Nothing inspires me more than the welcoming of a new life into this world. I've been honored to witness and document 100+ births over the past 7 years. I’m passionate about capturing those small, fleeting, yet tender moments… things parents might not notice even as they’re happening, like dad's reaction as he sees his child for the first time, or sympathetic gestures and auras of love from support people.
When a mom tells me her images allowed her to truly behold the beauty of her story, and to feel empowered and strong and womanly, I know I've done my job.
I was born in Idaho and raised in Fort Collins, Colorado. My husband and I now live in Denver with our large rescue dogs, Gunner and Gertrude. I'm the blessed aunt to five kiddos, I sneeze in sets of 6 or 8, I helped to save a dog's life during her C-section, I am an insomniac, I made the Worst Dressed list during Mercedes Benz Fashion week, I've been frisked in a women's prison in Peru, and I wear boots year-round.
When I'm not on call, I love getting out into the wilderness for challenging backpacking trips with my husband.
I'm thrilled to be adding two of Denver's most loved and talented birth photographers to my team! Read more about them here!
Your baby’s birth story is a sacred and rare event. After working in this industry for several years, I know the importance of having reliable backup photographers on call in the event that I become ill, get caught in a storm, have multiple clients in labor, or encounter an urgent life event.
Because life is beautifully messy, because birth is unpredictable, and because we want our clients to have ultimate peace of mind and confidence throughout pregnancy, we’re partnering together to share call and provide reliable, consistent backup coverage.
We can't wait to meet you in person and daydream about your birth story!
We believe in the sanctity of your birthing space.
We believe in the importance of earning your trust, and never breaching that trust.
We believe in handling your images with utmost respect, and honoring your wishes for privacy.
We believe that women are powerful, intuitive, and know their bodies better than anyone else.
We believe that the mother and her family are the most important people in the room, care providers second, and birth photographers last.
We believe in never infringing on the birthing process.
We believe that it is the duty of every person in the birthing space to support the birthing woman in whatever way she requires.

This is the perfect option for clients who prefer a private birth experience, but still seek to have those first moments captured. This session is held at the birthplace within 48 hours following birth.
A variety of birth photography packages are available, with the option to add on the Maternity Session and Newborn Session for a complete and beautiful birth storybook.
Birth videography packages are newly available in 2017. Booking only one film per month on a first-come basis. Birth story films can also be added to photo packages. Private options available.
The maternity session is an opportunity for a little dress-up and a bit of adventure! Booking priority is given to birth clients.
In-home newborn sessions are convenient and fun! Have a baby, be home, and we do the rest! Booking priority is given to birth clients.
The postpartum herbal bath is loaded with benefits... just one of those being a gorgeous photo opportunity!
Yessireebob, we do give mommies the digital files of their birth stories, and we'd hate for parents to go without an absolutely stunning birth storybook they will treasure, share, and pass down from generation to generation. (Kids love looking through their storybooks and honoring their beginnings!) These books are large, beautifully bound, printed on thick, archival-quality paper made to last, and the pages lay flat for the best possible display. See a sample birth story book.
