WELCOME to the blog

A wonderful thing about the birth community in Oklahoma is that it's thriving — and absolutely full of passionate, skilled people who make it their mission to provide the best pregnancy, birth, and postpartum resources possible.

I make it my mission to highlight these people and the incredible information and services they have to offer. Hang out with me here and you'll see my featured births, as well as birth provider features and interviews, and information about a BUNCH of different birth and birth adjacent stuff, like breastfeeding, chiropractic car, nutrition and more. Meet the cool people I meet!

Birth photography has become more and more popular in recent years (at least it seems that way to me, and I don’t think it’s just because I hang out with so many “birth” people) but I still run into people all the time who find the concept foreign. When I tell people I’m a birth […]

I was nervous about baby Ramzi’s arrival for like… eight months. His parents are basically the world’s best clients, but they live two hours away in Tulsa (I’m in Norman), which is basically my travel limit. Not only that, but during our consultation I found out that at least one of this baby’s siblings came […]

Aaaaand we’re back! I know it took me a little longer than usual to get this one up. Birth workers are busy! Today, it’s my pleasure to introduce the team down at Community Midwifery Services in Norman. I’m doing this blog in a little different format than usual, because an interview with five people just […]

I have been a birth photographer for four years now. I did my first birth after my first son was born. I had a friend bring a nice camera to my birth, because I really wanted a video and there were no videographers in Oklahoma at the time. So I had her bring a camera, […]

Last week I had the pleasure of interviewing this lovely lady. I’ve already worked multiple births with her, so I know what an incredible professional she is, and I am so glad to get to introduce her to you in her own words. Deanna Norris is in her final semester at Midwives College of Utah, […]

Yesterday I had the pleasure of having lunch with one of my clients and the rest of her birth team as we celebrated her little one’s birthday. Of course when you get a bunch of birth workers together, they’re going to talk about… you guessed it! Birth. During the conversation, one of the midwives told […]

Okay I should have had this up like two weeks ago, but listen, y’all. I’m BUSY! But this isn’t about me. This is about Avalon and Eddie, and their little chubs. Avalon and Eddie were referred to me by another photographer, and I’m so glad she was booked and I snagged them. We met in […]

I met Jennifer and Jon when I was filming a commercial last year. They were kind enough to volunteer their four children to play the part of school children, and Jennifer played the teacher. Her children were the sweetest and best behaved little actors ever and Jennifer wasn’t bad herself. Her kids were all pretty […]

Baby Zayli’s mama felt guilty about waking up her birth photographer too early, so I got a text at the comfortable hour of 9:30… nearly five hours after her water broke. She wasn’t in active labor yet, so I knew I had some time, but her Duncan, Oklahoma home birth was nearly two hours away […]

Always the Birth Photographer, Never the Mom Okay folks, this is my first blog. So let’s just dive right in and get real, yeah? (Don’t worry, I’m not gonna get depressing!) I’m a birth photographer. And I don’t have any kids. I’m telling you because I know that your pregnancy and birth journey is one […]
