Homebirth. Hospital birth. Birth Center birth. Water birth. Unmedicated birth. Belly birth. Epidural birth. ALL BIRTH.
No matter what kind of birth, it’s an incredible, life changing event. As a doula, birth assistant and birth photographer I am blessed to be a witness to it, time and time again, and it never gets old.
Nothing shows a woman’s power more than the strength she embodies at her birth.
I believe the impact of your birth experience has far reaching ramifications. It shapes your reality, creates new belief systems…which are then disseminated to your family unit. It impacts the way you parent, how you are able to grow and develop into the “new” individual you are becoming. It impacts future generations.
I believe photography is an incredible tool, to show you your strength, to allow you to step back and see it from another perspective. To allow you to process the ins and outs of this chapter in your life. Because as challenging as this chapter is, it is brief and fleeting, and the feelings will morph and change. It deserves to be remembered. One day, you will be on the other side of it, and the memories will change, and fade, as you change, and grow, and evolve.
Let me hold your hand and gently guide you through this amazing, transformative event. Let me ease your fears, squeeze your hips, wipe your brow, give you information to empower you, hold space for you…..and reflect your story back to you so you can see what an AMAZING thing you did.
