Why Birth Photography

Having a baby is extraordinary and
really hard work. You deserve to look
back on this day and see your self as
strong and beautiful. 

That moment of meeting your baby for the very first time will only happen once. With birth photography you can experience it completely while having the peace of mind that your memories are being captured.

If this is not your first rodeo then you know all about labor-land.  While everyone else may remember this amazing day, many moms have a hard time recalling details.  Birth photos will help you piece your story together. 



Professional birth photographs have the power to help us process,  accept and celebrate our birth story by allowing us to re-live our experience through  a fresh and loving perspective.  

Our birth experiences no matter what they are or turn out to be help prepare us for the very long and surprising journey of motherhood. 

I want to help YOU honor your story.

Maggie, it was such a pleasure having you at our birth. You have a wonderful presence and I could tell you cared deeply about documenting the day in beautiful ways. The morning went so fast, I think having the photos and video will really help me see all that happened. Thank you! - L
