Birth and Beauty
When you sit with yourself, quiet and undisturbed, and pick up a photograph of someone you love, running your fingers over the edges of that image, it becomes more than what it physically is; a piece of paper. When you sit with your heart and remember the love, of everything that picture means to you, nothing else in the world is more valuable. Perhaps it is the day your child was born, a timeless image of you and your children, your parent or even yourself long ago, imagery is what we have to guide our memories of this precious and fragile life.
Birth is an art that a woman’s body miraculously makes. If you have been married, you likely hired the best wedding photographer you could. Having a child is both inconceivably emotional, exhilarating and one of the most momentous days of your life as well. A day like that deserves the same recognition. Birth photography is art.
I am a San Luis Obispo birth photographer. Whether you are having a home birth, hospital birth, birth center birth, cesarean birth, water birth or doing an adoption or surrogate story, my promise to you is to photograph authentically with dignity, respect and love.
Beauty is not in the face; beauty is a light in the heart – Kahlil Gibran
This is what I strive to capture in beauty portraits; the light from within. Beauty portraits come wrapped in a family portrait, a child’s portrait or a contemporary portrait that celebrates you and where you are right now in your life.
I currently reside in Cambria on the beautiful Central Coast and it is here that I have my studio for beauty portraits. I am available for birth photography in any of the Central Coast birth centers from Paso Robles, San Luis Obispo, Arroyo Grande to Santa Maria. Birth Centers outside this area can be arranged.
