Water Birth at Birth Center; Michigan Birth Photographer

Lisa and I met for coffee in her third trimester with her second child before I relocated to Michigan, as a Michigan birth photographer.  She planned on delivering at Baby and Company.  We talked about her birth plan and wishes during labor.  She wasn’t sure about water birth, but she did feel like her baby…

Michigan Birth Photography, Second Time Mom Has Waterbirth

Michigan birth photography – photographed at the Denver Center for Birth and Wellness.   The sound of the tub filling, and mom stepping into the tub.  She moans as the contractions take over her body, but she stays calm.  Almost zen.  Her husband watches over her with a concerned look on his face – he…

Monet’s Fast Birth Center Birth at Baby + Company, Michigan

When one of my best friends, Monet, found out that she was pregnant, we  started planning her birth and maternity sessions right away.  She’s a fellow birth photographer, so documenting these moments is something deeply important to her.  We chatted about her birth, practically everyday.  When it came time for her Blessingway, I knew that…

Underwater Maternity Photography, Michigan maternity photographer

When I decided that I wanted to add underwater maternity photos to my clients, I wanted to make art with my clients who loved the water.  I wanted each mom to feel like she was floating, comfortable, warm.  Most of all, I want each mom to have fun in the water.  This blog is from…

Colorado Birth Centers

Colorado Birth Centers As a Colorado birth photographer, I’ve attended births at all of the Colorado birth centers.  Living in the Denver metro area, a family can choose between one of four Colorado birth centers to birth their baby.  Imagine birthing your baby in a beautifully decorated space that has all of the comforts of home,…

Avista Hospital Midwives; The Birth of Ollie Joy!

I could tell Casey had an awesome vibe just from the email.  She’s so genuine and happy and I was excited to work with her.  I met both Casey and John for their maternity session in Evergreen and knew they would have a wonderful and supported birth together.  They were so connected and sentimental with…

The Birth of Clementine; VBAC Homebirth Transfer Denver

My VBAC Story It’s been a year, and I haven’t written her birth story.   When I had my first, Magnolia, our birth story unfolded in a way that we would have never imagined.  It was scary, traumatic, and hard on all three of us.  I needed to write it down and get it OUT….

First Baby! Delivered at Castle Rock Hospital, Castle Rock Birth Photographer

Kelsey contacted me looking for a Castle Rock Birth Photographer.  One of the reasons she really wanted birth photography is because her husband works in Alaska for several weeks at a time, and he was out of town up until near her due date.  She was very nervous that he wouldn’t be home and wanted…

Breastfeeding and Motherhood Photography Sessions; Denver Motherhood Photographer

Breastfeeding and Motherhood Time speeds up when you become a mother!  I still remember vividly when I was leaving the hospital after Magnolia’s birth in 2011, I was breastfeeding her in the lobby and a mother with her 9 year old son were sitting next to me.  I was waiting for Josh to get the…

A Change in Birth Plan; Lutheran Hospital, Wheat Ridge Colorado

Birth Story at Lutheran Hospital When it comes to birth plans changing, I know all about how that feels.  I’ve birth two babies in different locations than I planned myself.  So, I’m always sensitive to the families who do have to make a transfer from an out-of-hospital birth, to being in the hospital space.  It’s…

Underwater Photography; Denver, Colorado

I’ve always felt at home in the mountains.  When I moved to Colorado in 2003, I knew this was the place that I was meant to be.  The vast mountains, endless hiking and beauty as far as the eye can see.  But the one thing that I miss from my Michigan roots is the water….
