the experience of your birth is just

as important as your pictures of it.

Listen Linda, your birth experience matters to me.  I'm not just A photographer, I'm a BIRTH photographer.  It's my calling.

That means I don’t just dabble in birth sessions because I got a random inquiry for one.  It’s not an after thought on my services page. I don’t squeeze them in with weddings, families, seniors, etc. to be the Walmart of photographers.  BIRTH is what I do. And I do it well, if I do say so myself **pats self on back while tooting own horn**. 

 

I’m educated about birth, beyond just my own personal experience. I am a cerified birth photographer AND a certified doula.  I LOVE BIRTH.

 

I respect the sacredness of your birth space and your own individual needs and wants. I love helping my clients not only capture but create the birth experience of their dreams.  

 

When I become your birth photographer, I am FULLY invested in you and your experience.  It’s what I live for. Aaaaand we’ll probably become friends through the process. Just sayin’.

 

That’s what you need for this journey.  You don’t need someone who can take decent shots with studio or sun light.  You don’t need a photographer friend who takes lovely family photos but knows nothing about birth.   You need the chick who lives and breathes birth, and who knows how to document your story so that when your memory fades, the pictures take you right back.  

 

(Spoiler alert - it’s me.  I’m that chick).

Your new best birth friend

Hey!

I'm Leslie

I believe in the beauty and power of birth - and it's my mission to show YOU how amazing you are during this transformation.  Not only will you feel like the most powerful badass in the world looking back on your birth images, but you'll also have some pretty special memories of the best day of your life to keep forever. 

The two days I gave birth were my most proud.  Never before (or again) have I accomplished such a difficult, emotional or rewarding goal.  And my children are the best prize ever for that hard, transformational work.

 

I was so "in the zone" during labor that most of my memories of that day are a complete blur.  My babies births weren't photographed.  Well... not professionally anyway.  And the few images their dad snapped during my labor and delivery have since been lost.  ​
 

I will NEVER get those moments back. 

So, now I offer birth photography for moms who don't want to gamble with these precious memories.  They want their baby's birthday documented so those memories are preserved and protected forever. 

Hindsight is 2020.  Girl, don't make the same mistake I did....

When I'm not obsessing over birth or editing in my jammies, I'm either watching "The Office" with my fuzzy socks on, breaking up a fight between my kids, or finding any excuse I can to go to Starbucks.

I'm a crunchy mom at heart and yoga is my drug of choice (unless it was a really bad day - then only wine will do).  Fair warning - I talk about mucus plugs and placentas like they're everyday topics - much to the embarrassment of my 13 year old.  Oops.
