Sarah photographed my wedding, maternity photos, and birth photos. When I reached out to her about maternity shots, she informed me about her birth work and I was intrigued! I hadn't thought about having my birth experience photographed. I am so glad we chose to have Sarah there for our birth. She was an additional calm, loving presence filled with respect and awe. Genuinely it felt like I had a trusted friend by my side while she was in our birth space. Her presence was quiet, sweet, and I don't think I registered that she was even taking photos. After the magical birth of our daughter, I couldn't imagine how the photos might look. I was off in labor land, not posing! The photos of our birth experience are some of the most touching, beautiful, and incredible photos I've ever seen. She captured the love, the beauty, the spirit of who we are. I would highly recommend Sarah to anyone looking for beautiful work, amazing companionship, and someone to honor their birth experience.

Sarah was phenomenal at the home birth of my son. I was on the fence about getting a birth photographer, but she is worth every penny. Seeing myself in pictures of my labor and birth is so empowering and I am so grateful I have them. Sarah was calm and collected the entire time, going with the flow and offering support when I needed it. I truly enjoyed her presence and knowing that she was part of my birth team brought me comfort in both the days before labor and during birth. My husband was impressed at how unobstrusive she was in the whole process. She stayed out of the way of my midwives and was still able to capture great candid shots of everyone. If you're looking for a photographer to help you step into your birthing power AND capture stunning photos that you'll treasure forever, Sarah is your girl!
