Katy home birth story

I have photographed many births in the Katy and Houston area, and of all of them I am most honored when people invite me into their homes to document this momentous occasion. It’s such a private place and to be welcomed in is a really big deal, one that I don’t take lightly. I had...

Everyone was smiling from ear to ear when their tiny...

Today is Mother’s Day. That is me in the above photo, moments after bringing my daughter up out of the water and into the world. And if you read the headline only and thought that this was just another post on one of those mom blog sites about skipping the flowers, tacky stuffed animals, and...

Why hire a birth photographer?

This is a photo of me delivering my daughter in the water last March. Yes. ME. Delivering my own child. Let that sink in for just a second. Now, the photo is a little blurry, but whatever. That isn’t the point. The point is that single second in time, that moment when life came into...
