How has birth changed you as a woman? It’s very empowering. It’s like the final stamp on womanhood. If you can create life, nurture life, and bring life into this world then what is there you can’t do?!
What advice do you wish you had known before giving birth (even if it’s something gross)? There is no advice that can prepare you for giving birth and the recovery.
Tell us a little about your birth story? Arrived at the hospital at 5am for an induction. 10 hours of labor and 2 hours of pushing later she finally made her appearance.
What are your 3 must have birth bag items? Warm fuzzy nonskid socks (the hospital ones are terrible), hair ties, and lip balm.
What is one thing you find beautiful about birth? Life. The moment you meet this little person who has kicking and squirming for months is worth every moment of discomfort.
What would you tell someone who just found out they were pregnant? Congratulations, sleep and pamper yourself a lot!
What are your beauty must haves while pregnant? Sugar lip products, palmers stretch mark lotion and butter, chemical free nail polish.
Kind words about your photographer? She’s phenomenal. I’ve never seen anyone capture life in stills the way she does. Her sweetness and caring nature comes across in her work.
My classical education in photography and in the arts are what I believe set me apart. There is more to documenting a wedding than pressing the shutter of an expensive camera. There is light to consider, composition, and the mood of the moment. The story I am trying to tell. Noticing the small details, anticipating moments and correctly framing scenes, all come together when I create images.
I consider myself to be a mix of a Documentary, Lifestyle & Fine Art photographer. I like for my posed images to have an easy, editorial, romantic look, and for my candids to have an authentic & timeless quality about them. After your wedding I will spend the next few weeks carefully editing & curating each photo, so as to give you the most beautiful images possible.
