There are few things more powerful than a woman giving birth.  The raw beauty of labor.  The look between partners and they face this challenge together.  The moment you hear your baby cry.  The first time you see your child.  As a documentary photographer, I blend into the background and you are able to relax and concentrate on one of the most amazing moments in your life!  I quietly record the natural moments before, during, and after your newest family member arrives.  I capture the birth of your child as it truly is, in its most organic form, with the discretion of an artist.  Everyone will tell you that after you give birth, you forget going through labor, that most of that day is just a blur.  Do not lose these amazing memories!

The Photographers talent.
