Birth Story Photography
"Whenever and however you give birth, your experience will impact your emotions, your mind, your body, and your spirit for the rest of your life." - Ina May Gaskin
Birth is the beginning of a brand new life story. Born is a new child, new parents, a new family. Birth story photography is exactly how it sounds - the story of the journey of your baby coming Earthside, baby's first breath, the first time you meet eyes....the emotion, the environment, and the beautiful details. Most often birth is a hazy experience for the birthing person and even partners, support people and any others involved. As your birth photographer I capture your story from start to finish - the details, the emotions, the key moments of the birth of your new family. As a documentary style photographer I bring your story full circle from the beginning of active labor to beginning of a new life.
While with you, my energy is warm and supportive and my presence is soft, discrete and grounding for your comfort while I get lost in the sacred joy of bringing a new life into this world.
