Midwifery Assistant & Childbirth Educator
Certified Doula (ICEA)
I have passion and expertise for documenting and supporting women and their families in the transformation of motherhood and parenthood. The stories I have had the honor of documenting never get old, yet one day they will be considered old. When we take time to capture these rare moments that are happening today, we are also preserving details that will make up our history. The births for my two children were starkly different, but I am thankful for the beauty and empowering experience each one held. The birth of my first started me on the journey of becoming a birthworker. Her birth was exactly the opposite of what I thought I was prepared for. I quickly realized how much more there was to learn and how much I wanted to be able to capture the beauty and rawness found in birth stories. I have spent countless hours working to perfect the art of birth photography and laboring with a woman. I am trained a doula through ICEA, have worked as a Mentor Doula training doulas at a local Sacramento hospital, been as staff doula at a local birth center, trained as a midwifery assistant, assisted for 3 local midwifery practices, trained as childbirth educator and co-teach BioMechanical Birth classes. I have attended over 120 deliveries, each one perfectly its own story. My vast experience of birth from hospital (unmedicated, medicated & surgical) to birth center and homebirth deliveries allows for well rounded and experienced support in all prenatal, birth, postpartum choices. This experience allows me smoothly and effectively document stories as well. The birth room wherever it might be is like a second home to me. With my passion, wide experience and expertise I strive for families to feel safe, supported and empowered to make informed choices as they transition into their new stage of life all while documenting the story along the way.
I gladly offer complimentary consultations to all potential clients. The goal of our consultation is to answer any questions you might have, discuss the details of my offerings and process of working together, to help me understand what your hopes are for your birth, and finally it gives us a chance to get to know each other. By covering all these things I hope to enable clients to make an well informed decision on if I am the right birth photographer and or doula for them.
