Welcome Friends!

I’m your resident portrait photographer, unapologetic tomboy, unabashed reality TV lover (the cheesier the better!) and memory-capturing sidekick. I’m here because I believe that everything happens for a reason.

Cesarean Section Birth Story | Baby A

Marin and her family found me thanks to Houston Midwifery Services and I’m so glad they did! Not only did I get to work with a beautiful family, but I also had the opportunity to experience a cesarean section birth firsthand, which is a very rare occurrence. As a birth photographer, I get to experience the most amazing moments in my clients’ lives right along with them, and I’m so thankful for these opportunities and experiences. This birth story goes down as one of my amazing ones to date, and you’re about to see why in the images below!

Waiting

When I first arrived at the hospital, things were pretty quiet so I focused on capturing the small details and moments that made up this period of waiting.

I rarely get the opportunity to get into a photo with my clients so this next one is so special to me! I love the expressions on all of our faces but mom’s is the best one!

Off to surgery

Marin had to have a cesarean section so when it came time, she said goodbye to her two older sons before heading off to surgery.

The birth

I was so honored to be allowed behind the curtain for a few minutes to capture these amazing images of Marin’s  baby being born via cesarean section. It’s not an opportunity that a lot of birth photographers get to experience and it was nothing short of amazing!
