Meet Sherida


Sherida is a Published Photographer and Certified Professional Birth Photographer 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.

There's More To Me Than Talent & Skill...

washington dc, wilmington delaware, pittsburgh, richmond virginia home birth photographer | Joli Adore Photography
  • I'm a former certified medical assistant & phlebotomist (phlebotomy cert is still current through 2023). Once upon a time, I aspired to be an L&D nurse.
  • Shoes have no place in my life. None!
  • I like to think of myself as a semi-crunchy natural parent. A little traditional, a little 'give me all of the herbs, essential oils, + organic things!'
  • Inspirational & motivational podcasts and some good ol' 90's throwback jams, please!
  • I think working on your birthday should be outlawed!
  • Road trips, beaches, mountain views, & cabin getaways are my favorite pastime.
  • I used to have a seriously unhealthy addiction to chips.
  • Currently living that dairy-free, plant-based life!

My Tiny Tribe

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.

Let's Work Together
