Holistic Collaboration. When you book your Birth Story with me. Choose from your mini maternity session, or substitute your session for a Skin to Skin post partum massage with Wildly Essential Doula services, or a Mother Blessing or Healing session with Tree of Life Doula!!! Wow!!! Mention this collaboration when booking your Birth Story.
I am a lover, a mother, a dreamer, a dancer, an artist. I work in a way that creates a positive feedback loop- so you can reveal your essence to me. Whether we are creating art with your family or just your solo bones on a mountain top, my vision is grounded in the skin! I look for the skin & connection to be revealed. Our bodies are our roadmaps. I ‘m looking for the details of your life in the way you move and breathe and interact with your own energy, your location and those you love.
My studio & on location work is for the humans invested in this visceral life and tangible art. We will create imprints on your soul and memories for your hands and walls- REFLECTIONS.
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.
