Many things are born on your child's birth day. 

Not just any story; but your story, your child's story.

As a mother, I love affirming and celebrating the birth of your baby and your passage into motherhood..... 

As an artist and photographer: It makes my heart sing when I am invited into your birth space, being asked to document these fleeting but powerful moments for you….

Pricing Overview 

 

So after the dust settles. When you have filled up your wedding albums, when you realize that the dress, the tux, the bouquets, symbolized more than just a marriage, but a rite of passage into a deeper love; I want to be there to help you fill the photos albums of your most ordinary and extraordinary days.

After years and years of complicated packages that seamed straightforward, but utterly lacking in options, I have streamlined my pricing so that you have straightforward options and more interaction with me before your session –my doula heart loves holding space for all families (and their birth stories), no matter how they came into being. Getting to know you and your story is integral to my process.

So come to me with your story. Let’s begin a conversation. Tell me what’s in your heart. Let me show you what I see.
