HI, I’m Maggie and I have been photographing births since 2010, shortly after my first son was born.
My very first mom friends were birth workers. I quickly became immersed in the magic of birth the power of women and the constant battle with all the shit we have to go through to birth our babies on our terms.
Through years of work and friendship I saw first hand the immeasurable difference that Doulas bring to a birthing mother and their family. Belonging to this community of change makers and heros has been a tremendous honor.
As the Birth Photographer I helped many women document one of the hardest and most exhilarating days of their lives. I showed them just how strong and resilient they are. I showed them that their beauty shines through a sleepless night and the messy marathon of labor. And at times I showed them the good moments they desperately needed to see in labors gone bad.
Dear Doula, I have seen you boundlessly give your love, time and support. I have seen you empower women and live a life on the fly missing your own life to serve others.
AND NOW I WANT TO GIVE SOMETHING TO YOU!
In creating a photography class for doulas my goals are to:
-Teach a skill that will allow you to diversify your offerings and add birth photography to your birth fee.
-Set yourself apart
