The whole point of woman-centered birth is the knowledge that a woman is the birth power source. She may need, and deserve, help, but in essence, she always had, currently has, and will have the power.

Birth Stories

My goal is to document the birth of your child in a way that you won’t even know I’m in the area. Birth is such an important time, not only in a woman’s life, but the whole family, it’s the welcoming of a new life into this world.

So why even hire a birth photographer you ask? 

Well, at times, as birthing mamma’s we forget how much support we had, how we looked, what was going behind the scenes, the details in the home/hospital … having a photographer during this important moment allows you to keep the moment tangible and alive, while your significant other pays 100% attention to you.

Allow me the opportunity to capture this AMAZING moment in your life.

Birth Stories require a $300 non-refundable initial payment to month around due date. 

 
 

Father Testimonial

Initially when my wife and I were discussing birth photographers my thought was “do I really want someone there photographing such a private and intimate experience?” My wife felt strongly about having Shirley present at our birth to capture the moments to look back on.

I was still hesitant going into the birth because I didn’t want the photographer taking away from the experience or making herself present during our birth. I also didn’t want my wife to be affected by having photos taken but she was unaware of Shirley’s presence. I’m so glad we went through with having Shirley there as those are some of my favorite images to look at. There’s no way I could forget that day but being able to look at the images makes the memory flood back much more vividly.

I was nervous about her presence but she was able to remain in the background during the whole experience until it ended with our baby boy arriving earth side. She then took some posed pictures that I am so grateful for also.

I would suggest anyone wanting to remember the special day of their child’s birth to have a birth photographer present. Especially Shirley, she rocks.
