When I first began photographing for clients, I was a newborn photographer. And I was the kind of photographer that only saw pretty in stylized pictures— babies all curled up in scrunchy poses, sleeping in baskets and hanging onto some pretty strange memorabilia. It took a few months, but I luckily realized that, more than any scene I could create, there's a certain unmistakable and greater beauty in what's real.
For many of us, becoming a parent is the most emotional journey of our lives. Birth photography gives you an incredible way to be reminded of your strength and all the love that surrounded you during your baby's birth, but even more than that— your baby will able to see how life was in those early days.
Wherever you decide to labor, I'll be there alongside you and your birthing team to support you. I'll stay with you to capture your delivery all the way through your baby's firsts— all the while, catching the little details that are important to your birth story.
Before your due date, we'll sit down together so that we can get to know each other and discuss how you'd like for me to capture your birth. Each birth story includes my on-call availability from 38-41 weeks, unlimited photography from your active labor through delivery, and a full collection of images and a professionally printed album— to one day, pass along to your baby. (A backup photographer will also be available for you, should the need arise).
