,and I'll stay in contact with you through it all. I will show up once active labor begins and stay about 1-2 hours postpartum.

How involved do you get?

I make it a point to introduce myself to everyone present and assure them that I'll stay out of the way. I will work with and around your birth team. My goal is to be a calming presence and not interfere. I understand the gravity of this moment and will approach it with the upmost respect.

However, if you need someone to catch your baby, I'll happily set aside my camera to lend a hand during that precious moment.

Do I need to ask permission for you to be there?

Yes, if you are in a hospital or birth center, contact your provider and make sure they allow this type of session. I would be considered a support person in the room.

What happens now?

Baby is here! YAY!! I will give you a highlight gallery soon after your birth. About 4-5 weeks after your birth, we will do a gallery reveal and work together to curate your a beautiful, keepsake album.
