Choosing a certified professional birth photographer means that you're inviting a skilled professional to document one of the best days of your life. A CPBP is equipped to handle not only the technical aspects of photography, but also understands the foundation of the stages of labor, as well as navigating any birth space safely and respectfully, including the operating room.
"AS ONE OF ONLY A FEW BLACK BIRTH PHOTOGRAPHERS THAT SOLELY FOCUSES THEIR CREATIVITY ON BIRTH; MY ASSIGNMENT IS TO CELEBRATE DIVERSITY & INCLUSION NOT ONLY IN THE INDUSTRY, BUT ALSO IN THE BIRTH SPACE."
As a member of the International Association of Professional Birth Photographers, it's my duty to uphold the code of ethics put in place. When you decide to work with me, please know that I do my job with a great level of professionalism, honesty, integrity, and present myself with the utmost respect within your birth space and to the medical professionals that care for you.
When I left my first birth 4 years ago, I was fully persuaded that I too had given birth in that hospital room. My passion for both birth and photography collided that day and my whole perspective about continuing my current career path had shifted. I haven't looked back since. It's with that same energy of determination, passion, and hope that I enter your sacred birth space and visually connect you to the often blurry details of your birth story.
My heart is deeply connected to authentic, candid moments that happen in real life. I see something happening and my mind becomes like a shutter - it's weird! If I don't have my camera in hand, I wish I did; because I NEED to capture that moment in time. I see the extraordinary details. I became a birth photographer so families can focus on one another and leave me to create the dreamy, mind-blowing, memory-inducing photos and videos that brought your family full circle.
While you're giving birth to your baby, I'm birthing your memories - the irreplaceable photos and video of your family that you'll keep forever.
I'm a former teen mom to a small tribe of 3 widely spaced & uniquely gifted children that keep me young at heart.
I'm just like you! I wish my children would stay little & let me hold their hand in public forever. I hold tight to the moments that I realize may change in a year.
I recognize firsthand how important this time in your life is and how quickly it passes. I make it a priority to deliver the results that I know you'll appreciate long after baby has outgrow your lap.
