Ashley contacted me early in her pregnancy.

Of course she would, if you know Ashley

you know she plans everything waaaay ahead of time.

She has her checklists, and she checks them more than twice.

Ashley knows the importance of birth photography because she has photographed 2 births herself.

During my interview, she asked me an important question:

Why do you like doing births?

My answer:  It feeds my soul

There’s no way I could charge based on the hours I spend being on call for a birth.

I do them because I love them.

Births feed my soul.

Being there when Reagan was born fed my soul.

I hung out a bit with Ashley and John early in her labor.

Then left for a while to give her some space to rest.

I got back just as she was heading to the hospital – hooray!

After a few hours at the hospital, I went home for some rest myself.

Ashly’s sister kept me informed and it wasn’t too long before I headed back to the hospital.

Ashley was, what’s the best word?


She’s a warrior.  Amazing. A rock star.

And John….

there every step of the way.  I captured so many images of

their connection.

Ashley was determined to have a natural birth (I told you about her planning skills, right)

and she did just that.

Women are amazing.

Ashley is amazing.

Reagan has one lucky little girl.

Of course, what’s a birth without a birth slideshow.

I know my fans (and Ashley’s friends and family)

want to see more than just pictures.

Birth slideshows make me smile on the inside and out.

Enjoy  (and grab a tissue).

If you are pregnant and thinking about birth photography, call me, please.

Having someone there to take pictures, is not the same as having

a professional photographer capture the birth of your child.

Let the people in your life hold your hand, support, & coach,

and let me hold the camera & celebrate life.
