The birth of Charleigh happened in the wee morning hours. Her mom gracefully pushed her into the world and caught her with the help of her husband and amazing midwives. It was such a peaceful and beautiful birth.
Want to see the magic of hiring a professional photographer to shoot your birth? Some are subtle and others are quite dramatic changes. I hope you enjoy!
Not a birth but I love this milk bath before and after too!
I am looking to document a few diverse families over the next couple of months. I would love to highlight the last days of pregnancy, early postpartum period as well as everyday family life. If you fit into any of these categories and are interested please fill out the form below.
The sessions will be mostly documentary style so I will not pose you at all. All model families are required to sign a model release and photo agreement allowing me to use the images. In return, your family will receive an online gallery of the best images from our session together to download.
Newborn lifestyle sessions are so fun! I love how relaxed they are and how to capture the essence of a family! We had so much fun capturing what newborn life was like with Griffyn and his big brother! Thank you for inviting me into your home! <3
What better way to spend the morning than this sweet family and their brand new baby! Baby J fits right in with her two older siblings and they adore her! Thank you for letting me capture your day! <3
When I heard Hilari was expecting again, I was so excited! I had the privilege of capturing the birth of her second child a couple years ago and couldn't wait to see her rock her first homebirth!
Hilari's faith played a pivotal roll in Josie's birth and she couldn't have picked a better birth team!
Can I just say our local birth community is amazing!

Chris was expecting her second child when we took took her maternity photos! What better way to celebrate your upcoming birth when you are a yoga instructor than doing a little yoga. She rocked it at 38 weeks!

What a honor and privilege it was to walk along side Camila and Brandon as they welcomed their little girl into the world through a beautiful family centered cesarean.
What a beautiful homebirth!
During this crazy flu session I was called to Ashton's birth as a back up photographer. Mom and dad worked seamlessly together the whole time and their midwives (My Sister's Keepers Midwifery) were amazing. I am so thankful for the birth community I am apart of and so honored a fellow photographer, Lane B photography, would trust me to take care of her clients.
Emry was born in the wee hours of the morning. She came fast and furious a week before her due date. Her older sister is head over heels in love with her and it is the sweetest thing to watch. <3 Congratulations you guys!
Fast and Furious Natural Hospital birth!
It was an honor to be invited back to shoot the birth of Kaley's second son! She was my first repeat client!

You are truly amazing! <3

This past June Celebrate Birth Midwifery celebrated 10 years of serving families in DFW! Christy and Jamie have poured their hearts into our community and to see all of the families they have had an impact on is incredible! They are dedicated, loving, knowledgeable, supportive, and an all around amazing pair. I can not recommend them enough. DFW is lucky to have them!
If you are searching for an incredible out of hospital birth team, they should definitely be on your list of midwives to interview! <3
In the world of birth worth back-ups are a necessity! I had to opportunity to back up for Whitney Lott a couple months ago. Baby C's parents were incredible, they worked together seamlessly! The room was filled with worship music and so much love. This was one of the most calm births I have ever attended. It was amazing to watch these two becomes parents. Thank you for allowing me into your birth space!
I have followed this family through maternity, birth and now newborn! They are an amazing family and it was so much fun to photograph this journey for them! <3
I love shooting all births but there is somethings special about surprise gender births!
Chanel labored beautifully at home all day. Her daughter was such an amazing little doula and her husband and sister were great support! Right at rush hour we knew it was time to head to the hospital. Thankfully we were about to make it to the hospital in record time because little Tucker arrived fast and furious 30 minutes later! Chanel got the water birth she wanted and had a room of amazing supporters surrounding her! Tucker's birth was absolutely beautiful and he was such as sweet surprise. <3 Thank you so much for inviting me into your birth space, you are an amazing and strong woman!
I had the pleasure of shooting Chanel's maternity lifestyle session recently! Her family is too precious! <3
Check back over the next couple of days for their birth and newborn lifestyle session!!
It is hard to believe that it has been 2 years since Linkyn was born! He has grown in to such an adventurous, fun-loving boy! <3
