What made you choose birth photography as a career?
I recognized my passion for birth photography when a friend asked me to photograph her birth. After that, I was completely hooked! I’ve always loved candid photography and there’s nothing more candid, raw and real as capturing a birth.
What do you want women to know about birth?
That birth is what women were “designed” to do. That a mother giving birth is at her most beautiful because “what you see is what you get”. There’s no room for vanity. Instead it’s a time of vulnerability, transformation, power, inspiration, love and ultimate connection.
What do you love to do on your free time?
I love spending quality time with my family and friends, being outdoors, good food and craft beer.
What else would you like pregnant woman to know about you?
I’m a mother to a vibrant 3 year old little girl. I had a birth photographer for the birth of my daughter and I cherish those memories more than any other photos in my collection. I also run a home-daycare and work as a facilitator at an outdoor school.
