BIRTH is BIRTH no matter how it unfolds,

no matter how your family comes into being.

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

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

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….

holding space for the ordinary and the everyday, for the extraordinary of your birth

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.

I believe deeply in the transformative nature of birth.

 

As a doula and a midwife's assistant, I have come to revere the nature of birth beyond anything I thought possible. It is truly both an art and a science
