There is so much beauty here.
Beauty, and magic, and oxytocin flowing- the love hormone. The one that makes us laugh, and cry, and heal. When we snuggle, or kiss, or birth.
In birth, hormones also makes us forget, and this day is so worth remembering.
You want to remember every moment, every detail, this is the beginning of everything.
You want a birth team that can help create an organic everlasting experience, one you will look back on with joy and peace.
You need someone who can hold space for you, while you bring life forth.
Your birth story matters; it deserves to be cherished, to be remembered, to be supported.
I will walk with you, support you, hold space for you, and help you tell your story on this path and journey through motherhood.
My deepest beliefs about birth, life, and our future as a people; are rooted in the importance of caring for birth mothers and their families. I believe that every single birth matters deeply. Every birth story. Every mother. You Matter.
Birth can transform you, heal you, and raise you up. If you are intentional, and educated, there are no limits to how you can grow through this. I bring light, education, an open mind and gentle hands to serve you and support you every step of the way.
My name is Leann Allen.
I am your sacred birth keeper,
your compassionate birth photographer,
your wise storyteller.
Birth is more then something that just happens to us.
It's not something to "get through" It is something to wholly embrace...
I support, capture, and believe in every type of birth.

Birth is a path, a way. It reminds us that we have great power within. If we let it, if we become willing sojourners on this journey, it can open us up to our heart of hearts. Here we will find a place to walk forth with bare feet. We will find magic, life, a little wildwood of opportunity.
If we let it, it will change us; bring us closer to God, closer to our true selves, closer
to one another and to the life that pulses through us all.
My dear mothers, I believe in you and your ability to birth. I believe that with the right team supporting you, your birth can be everything your soul needs it to be. I believe that birth should be left a little wild, that it can not truly (and should not) be controlled. While I honor the sacredness of medicine(herbal and otherwise), and am immensely grateful for its use when needed, I do not believe that pregnancy is a sickness or something to be managed. I believe in informed consent, true options and limitless choices. I believe in family centered birth, and believe that a women deserves to have anyone and everyone she wants present at her birth. I believe humanity trumps policy. I believe in miracles, in prayer, and in the wisdom of all the mothers and birth workers who have come before us.
I also believe in art, in honoring the stories of birth. I believe birth photography can change hearts, empower women, and bring us great healing.
I believe in divine timing, fate, and connections.
If you are reading this right now, perhaps there is a reason.
Lets go have a cup of tea, or coffee, and explore the possibilities.
