THE BREATHTAKING BEAUTIFUL JOURNEY OF YOUR BIRTH STORY


"I feel so grateful that Jen was apart of the birth of our son, and I would wish that same level of support, knowledge and calm reassurance for every woman preparing for birth. She is worth her weight in gold, and you will give your whole family the gift of a more fulfilling birth and postnatal experience."

​- Alesha

BIRTH AND NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY

Photographs that live, breathe and speak of your Birth Journey. Time defied. A collection of fleeting, heart expanding moments contained that stir every one of your senses to remember for all of time.


I believe all families deserve a respectful, supported, gentle and loving birth. It is an absolute privilege to walk alongside families as they grow a human from scratch, birth them with strength and nourish them with love. ​I am so honoured that you are here, considering me, to be a part of your Birth Year.

With love and intention, The Birth Year was born out of the desire to support families through all seasons of their birthing journey, from pregnancy to birth, through to parenthood. Giving birth is one of the most significant, impactful and transformative chapters of the human experience. Your journey to parenthood deserves to be nurtured and supported and your Birth Story deserves to be documented and celebrated.
