more about me

When I'm not taking photos I'm drinking coffee and trying to find a quiet corner to read in, working on a podcast with my friends, writing the sequel to my recently published novel, Finding Fairy Tales, or experimenting with baking. I live with sisters and nieces, so there's a lot of laughing, way too many kitschy coffee mugs, and a lot of Gilmore Girls in my house.

Being at your side during the birth of your child is a tremendous honor. I understand that childbirth is a momentous occasion, and that it includes all kinds of ups and downs. My goal is to give you a comfortable, non-intrusive experience... to preserve your memories, not to be one of them. Once you hire me, you can consider me a member of your birth support team. Which means just like your doctors, nurses, and midwives... my work is all about you!

Absolutely! If you're within a reasonable distance, I'll do my best to get to you. Keep in mind that every labor progresses at a different rate. The farther away you are from me, the earlier you should notify me!

frequently asked questions

will you travel?

What baby doesn't? That's why once we get your contract signed and your due date on my calendar, I'll be on call from your 38th week of pregnancy to your 42nd. That means my phone is on and near me, we're staying in touch by phone, and I'm ready to go. Bags packed, batteries charged.

I usually also engage a backup photographer just to make sure you're covered in the case of unforeseeable circumstances.

what if my baby comes early or late?

Not everyone is comfortable with birth photography, and that's totally cool. But if you're here, you are wanting to document this baby's arrival! I assure you I make it my business to be as non-intrusive as possible. I want you to feel completely comfortable and at home. And I welcome feedback about how you're feeling!

Labor can be incredibly quick or really, REALLY long. I usually gauge how things feel and make judgement calls about when to shoot and when not to. In the event of a long labor, I may stop shooting, leave the room to give you time to rest or private time with your family, or even catch a nap myself. I aim to capture all the most important moments as well as some in between to give you a beautiful, robust, end product.

Yes, for any of the birth journey packages, a $500 deposit will put your due date on my calendar and secure my on-call time.

is a deposit required?

I do love to show off my work to potential clients. But I understand I'm photographing an intimate time for you and your family. I can share many, few, or none of your photos but I'll never share anything you don't want public. We'll make sure that's all spelled out in the contract, and if there are any judgment calls that need to be made in post production, I'll ask your opinion.


will it feel weird to have a photographer there?

are you going to post my photos anywhere?

Let me know as soon as you think you're in labor! I'll stay in close contact with you and your partner and/or support person, and generally will head your way as soon as "active labor" is confirmed.


when should i let you know i'm in labor?

Absolutely. You will definitely want to make sure you understand your care provider's policies regarding photography, and that they are aware you want a photographer present. That way when your baby comes, everything goes smoothly.



do i need to coordinate with my doctor/midwife?
