"To be pregnant is to be vitally alive, thoroughly woman, and distressingly inhabited. Soul and spirit are stretched – along with body – making pregnancy a time of transition, growth, and profound beginnings."
-Anne Christian Buchanan
Birth is a sacred, powerful and wholly consuming life experience. We discover new and exciting parts of ourselves, our mind and body stretched, ready to welcome new life and a new perception of ourselves.
A journey worth documenting, a time to focus and bring the life you nourished for nine or so months Earth-side.
You deserve to be celebrated, your teamwork captured, your first moments together as a family.
I know from my own experience that I have a very weak memory of my births and looking back on the images gives me the opportunity to reflect and remember the little things I'd forgotten; my husband's gentle touch, the colour my babies were when they were first born, the midwives and team who cared for us.
These are moments that cannot be recreated and hiring a birth photographer means you'll have these memories and moments to look back on - whether you keep them to yourself or share with your loved ones, you'll have those incredible moments forever.
I am on your birth team; your friend, family and advocate.
I promise to bring honesty, respect and trust
with me into every birth space and your
comfort is of the utmost importance to me.
I care about your birth and postpartum experience.
I highly encourage you, if you're even slightly interested or curious, or this is a completely new concept to you, to get in touch and ask any questions you may have.
"I honestly think having you there was one of the best decisions. I want to have another baby, just so I can have you on my birth team again!"

If a full birth story isn't for you but love the idea of capturing some of their first moments, a postpartum session, taken just after baby is born, usually within 24 hours, is the perfect option. Home or hospital, wherever you are.
