Below you will find the birth stories of beautiful mothers and their families.
Told through journalistic birth photography.
Birth is wild, beautiful, powerful. Within each moment, I look for the strength. Within each story, I try to find the light, the emotion, the moments that make us human. To connect us, raise us up, empower us. I try to capture moments that represent all walks of life, that speak of disparities, and demolish stereotypes. Fathers that love and cry for their children in strength. Women of color breastfeeding gloriously. Siblings being a positive active part in labor and birth. Mothers showing awe and pride for their changed bodies. Incredible beautifully messy birth.
With words of truth and with a spirit that holds space for these families, I have done my best to tell their story as it unfolded from my perspective, from my unique lens. With empathy and courage I share these stories. My hope is that my words bring honor to these memories- that both amazing and hard moments can be lifted up. And that others can find inspiration, representation, and space here as well. I ask that as you read you hold space for these beautiful people, give me grace for when my words fail, finding instead the truth of moments in the photographs I have so carefully created for such. A photo is worth a thousand words, and these
birth stories can express multitudes.
