"Birth is not only about making babies. It is about making mothers; strong, competent, capable mothers who trust themselves and believe in their inner strength." - Barbara Katz Rothman
Whether you are a first time mother, filled with nervousness at the unknown journey that awaits you, or an experienced mother, that's journeyed through birth one or more times in the past, it holds true that birth is a part of who you are as a woman. Each birth is an unique experience of pulling on your inner strength, bolstering yourself with the support of loved ones and embracing and bonding with the new being you've brought forth. It is this journey that is your story and that I want to capture for you. As a mother of 9 that has experienced both hospital and home birth, as well as trained as a doula, I am very comfortable in any birth scene. I believe every woman is uniquely designed by the Creator to birth, and value the need and desire to validate each and every birth story. At your birth I will document the emotions, details and moments in a photojournalistic style. My approach and manner is that of a watchful, compassionate observer.
Each and every birth story includes me being on call from 2 weeks prior to your due date until you deliver. I will arrive during active labor and stay until an hour or two after your birth. You are not on the clock with me, my price is inclusive of my time, because births are not always predictable. Each birth story is edited and delivered to you in a private gallery.
