The first time I picked up a camera was for a senior project in high school. Faces, a portraits portfolio of piers, friends and family, was the beginning of a lifetime passion to capture the beauty, emotion and milestones of life through photography. After the life changing, empowering and beautiful home birth of our daughter in 2013 I realized just how transforming the experience of birth can be for a new mother and all of the people who surround her during birth. Short video clips and a few blurry photos are all that I have of that day, images that I will forever cherish and am eternally grateful to own.
Every birth is sacred and special, a story that is unique and one of its own. Birth photography is a way to document this story, to capture the moments that mean the most, the moments during labor, birth and meeting your new baby that will be cherished for a lifetime. In 2014 I photographed my first birth and was moved beyond measure, honored to have witnessed and capture the power of birth. A connection is made with every client I photograph, birth to lifestyle portraits, it is this connection that makes for a comfortable and warm environment to capture amazing photos. I enjoy meeting new people, exploring all that the beautiful city of Chico has to offer, and spending time with my husband and busy toddler with our two Boston Terriers Jack and Lucy.
Thank you for visiting my website and viewing images of the beautiful power of birth.
