Why Birth Photography?
The day a new baby comes into your world is one of the most significant days of your life! I take photographs of unbelievably precious and momentous memories for people; the laughter, the pain, the joy, the tears and the moments that make you feel so deeply you'll remember them the rest of your life.
Documenting a your child's birth story will help you remember that day with more clarity. The way your partner supported you throughout the entire labor process or whispered encouraging words into your ears. The way that pain really felt, and how much joy you felt when you finally got to hold your baby for the first time. When you hire me to be your birth photographer, I will be able to capture those memories for you. I will become a part of your birth team, and will be there for you from the time you hire me until baby is born.

How it works
- Contact me! I'll send you over a questionnaire to fill out and we’ll meet for an in-person consultation where we’ll have an opportunity to get to know one another and you can ask me any questions and share with me any expectations, hopes or fears about my photography or your birth.
- Have a Baby! Leading up to your guess date I’ll be on call for you starting at 38 weeks until your beautiful baby is born, and when I get that phone call or text from you I will be out the door and headed to the hospital to capture those precious memories of your baby entering the world!
- Relive your Memories. Each image will be hand-edited with care, and about three weeks later when they are all ready, I’ll be at your door with some movie treats in hand and we’ll watch and remember your new babies birth story together.
I am in awe every time I get to witness the moment each family sees their new baby for the first time. To see them take their first breaths, cry their first cry, and settle in sweetly on their mother's chest. You can never get those moments back.
What Clients are Saying
"Having a birth photographer is a hands-down absolute MUST but choosing Amber was the best decision ever!! From the very beginning of our first conversation she was so sweet and so professional and I felt like I was talking to an old friend. Honestly, at first I was a bit apprehensive about having my birth documented seeing what a truly intimate and personal experience it is. So I decided to have Amber come to the house where we were going to have our water home birth so we could meet. As soon as I met her I was 100% confident that she would be an amazing addition to our birth team!! I think we were equally excited to work together. The birth itself was absolutely amazing having her there. She did a good job in advance making sure she knew what I wanted captured and whether I wanted it videotaped or photographed. It was the perfect working relationship. Love her to pieces!!! We are over the moon excited with each and every picture and even more proud of our birth video. It's been such a pleasure being able to share it with so many friends and family… I don't think one person has watched the video without telling us it brought them to tears. Amber did an exceptional job of truly capturing the loving and supportive experience of welcoming our amazing son Finn into the world. We are so grateful to have this documentation of the best experience of my life!!! Mahalos"
"Amber, having you there during Oliver's birth was such a gift in itself. Thank you for all of your support and encouragement! Not to mention the sweetest photos to hold on to and pass down to Oliver! Thank you so much! I can't tell you how many people have shared with me how touching the video was to them. You did such a fantastic job capturing the moment and the emotions through the labor process. To anyone reading this, having Amber with me during the labor process was so wonderful! She was very encouraging and sweet, offering the perfect amount of presence through the day. The pictures and video captured truly show the emotions experienced and are greatly treasured!" —Staci V.
