Birth story photography is an incredible gift that you can experience over and over again. Moments preserved in time to relive and to share with your loved ones. Capturing the intensity and pure joy that resides in giving birth is nothing short of amazing! And being able to piece together and capture those moments for families to enjoy has truly become a passion for me! As of mother of two-I've been there. I know there are ups and downs. Strengths and weaknesses. Tears of pain and tears of joy. I'm not only there to photograph your birth in it's entirety, I'm there to support you. Prior to booking your birth story, I insist on meeting you to answer any questions, address any concerns, and most importantly to show you my personality, heart and soul.

Ceeley's story is an emotional one to share. She was a trooper. 9 hours of labor. Painful, rhythmic, natural labor. After a painful experience getting an epidural to relieve the intensity...the delivery started to go south. The baby was struggling. Just like that. The whole mood changed. Fear, sadness, and anxiety set in. The baby's heart rate was dropping, and not recovering. It was time for a c-section...like 5 minutes ago. As Ceeley was wheeled back, Ty was getting his scrubs on in a hurry and told they would come get him in a minute after they got Ceeley ready. Well, there was no time for that. She was put under, and we were left standing there, waiting for any word, any baby cry or prayer answered. Then we heard: Taysen was born, and Mom was stable...the best outcome possible. Turns out the baby's umbilical cord was only 8 inches long! Which is very rare and was putting so much stress and strain on both baby and Mom as the labor progressed. She was able to see her sweet baby's face a little over an hour after he was born into the World. It was truly beautiful to watch. She was such a warrior...all 3 of them were! I've never seen two people work together through the pain and emotion like Ty and Ceeley. I am so honored to have been there with them on this day, and so thankful that I could give Ceeley a play by play of her delivery day...since she wasn't there for some of it. You amazed me, Ceeley!
