The women behind A Birth Revered
We are a team of Denver birth photographers, passionate about elegant storytelling through photography and videography. We have all owned and operated our separate businesses as solo birth photographers, and after years of experience, we understand that together we are stronger. Together we are able to dedicate more of ourselves to our clients and our craft. Through learning from one another and mentoring together, we've aligned our shooting and editing styles to be consistent across the board.
My husband Ben and I are on our own fertility journey, hoping for a tiny squish in the near future. We love backpacking in the wilderness, exploring in our tiny plane, and spoiling our nieces and nephews.
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 helped to save a dog's life during her C-section, I am a chronic 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. My dream superpower has remained the same since childhood: invisibility.
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.
Why birth photography and videography, you ask? Click here to read why I'm so passionate about what I do!
My ‘us’ includes my husband, our 3 they’re-lucky-they-are-so-cute-and-funny kids and our rescue aussie, Kaia.
I believe in fresh starts, long hikes and bucket lists, that God speaks to me most when I’m in the mountains and that reading a good book while lying in a hammock can cure anything.
I strongly dislike socks, pumpkin spice anything, too much routine and 4 way stops.
I found photography years ago as a creative outlet, but I believe birth videography found me. Being invited into such a sacred space is truly an honor. There is nothing more awe inspiring than experiencing a brand new life take their first breath and meet their family. I have found that moments are fleeting and even though we may remember the main details, the small ones, like the sound of baby’s first cry, hearing the gender announced by dad, a sibling saying baby’s name for the first time, those are the ephemeral moments I strive to capture.
I believe that connection is the secret to a happy life. It might sound cheesy, but I'm married to my best friend. Together, we have 5 kids, 3 dogs, and 2 birds - yes, our house is busy, crazy, exhausting, and SO fun.
I've been a photographer for nearly a decade, telling the stories of numerous families, in some of the biggest moments of their lives. To say it is an honor to capture that time, is a complete understatement. I remember their faces, their names, the day their whole life changes. To me, they become family, and you will too.
I believe full hands make full hearts. There will always be dishes in my sink and a little dust on my shelves, because time together is fleeting and chores will be there later. I believe in telling people every day that they are loved and wanted. Dancing and singing obnoxiously through Target is a weekly occurrence- life is my musical (embarrassing my kids is a bonus). I exercise for dessert. Homemade bread, camembert cheese, and sipping from our wine collection make close friends into best ones.
Together, we are better.
Our years of experience have allowed us to refine
the art of capturing birth stories beautifully, while putting
the sanctity of the birthing space foremost.
Does this mean there will be a whole gaggle of photographers at my birth?
Absolutely not. It simply means that you can relax and depend on us. We are so proud to give our clients that ultimate peace of mind, knowing that come full moons and snow storms and 50-Shades-of-Gray-baby-booms, a very experienced birth photographer will be there to capture your most important and fleeting moments.
Will I have an opportunity to get to know each of you?
Yes! We will host quarterly get togethers, and you're invited! Come as often or as little as you like, whether you're a current client, past client, or contemplating birth photography. See the event schedule below.
