This beautiful mama found me after they moved to Las Vegas as she began her search for a midwife and birth photographer. I am so happy she found me! They had so much to do while searching for care after moving mid-pregnancy, finding care that they felt confident in, and organizing their new home. I […]

I am so excited to share another beautiful birth story from 2019. This mama found me over the summer as she was looking for a birth photographer for her third baby.

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.
