I started my photography journey in about 2007, and was reborn into photography on January 26, 2016.  I got to know one of my very good friends and she eventually asked me to photograph her birth, the whole thing.  At the time, I had no idea this was possible.  Having no children of my own, I was a bit new to the process of childbirth.

On that day, I quickly learned many things.  Mostly that birth was beautiful.  She had so much strength, and then humour, and then loud cries into the night.  And I was awestruck.  That she let me into that private moment, that she at one point was laughing and making jokes, that she then birthed an almost ten pound baby and looked better than I do on a Saturday morning.

I could not believe that women did this every day with so much strength.  When I left the hospital that morning, I knew this was what I had been waiting for my whole life, it was my purpose.

 If you are still interested in getting to know me, let me take you out for a coffee to your favourite coffee shop and I can answer any questions you may have about who I am, and what birth photography could mean for you.
