Birth stories are the greatest love stories ever told. They are transformative stories of the powerful act of bringing a baby earth side. They are stories of connection between partners, of immeasurable strength, and of unparalleled love greater than any. They are stories of first breaths and of the birth of a family. They are raw, intimate, sacred and breathtakingly beautiful stories of women being born into mothers and the life that follows.
BIRTH PHOTOGRAPHY IS A VISUAL NARRATIVE THAT TELLS YOUR VERY OWN LOVE STORY
Birth Photography encapsulates the deeply powerful, transformative nature of birth and preserves the many details, big and small so you can remember every single moment from the day your precious family grew. The connection and emotion shared between you and your partner throughout labour. The strength and determination as you work through each contraction. The first time you and your baby lock eyes and you both fall madly, deeply in love. The life transforming instant your baby takes it's first breath. The heart expanding first feed and skin to skin bonding time together. The love soaked first moments together as a new family.
CUSTOMIZE YOUR VERY OWN BIRTH PHOTOGRAPHY COLLECTION
When you book a Birth Photography session with me, you'll experience a photographer that truly cares and invests time in you and your growing family. I believe women are extraordinary and all birth is beautiful. It is an incredible privilege to be trusted to document a family's birth story. I am deeply committed to creating a visual narrative of your labour, birth and first hours together as a new family that you can look back on for years to come and re-live the magic of your once in a lifetime experience as often as you want.

YOUR BIRTH PHOTOGRAPHY EXPERIENCE
MY EXPERIENCE AND TRAINING
Below you will find three, all inclusive Birth Photography Collections to choose from. Each collection includes an unlimited amount of documentary style, hand edited, black and white and/or colour digital images. The exact number of images depends on the unique length and unfolding of your story. I strongly believe that preserving your birth story in a tangible way is so important in this digital age. Because of this, each collection comes with a keepsake wooden photo box filled with printed, 4x6 images from your entire gallery. This beautiful, high quality keepsake will stand the test of time and can eventually be passed on generations to come. Also included in all three collections is a custom USB containing all your digital files.

FOLLOW ALONG ON
Having given birth to six babies and through my work as a Doula, I acknowledge birth is a very intimate experience and I completely respect the sacredness of your birth experience.
I am a professional, certified Birth Photographer through Birth Becomes Her, a graduate of The Birth Film Workshop from Everyday Films and a proud member of Canadian Birth Photographers and International Association of Professional Birth Photographers. I have been photographing births for over 5 years.
I have worked seamlessly to establish positive relationships with local Midwives, Physicians and Obstetricians where I'm welcomed into the birth space to document their patient's birth story. I have experience with photographing home birth, hospital birth, cesarean sections, water birth, VBACs (vaginal birth after cesarean), natural birth, medicated birth, hypno-births, surrogate/intended parent births, multiples birth, high risk birth and inductions. Every one was miraculous!
