First off let me start by saying congratulations on your pregnancy!!! This is such an exciting time with so many moments you'll cherish the rest of your life.
I know there are tons of local photographers to weed through when searching for a professional birth photographer, with that said I thought I would tell you a little about myself.
I am a photographer with over 16 years of experience. I specialize in lifestyle portraits and take a journalistic approach to birth, newborn and family portraits. I believe this style allows me to not only provide beautiful portraits for my clients to cherish for generations to come, but to create a story that can be shared.
That's what birth photography is all about. Being able to really create and tell the entire birth story.
Because I love birth and newborn sessions so much, I hope to be able to provide support during the labor and birth process as well as capture the precious moments of labor and delivery for my clients.
A little additional background on me ... I am a member of the International Birth Photographers Association as well as a member of the Newborn Photographers Association. I have been recently screened and had a background check done as well.
If you are in the market and searching for a Birth Photographer and/or Newborn Photographer, I would love the opportunity to meet with you and your spouse and/or labor coach. I believe meeting with my clients prior to a birth is 100% necessary to making sure all questions are answered and that we are able to connect.
I hope we get a chance to meet.
