Congratulations! I am honored to know that as you envision your ideal birth, you think of a doula being present. I would love to assist you in that sacred moment.
As far back as I can remember, I have always been fascinated by the ability women have to grow, birth, and mother their babies. After experiencing the traumatic birth of my first child, I knew birth could be better and went hunting for answers. I then discovered doulas and the incredible support they are to mothers, and their birth partners. I never could have dreamt that this work would bless my life in the many ways it has. I feel called to help mothers, and I am honored to assist these incredible women on their journey to brilliantly beautiful births. My hope for mothers is that they may reflect back on their birth with peace in their hearts, knowing that they were confident and had a loving team, protecting their birth experience.
Photography is just the cherry on top! How great it is to reflect back on your birth by looking at those professional pictures taken during the most incredible moments of you lifetime. "Birth photography transforms the birth journey into more than just a cherished life memory. It creates the story of your child’s birth from the tiniest detail to the sheer emotion shared between partners to the moment that baby and parents fall in love at first sight."

I look forward to providing my services to you.
