As a child, I used to comb through my mother’s ancestry photos and wonder at how amazing it was that moments could be preserved for hundreds of years! I guess it should come as no surprise to me now that I love doing just that for others.
I’ve loved photography for as long as I can remember, especially black and white photography. My first experience in studying photography came in high school with a dance photography course. My time in the dark room was short lived, but kindled a passion that would soon become a huge part of my life. When I gave birth to my first child, I felt inspired to dust off the old camera and document our beautiful life as a new family. I’ve been married for 17 years now and have 4 beautiful (and well photographed) children, and what started as a convenient hobby has blossomed into a love for snapping the rare, magical moments that all families experience…
I began my photography business in 2009 and it has taken me in a direction I would never have dreamed possible. In 2011 I photographed my first birth, the birth of my niece, and I was hooked. In 2013 I was named Best Birth Photographer in the Austin Birth Awards and began specializing in birth photography and lifestyle newborn photography. I have been published in Midwifery Today many times and my birth photography has been featured in a variety of forums.
I’m not sure I can adequately express how much I love birth photography and how fulfilling a calling this is for me. Sure it’s amazing to witness so many babies come into the world, but more than that I treasure the joy it brings parents to have their birth story captured, and their confidence in my understanding of childbirth and respect for the birth environment.
