I want you to see what I see.

Giving birth is such a whirlwind and leaves us with foggy memories of this once-in-a-lifetime experience. My perspective is unique. I see the love, excitement, determination, beauty, focus, exhaustion, trust, relief, and joy. 

It takes my breath away. You deserve to remember it all.

Certified Doula, Birth Photographer and Educator

Serving families in the Triangle and Surrounding Areas

This. day. matters. I want you to soak it in without extra stress, like fumbling with your phone or remembering everything from birth class.

 

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

As both a certified birth photographer, AND doula, I offer you a valuable set of skills. I bring the support of an advanced doula as well as a photographer with birth-focused education. I want you to have beautiful memories and know that you hired someone who has a deep understanding and respect for the birth process.

My business is highly specialised. If you want personal support from an expert, I'm the professional for you. I have served dozens of families and seen the range of experiences. I am prepared to help you meet your birth goals and I have advanced training in birth mechanics and physiology.

"I could not have experienced an enjoyable birth without Katie. She was hands on, 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 both my husband and me. Working with Katie is something we'll never forget—she is truly a gift."

"Hiring Katie as our birth photographer was one of the best decisions we made during pregnancy!! The photos capture the beauty and intensity and we will treasure them forever. She captured the small, intimate moments and big events with equal thoughtfulness and skill. The photos provide another perspective of the events and allow me to see moments that I missed, remember the details of the day, and just wonder at the amazingness of it all. Importantly, Katie was professional, kind, and all around lovely to work with during pregnancy, birth, and postpartum." 

-Morgan

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