Meet Katie, your
Birth Profesional

Katie Jackson

Certified Birth Photographer, Doula and Educator

Serving families in the Triangle and Surrounding Areas

This day will change. your. life. I want you to soak it all in without extra stress, like fumbling with your camera app or remembering everything from birth class.


I'm here to comfort you, care for you and take care of all the details.

I am a highly trained and experienced SPECIALIST. I bring the support of an advanced doula as well as a photographer with birth-focused education. I want you to have beautiful memories of this irreplaceable time and feel like you hired someone who has a deep understanding and respect for the birth process.

Giving birth is such a whirlwind, it leaves us with foggy memories. My perspective is unique. I see the  excitement, determination, exhaustion, trust, love and joy. It takes my breath away.

I want you to see what I see. From my lens.

Not Just for Moms

"Katie has such a peaceful demeanor. It's exactly what you need when you are having a baby. She has a passion for how strong women are and helps you to feel that in yourself. She really helps you be prepared mentally, physically and emotionally"


– Rachel

"I could not have experienced an enjoyable birth without Katie. She was hands on when we needed, knowledgeable, and patient. Around 22 hours, I remember pleading "I can't do this!" and she said, “You’re exactly where you need to be." It's hard to put into words the confidence she instilled in my husband in me. Working with Katie is something we'll never forget—she is truly a gift."


– Bridget

"Katie is calm, caring, and supportive. She made my unmedicated hospital birth more than I ever could expect. She taught me the best ways to cope with the 22-hour labor I went through with my first child. I would recommend her 10 times out of 10!"
