Documenting the emotional first moments of your child's life.

With Birth Story coverage, I will unobtrusively photograph your unique birthing experience from active labor all the way up through the incredible special firsts of your newborn's life: first cry, first time in his/her loving parents’ arms, and so forth. Prior to your birth, we will meet in person (so we are not strangers on your delivery day), and have an in-depth discussion about your photography needs/desires as well as your comfort level with the photographs taken. I fully respect your privacy and needs as a laboring woman, and aim to provide you with a comfortable experience alongside images you are going to look back on for years to come with undeniable joy.

Dawn captured the moments beautifully – the quiet moments, the painful moments, my husband caring for me, and the little details to truly provide a birth story... [these] photos provide with us with precious memories that I will cherish forever.
