Jennifer and I created the online course because we were hearing from so many new and beginning birth photographers that wanted better education options. Birth photography is one of the most incredible and growing fields out there...and yet we seriously lacked any type of formal education. Birth Becomes Her aims to fill that gap!Read More
"I had finally bought the last of my home birth supplies and felt ready to have my baby nine days before my estimated due date. My husband went out with my daughter and after I took a much needed nap, I had a sudden burst of energy. I happily cleaned the house to my heart's content without interruption. I joked when my husband came home that Jasper now had my permission to be born. Ironically, just a few hours later while we were laying in bed, I began having some slight bleeding and cramps followed by contractions that were irregular, but gradually getting stronger.Read More
I am SO excited to share this birth story with you! My first time working with the M family was when I captured Kirsten’s maternity photos while she was pregnant with her first baby, a little girl. I then got to capture the birth of Kirsten and Justin’s first born, Baby C, as well as her newborn photos, and it was such a pleasure getting to know this family throughout the process. Needless to say, I was thrilled when Kirsten reached out to see if I was available to document the arrival of baby #2!Read More
It was the morning of the 12th of December in Winnipeg, Mb, Canada; I was asleep, when at around 4 in the morning, I got the call from Brian, Melissa's husband, that things were intensifying, and they believed this was it! and that their midwives had been called over as well. I shot right out of bed, heart racing, eyes widening immediately and a great big grin taking over my no longer groggy face. I zipped through all my things, got some clothes on, whispered to my husband that he was to be in charge on homebase that day because I had to run to a birth! One of the very best things I have to tell him nowadays - see ya Hun! I'm off to do what I love the most!Read More

It's not too often that a birth story like this one happens in Portland, Oregon...
On January 10, 2017, mama Amanda went to the hospital with contractions. Her doula, Jessica, was keeping me informed of how things were progressing. A huge snow storm was predicted for that night. If you didn't know...Portland doesn't really get snow...or I should say, doesn't DO snow very well. Around 5pm with Amanda 4 cm dilated and contractions 4-5 minutes apart, I headed to the hospital in an effort to avoid the chaos that could happen on the roads later in the evening.
