You will never regret the photos you have.
But you will regret the ones you don't have.

I wish I had known birth photography was a thing...
Becoming a mom is definitely the coolest, hardest, most rewarding yet thankless thing I’ve ever done. Labor was HARD, and while each one was different, I was incredibly proud of myself and my body both times.
I wish I had known birth photography was a thing when I had my babies. I wish someone had come to me and said “hey, you’re going to forget so much of this. Get someone to take photos”.
Now I document birth stories because I know how precious these memories are, and how painful it can be to only remember bullet points from the best days of my life...
Birth will transform you - and that transformation deserves to be documented, celebrated, and remembered. Your birth story matters. Your role as a mother matters. Sure, I love to photograph the babies - but my heart is with helping you feel seen and special, too.

Me being a total weirdo...
just a neurospicy mama raising neurospicy kids...
I think being neurodivergent is a superpower. Seriously.
BUT, it can make traditional family photos hard...
I used to buy my kid a pair of jeans every year for pictures. He hated wearing jeans. And now I have all of these photos of him wearing pants he hated and never wore in real life, while miserably trying to smile and make me happy. I wish someone would've told me it doesn't have to be that way.
That's why my approach to family photos is different.
Yes, ALL kids are hard. And I don't know a single kiddo who would rather take family photos than play. But if you have neurospicy kids, then you know what I mean when I say it's a whole different ball game with them...
If my kids have taught me anything though, it's to let go of perfection, enjoy the chaos, and be present with what is.
I don't know about you, but I want to remember the fun we had together more than the challenges of raising them...

The sweetest words
"Looking at birth photos (again) and [baby] came and sat with me. She was very interested in the photos, and seemed particularly fond of the ones you captured of our “love at first sight” moments. I am forever grateful to you for getting every detail when I was in such a fuzzy state and could only remember some of the major parts, but not the little ones (like how sweet her little feet were in my hands). You are the best ❤"
