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 long to support, affirm and celebrate the birth of your baby and your passage into motherhood.....
As an artist and photographer: I long to document these fleeting but powerful moments for you; so that in years from now, when you need to remember how things unfolded...... so that when you walk through the threshold of growing up and growing old,
when you need to touch a time that is no longer tangible, your story, her story, your child's story, will be there.
Being a doula deeply influences my work as well. I believe in the powerful, transformative nature of birth. It is an intuitive and intense experience. Mamas-to-be often dive deep into the interior of their being during labor, needing the emotional and physical support of their birth team. I consider it an honor to not only celebrate the power of birth, but the wonderfully strong nature of our bodies. As a mother of three, I know how important it is to be supported during your labor, and as an artist, and as your photographer, I look to be a quiet, source of feminine strength.
