About me

I was born and raised in Verona, Italy, where, starting at an early age, my studies of ballet, theater, and contemporary dance whet my appetite for visual beauty. After the birth of my second child, I discovered my true passion and started as a birth doula within the Los Angeles birth community. It was then that I envisioned the possibility of finally putting my visual passion to use—by becoming a professional and certified birth photographer. I recognize the power and strength within you, and I am here to support YOUR vision for the birth of your family and guide you toward making it a reality.

Service introduction

I am passionate about babies. I believe they are the beginning of all that is life—the source of love and healing power to change the world. Each birth is the origin of a new cycle that can transform our universe. Thus, I believe that to make peace with our past, we need to start by healing our births and by giving mothers the care and support they deserve to birth on their own terms. I love to work with families who are open to change and growth and who believe that a safe childhood holds the secret to a healthier planet. As a Los Angeles birth doula and photographer my services strive to create loving, supportive spaces. I am here to inform, empower and advocate with you as you labor, birth, and become a parent.
