This birth was so much FUN!! This mama has one of the best senses of humor of anyone that I know and she kept all of us laughing hysterically throughout her labor and birth with her candid joking about how much this effing hurts! It kept the mood light and fun through something that is so difficult and intense! When she arrived at the birth center, she was only 4 cm, but we all knew things would be fast once they kicked into full gear. I was at her first baby’s birth, and he was born quickly as well so we knew once it intensified, it could be quick. She labored outdoors in the cool evening air ..read more

This sweet family hired me as their birth photographer to document this amazing arrival of their 4th baby. Being an out of town family who had to travel for 2 hours to arrive at the birth center, I was hopeful but I and they would make it in time with this being her 4th baby and with the 2 hour drive ahead of them when labor started! This mama had such intuition about her birth that she chose to go ahead and come into town and stay in Albuquerque a few days after her due date had passed. Though she wasn’t in labor, she just had a feeling. After a membrane sweep at the birth center and having a ..read more

It was such an honor to do maternity photos for the second time for this incredible mama! Her first maternity session was ~4 years ago at the tippy top of the crest. Check out her first session here! This time we also went to the mountain, but not the tippy top!! We didn’t need any children falling off off cliffs as her son was present this time! I had the honor of attending Joshua’s birth, and if you haven’t had a chance to read his birth story, make sure to do so here! His birth was one of the most special, emotional, and powerful I have seen, and that says a lot after witnessing about 75 bi ..read more

This session was so beautiful. There is something so special about doing your maternity session in the comfort of your own home, where you can cuddle up on the bed together, and feel free to relax and be yourself. These two little girls are so excited to be welcoming a sister very soon. They both were so sweet, greeting me with a big hug and smiles when I walked in, and I even got a picture that they colored before I left as well! With this being her last baby, this sweet mama wanted to document her little family and her beautiful growing belly. I will be documenting these two meeting their si ..read more

When I met Emerald, I knew her story was going to be a special one. As we chatted over coffee, she told me about her journey of conceiving her miracle rainbow baby, and I was so excited to document this precious one’s arrival. Emerald and Shiloh worked SO hard to bring their baby earthside, and it was such an honor to document their powerful story. Here is Ira’s birth story in the words of his beautiful mama: “I was never the little girl who dreamed of having a family, getting married, or being a mom. I was the little girl who played basketball, scrapped up my knees from rollerblading on gr ..read more

Charlie’s Birth Story |A Peaceful Water birth at Dar a Luz Birth Center | Albuquerque Birth Photographer

Charlie’s birth was one that left me amazed and astounded by his mama Laura’s quiet strength. It was hard to tell if she was even in pain or having contractions at all even during transition and close to pushing! She used hypnobirthing to focus and remain calm. Laura and Dennis were such an amazing team. Thank you so much for having me there to document and for sharing your birth story! Here it is in his mama’s words: I’d been having cramping every night for about a week before I went into labor right after work on Friday, December 21, 2018. It started with the same light cramping I’d been ..read more

I have yet to tell a birth story like baby Grayson’s!! When I first met with Laci, she told me how she has a history of having her babies pretty quickly! So I was very on edge waiting for the call from her as her due date approached. Then her text came in, and I was more than ready to go!! I figured I would even leave for the hospital the same time as her so that I could be sure to not miss it….just to play it on the safe side since she had only been laboring an hour or so. I wanted to err on the side of being early than…..well missing it…..which is exactly what happened!! Here is how it all p ..read more
