What is your photo sharing policy?
~ I will never share anything without your written permission
What if your gear fails at our birth?
~ I bring four cameras to each birth, just in case. I also carry extra lenses, batteries, memory cards, chargers, and flashes.
Do you have a dedicated backup?
~ I do! My doula partner, Gina of The Sown Seed, is an experienced birth photographer with a photojournalism degree. If she’s ill or already at a birth, I have a few other contracted backup photographers whose work I love and who I trust to represent me at your birth.
How many births have you attended?
~ I stopped counting at 50. I documented my first birth in November of 2016 and it’s been a whirlwind of preserving pivotal moments, empowering women to take charge of their births, helping the world open up their minds to the beauty of birth, and inspiring more human connection ever since.
Do you have professional training? What are your qualifications?
~ In addition to my years of experience as a photographer and my hands-on experiences at many births, I have also completed DONA birth doula training, CAPPA postpartum doula training, childbirth ed, breastfeeding ed, a Spinning Babies workshop for birth workers, HypnoBirthing doula training, and more!
When will we see our photos?
~ I’ll deliver a handful of sneak peeks within 24 hours of baby’s birth. Your full gallery will be ready within two weeks of baby's birth.
When should we book you?
~ Honestly, as soon as possible. My calendar fills up months in advance and I can only take a small number of clients per month.
What if it takes a really long time?
~ Then I’ll be with your for a really long time. That’s one of the many joys of birth work; it’s so unpredictable. I never know when I’m going to be called in to document a birth and, once I’m there, I never know when I’ll be heading back home again. It’s such a thrill!
What if I go into labor early?
~ Tell me. I’ll be there for you.
