Baby Aurora | Birth Story Utah

This is baby Aurora's birth story.  She's such a beautiful baby with amazing parents, and I was so grateful to be a small part of welcoming her to the world!  I love documenting births because it's such a special intimate time, and I love recording that for families to be able to remember such a special day! I love documenting all the details big and small of their birth day, and being able to make a crazy day a little less stressful for the family so they can focus on bonding with their baby while knowing that they will have beautiful photos to look back on.   Baby Aurora's...

Baby Nora | American Fork Birth Story

  Birth stories are so special!  I loved capturing this American Fork birth story.  It's such a special moment to document.  Meeting your baby for the first time is such a special moment.  I love to document the parents' reaction to meeting their baby, and their baby's tiny fingers and toes.  They grow and change so fast, you'll want to be able to look back on the photos and remember that special day!   Baby Nora's story is such a sweet one!  She is the Packers' third baby (and first girl).  Her parents have had her name picked out for years which I think is so...

Baby Shiloh | Birth Story

  Baby Shiloh has a unique birth story!  I met with his mom on a Tuesday for lunch at Kneaders.  We chatted about when her due date was (5 weeks away), how her husband works in San Fransisco, and how excited she was for the baby (either Summer for a girl, or Shiloh for a boy).  Imagine my surprise when she called that night around 2am saying she was in labor!   Here's the video of his birth!  If you want to hear more about the story, keep reading!     I hurried and gathered my birth camera bag and made sure my batteries were charged and I had...

What’s it like to have a birth photographer?

  What is it like to have a birth photographer?  You may have some questions about the whole process.  Is it weird since you hardly know the person?  What if you're not sure about having another person in the room?  I know women have a lot of concerns when hiring a birth photographer, and I want to address some of those in this article.   First of all, it's a good idea to chat with your birth photographer leading up to your birth to get to know them a little bit.  About half of my clients choose to meet in person ahead of time.  That's great for me, because I like...

James | American Fork Birth Photos

Meet the Coburns.  They welcomed James into their family this month!  I was lucky enough to be able to take their American Fork Birth Photos.  I consider myself very privileged to be invited into a birth space, and this was no exception.   Amy was induced because of high blood pressure and about 36 hours later that they welcomed their sweet, tiny, baby boy!   Both grandmas and 2 aunts were also there when he was born which was so special! Both grandpas were standing by in the waiting room.  It's always fun when all the extended family is so excited for the arrival of the new...
