I am so excited to finally share this beautiful birth story of John Tito, born at home. I just adore this family. I met them in 2018, when I documented their first delivery at home. I was in awe of the love they had for each other, and the strength of this incredibly powerful mama. […]

One of my favorites ways to reflect on 2019 in review is to select favorites from each session, bringing them all together in a collection at the end of the year. It is such a beautiful way to wrap up, and a reminder of just how blessed each year has been. This year… I am […]

The Birth of Silas James I know I have said it before, but by the time I document these beautiful birth stories I have become so invested in the story that is so unique to each birth. After being a labor and delivery nurse here for the past 19 years (I retired this past March), […]

I am so excited to share this beautiful birth story with permission from both this beautiful family and their surrogate. I am so excited because it is such a beautiful story of hope and love all the way through.
I received an inquiry from Lizi (the surrogate} back in April as she searched for a local photographer to document this birth. I have to say that when she told me it was a surrogate birth, my heart skipped a beat. I have dreamed of documenting one of these because I am so fascinated by the women who are willing to carry for another couple. It is a true selfless act, and brings such hope and joy to the families that hire them.

August has been my busiest birth month to date. I took on more birth clients this month than I ever had in the past because each one was so unique and special ( I still have one more to go at this point).
I limit the number of births I take a month to ensure that I am available when you go into labor, no matter what time of day it is. I don’t book much of anything else while on call for birth for the same reason.
Sarah Beth is local photographer and dear friend. She is an extremely talented newborn and birth photographer (in fact we are each other’s birth back ups!), you need to check out her work! Sarah Beth Chamberlain Photography.

What I really love about documenting birth is that each and every birth story is so unique and different. Even within the same family, you just never know how things are going to go. There is so much story to tell, and so many details to each birth story that make it unique and special. Sometimes when we are in the midst of birth we are so focused on being in that moment that we don’t see just how strong we are or do we have the privilege of seeing all that is going on around us, and that is part of what I strive document. I want you to remember the moments from your birth that will transport you back to that flood of love, those first moments with your baby, and to see the strength and love present around you!

I have known Sheeva for quite some time as we used to work labor and delivery here together in Las Vegas. She moved on to another facility and I have since retired, but was so excited when she reached out to me early in her pregnancy to book her birth session with me. I truly am honored that she chose me to document such a huge moment in her life for her.
Her last baby was taken whisked away and taken to the NICU right after delivery
