A lovely Birth Warrior - friend- giving birth in her newly erected Yurt. A loving, gently husband supporting. Midwife, grandparents and sibling circling within the space.

The Birth Warrior moves through our world and our lives with fierce determination, compassion, grace, and freedom. She is passionate about truth, love and knowing. She is a silent tracker, a skilled hunter and fluent in the primal roar!

If you'd like to learn more about birth photography or simplify your birth photography workflow, we'd invite you to explore the following Birth Becomes Her tools: 

Birth Photography Toolkit: You can learn as you go by trial and error over many months and years, or you can take the shortcut of the comprehensive Birth Becomes Her Photography Toolkit. Monet and Jenn sat down and compiled this guide based on their experiences at over 100 births in all types of settings. Topics covered include Birth 101, Birth Etiquette, On Call Life, Camera Settings, Social Media and What to Pack in yourBirth Bag. This resource is the only one of its kind in Birth Photography education.

Lightroom Presets : Birth often takes place in non ideal lighting conditions. These presets were developed by Monet and Jenn to use in their own editing workflow to solve the lighting challenges they commonly faced. When applied upon import into LR these presets can save you hours of editing time and give you the results you want from your photos.
