About me

After becoming certified with DONA as a labor doula I joined my education, experience, and creativity with becoming a lifestyle photographer and have since been serving the greater Austin area. My goal is to empower new and expecting families with fact-based information, and unyielding support. Simultaneously, I enjoy capturing the moments that define your life-- whether that is working together prenatally, documenting your family’s connection, or joining you in your intimate birth experience. If it’s part of your life, I’m IN! There’s nothing I love more than connecting with others. I’m a firm believer in treating others the way you want to be treated, so I view every client like they are a treasured friend. If this sounds like what you’re looking for, let’s grab coffee and get to know one another. I can’t wait to give you a big ole’ hug and welcome you to the Carley E. fam.
