I’d been anticipating going into full blown labor at any minute for the past two weeks. I felt anxious, excited and a little scared. The unassisted birth experience didn’t seem obtainable even one month before it happened. I’d been envisioning any outcome but the successful birth of our 3rd son. The fear-mongering of past precious pregnancies and birthing experiences rearing their massively terrifying presence in my thoughts. With my first birth, I was met with a cesarean and a new fear and mistrust of my instincts and my ..read more

As a birth photographer, it is no surprise that I am anti-hospital gown. Esthetically and functionally, they are definitely not what you want around/on your body as you labor and birth. As a HUGE fan of self-expression and individuality in my every day life, molding that with comfort in birth spaces is a tip I pass on to every single one of my clients regardless of where they deliver. I’ve spoken publicly about the one-size-fits-all multi-use gowns on my Instagram, too :  Did you know that you're allowed to say "No" to the hospital gown provided to you during labor? You CAN!

Birth Photography is booming and as a professional, I want to make sure you hire the best one for you.Before you pay that retainer fee and make that booking official, here’s a list of my top 8 questions to ask your birth photographer. 1.

Rachel was freshly 8 weeks pregnant at our initial sit down to see how we jived, to see if we were a good fit. She made me a mug of tea and we talked in the living room. I took notes and wanted to know all about her, her 6 year old son, her husband, her birth the first go around and what she hoped for her next one. An hour later I met Adam and Shore on their way back from the pool. It was a really good afternoon. By the end of the meeting, we were connected. It was effortless. All of the stories you’ll read here are effortless- that’s how client/birth photography should go. Every time. But we ..read more

I can still remember Nicole’s DM on IG last year. She was moving to Columbus from Seattle and wanted to connect - she also let me know they’d JUST started trying for a second child and would be hiring me at some point during their time here. I was all over it - a huge fan of her work “Miracle Mamas” - a support group for moms with addiction. She’d be here 4 weeks later, sitting in my living room with her son. But two weeks before that, I’d get a photo in my messages of a positive pregnancy test. My woman was moving to Columbus and she was doing it pregnant. Over the coming months we develope ..read more

My dearest sweet Hazel- When I had my third contraction around three in the morning- I knew it was time.  I laid in bed timing my contractions for the next few hours and when I was certain this was it, I quietly got out of bed and crawled into bed with you.  I snuggled up to you from behind and nestled my face into your wild curls and the warm nape of your neck. I lay there with you quietly just soaking up the last few moments with you as my only child.  It’s such a bittersweet thing- knowing I’m about to give you this gift of a sibling, but also my heart breaking for you in a way knowing it ..read more
