All birth. Easy birth. Hard birth. Vaginal birth. Cesarean birth. Birth that goes exactly to plan. Birth that veers off course. Birth is beautiful.
I believe that birth doesn't have to be scary. I believe that knowledge and support can demystify this experience and make it a good one.
I believe a woman’s strength is never showcased better than in the moments she works to labour and birth. That these trials uncover power she may not have known she had. That surrender itself is powerful.
I believe birth is a stunning love story. I see love in these moments of connection and support and discovery.
I believe whether you felt supported, empowered and heard during your birth is one of the biggest factors in having positive memories of your birth.
I believe photographs allow us to freeze these incredible moments. I believe they can be can healing, strengthening, redemptive.
I believe you deserve to be supported in your journey, and look back on this experience with such positive memories.

I've been immersed in the Winnipeg doula and birth world since 2006, but my desire to care for people started long before that. I was on my way to becoming a clinical psychologist when I discovered what a doula was, and the rest is history. Birth and this monumental transition fascinated me- and being able to apply what I'd learned in psychology as I held space for these strong families? It couldn't get any better.
I still get to offer authentic support to amazing clients, but I get to do so on some of the biggest days of their lives. My degree collects dust, and it doesn't bother me a bit. Adding photography into my doula work was a natural step after seeing how powerful my own birth photos were in my journey to motherhood. They helped me to see such strength and beauty in these incredible moments that were already fading from memory.
I want to chat with you more about your birth. I want to know what makes you tick, what you're afraid of, and what moments have you giddy with joy and anticipation. I hope you'll take a look around my little home here, and shoot me a message when you're ready to meet. I can't wait!
