Giving Back with Birth Photography You guys. I’ve got news for you. I’m really excited to announce that I’ve partnered with an organization called Hands Producing Hope, giving back through birth photography. They’re right here in Baton Rouge, and an organization that’s special to me for a lot of reasons. I’m pretty pumped to tell […]

Cultural birth photography at Woman’s Hospital was a new experience for me at this birth session. But, if there’s one thing that I’ve learned in my work as a birth photographer, it’s that motherhood is a universal language. It ties us all together with common experiences–despite differences in the tongues that we speak. I met […]

I’ve got a really special story to share with you guys on the blog, today. And it’s not a sad one, not really. It’s a story of hope, and love, and faith – and a whole lot of baby magic. Super-mom Elizabeth has graciously written their family’s rainbow baby birth story for the blog today. […]

This birth photography session at Woman’s Hospital in Baton Rouge was an extra-special one. One of the greatest privileges I experience is being asked to document sibling births. It’s an honor to be trusted with a couple’s first birth. But it’s an extra special honor to be trusted again! When Meredith and Jesse asked me […]

What an emotional birth photography story this was! When I met with Katie about documenting her birth story. I knew immediately that we were going to be a great fit for one another. And have an epic journey to document. Connecting with and being on the same page with one another is so important when […]

What to Pack in Your Hospital Bag   So, you’re having a baby! Congrats. It’s one of the most wonderful (and most terrifying) times in your life. I’ve had two of my own little humans, so between that and having photographed a LOT of births in the Baton Rouge area, I’ve learned a thing or […]

This. Family. Let me tell you about this family, guys. They *get* it – they really¬†get the value of birth images – the value of images in general, really. This was the second time that I had the privilege of photographing a birth for them. And I was not joking when I told them that […]

It’s always a pleasure, photographing a birth at Woman’s Hospital in Baton Rouge. I documented this birth for a fellow photographer recently, and got the opportunity to meet this lovely couple and watch their beautiful little boy come into the world–and it was such a pleasure! I’ve often been asked how we birth photographers juggle […]

I’m *so* excited that these two decided that they wanted to document their birth story. Jacky and Sunny are good friends of mine, and they were initially a little hesitant about the prospect of birth photography (understandably!). Since they weren’t finding out the gender beforehand, though, they ultimately decided that they did want to document […]

I got to be a Birth Photographer for one of my favorites at the Woman’s Hospital. Kayla is a labor and delivery nurse with whom I’ve worked before. She is legitimately one of the sweetest people I know. I was so glad to be there with her and her gorgeous little family for this new […]
