My love for Birth Photography emerged after I attended my first birth as a doula. What's a doula you say? The word "doula" comes from the ancient Greek meaning "a woman who serves" and is now used to refer to a trained and experienced professional who provides continuous physical, emotional and informational support to the mother before, during and just after birth. When I was hired to attend my client's birth as a doula, she knew I was also a photographer and asked me to photograph her birth as well. That experience was life changing for me and I knew that I had found my two true callings in life; to support women and to create and preserve beautiful memories for families while on their birth journey.
