High school graduation. Your wedding day. The birth of your children. Some moments in life stand out.
As a Winnipeg Birth Photographer, I am honored to give families the opportunity to permanently preserve those moments for you for years to come. By hiring a Birth Photographer, you are able to capture the tiny details, and the big moments, that may otherwise fade from memory. The soft touch of a favorite nurse, reassuring words your partner whispered into your ear, and moments of both focus and frustration take stage beside the first look exchanged between mama and baby, a new latch, the meeting of older and brand new siblings. Each is unique, each is important.
Birth photography tells your story organically as it unfolds. No props, no posing, just a beautiful look at the strength and love shown as your family grows. During your pregnancy we will talk about which images you are most excited about capturing- and which you'd rather not! Not all birth stories feature baby emerging, and that's ok! Some families prefer to focus on the emotions, connection and new baby love of the day. All of this will be discussed ahead of time. The end result is a collection of photos that tells your unique story in a way that is tailored to your preferences.
Birth photography and Fresh sessions are offered for the Winnipeg area, at all home, hospital and birth centre births. I am currently accepting clients for Spring 2018 and onwards.
Contact me today, I'd love to be your Winnipeg Birth Photographer!

Pure package is a perfect sampling of photos to tell the highlights of your birth story. Pure is an add on package available for clients already using Embrace Birth Services for birth doula services. I work with your family to provide both doula and photography during these sacred hours.
Photos tend to have a focus on the pure first moments with baby, although labor and birth images will be included as well. Pure includes 20 images and is a perfect complement to your doula service, freezing those precious early moments. Investment for Pure birth photography package is $200.
Capture is your dedicated Winnipeg birth photography package, focused solely on documenting each memory as you move from labor through birth to first moments with your new little one. Capture includes continuous attendance at your birth from active labor until one hour postpartum, and allows me to document the big moments-- moment of birth, first glances of baby, parent reactions, as well as the work, dedication and connection showcased during labor. Sometimes the story is all in these simple details.
Investment for your Capture package is offered at a discounted portfolio building rate of $650 (Regular investment of $1000).
Fresh captures those precious new baby moments that fade from memory all too soon. Often called a Fresh 48 package, this takes place in hospital or home during daylight hours in the first 48 hours after birth, and lasts approximately an hour. Fresh showcases newborn details, early snuggles and feeding, sibling meetings and new family moments. This session focuses on capturing the natural moments as they unfold, rather than being posed or stylized, and props will not be used. Fresh package investment is $200 and includes 20 edited images.
