Leah's Birth Story - Seattle Birth Photographer

I have been away from this blog for far too long. Raising two girls and moving across the country can do that to a person. I am thrilled to be making the transition to Seattle and ready to start photographing in our new hometown, so this blog will be all abuzz in the coming weeks as I show you lots of photo shoots that have yet to be shared.

If you know someone in the Seattle area who is interested in birth photography, please do send them my way. The first three births I book here receive half off! Enough with the talk, though, let's get to the pictures.

Every baby is miraculous, but there is something extra special about welcoming a little one whose family has been waiting a long time to meet her. Little Leah wasted no time coming into the world once we reached the birthing center, and I'm so glad to have been there to greet her. What a lovely birth and beautiful baby girl.
I had the unique pleasure of returning home with baby Leah and her parents to see her big reveal to the other siblings. These kids were so cute - and beyond excited to meet their youngest sister.
It's amazing to see a tiny one enter the world, who hours before was not in the world and then to witness her seamlessly become part of her larger family. Experiencing such miracles surrounding birth makes me extremely grateful to have this calling in life. Thank you, to all the families who let me be a part of this sacred experience with you.

Central New York Winter

The winter in central New York: It's cold. And forever long. And hopefully finally over.

Now that the world is thawing out I'm feeling an itch to get out there and photograph it. Let this serve as my commitment to photograph more and to share more here on this blog. Happy springtime, everyone.

Ro Family

As a photographer, nothing feels better than working with returning clients. You might remember this family from little Lucy's newborn shoot last year. My how she has grown! Working with the Ro family again this year was such a pleasure. I love capturing their authentic interactions and having the opportunity to really document the love and energy of this growing family. This type of relaxed, natural family portraiture is my favorite storytelling style.

Just Family - Ithaca Family Photography

It was such a pleasure to photograph the Just family. On a crisp fall day, with gorgeous foliage and a couple of redheads to boot, it was the perfect opportunity for my first photo shoot on Cornell campus. My family made the move up to Ithaca, NY this summer and the Justs are the first of what I hope will be many new clients in the uptstate area. Look out Ithaca, there's a new family photographer in town!

I'm still doing work in NYC on occasion - including my next trip on the weekend of January 19th - so shoot me a line if you'd like to book a session in the city.
