The birth of a child is one of the hardest, most life changing & emotional days you’ll experience in your life. Documentary photography is a beautiful, unscripted style of photography that captures real life stories in a uniquely intimate way – no posing, no prompting, no intervention.

I have been blessed to watch several humans enter Earthside & it continues to be one of my most cherished genres. Since covid changed healthcare, I haven’t been able to continue to offer birth photography in the capacity I had wanted to, but it feels important to me to continue to showcase this area of my work.

For me, birth is a journey 2 parents (and sometimes a whole family) go on together. I capture joy, excitement, anticipation, anxieties & all the other emotions expecting & new parents will feel. So much of this time wouldn’t be remembered without the visual aid that photography provides.

I have always worked unobtrusively and candidly, capturing as many raw & honest storytelling moments as possible. I truly believe that the birth of a child is a hugely empowering event in your life, & the moments captured can make a real difference on how positively a family views their birthing experience.

Birth photography has also be hugely cathartic for me, and redeeming in respect to my own births. I’m a mum of two.

Births are a private & personal experience, & I join my families & their medical team with trust & respect, aiming to be little more than a fly on the wall during their experience.
