Montana Wedding

So the story goes that they liked me because of my birth work. Ok, well then I loved them at first breath of those words.

The next step of falling for this couple was, when the bride asked how I felt about taking some fun and creative nude engagement photos. Well, hello…you came to the right photographer. In a very open yet wild space, the couple undressed and embraced. Not much needed to be said. I mean, love looks so good in and on the skin. I know they will cherish those brave, vibrant, lusty photos for.ev.er.

lastly, the love continues ( but I gather, our adventure together won’t end with the wedding) ….the wedding was pure, simple, sweet. It was like they were made for the day. Everyone was cheerful, comfortable, TOGETHER.

Your Missoula Birth Photographer

Fresh, just minutes old. If you are a birth, baby, mama geek like me, you are going to be in love with your baby’s fresh head. They smell other worldly- and that totally makes sense to me. Be ready for a surreal, transformational experience.
Consider birth photographer with me, so that I can hand you back a concrete story. I have 9/10 mamas tell me they really couldn’t remember much, or that they had a blurred memory. 10/10 mamas see their birth story and are in awe of moments I documented for them, that they either didn’t know had taken place or just can’t wrap their minds around how I GOT THAT SHOT!
I am there for you. Mikaela Marie DiBerardinis​ and I vlogged yesterday about birth photography and one thing we talked about is how our services are more that just showing up on a spontaneous day at 2am and staying for an unpredictable amount of time ( which that in itself is epic) BUT that we also extend ourselves to being the solid care and peer to touch base with , once we are booked. I have clients text or call and chat about delayed cord clamping, new stretch marks, what they are eating, toddler angst, induction, emotions, and so on. We are part of your birth team. During birth, if applicable – we extend to chat with a nervous dad, or be a lesion to the nursing staff so that Dad can stay by mamas side. I have walked the halls with a client while her husband slept on the couch. I have sat with a mama and watched TV and shared birth/ mama stories- while she labored.
Then take all that- add on the gear, the back up gear, the ability to shoot in any lighting situation.
Then the willingness to hold space and reverence for life and death, and take all those stories home with us, in our minds, body, and hearts.
The service doesn’t end there.
24 hours later a handful of images are already edited and in your email so you can share with family and friends.
4 weeks later 100- 250 edited images are presented to the mama of her Birth Story-of a FAMILY STORY- to cherish and love for a lifetime.
2/3 of my clients become everyday friends- coffee dates, lunches, hikes. No matter what- I always remember you and I always remember your baby and your birth story. ALWAYS.
