My Photography Passion
Birth Photography & Videography
In 2011, as I was shadowing another Doula, a client asked me to "snap" some photos while she was laboring. I gladly did and instantly fell in love with my view. I was truly capturing her labor - providing moments she would likely not recall. It was amazing to be able to support her in that way!
It unlocked a passion within me. I immediately told my husband I wanted a camera and he bought me one. In April 2016, I attended Birth Unscripted Photography's Birth Workshop which only solidified my skills and confidence level. I look forward to CAPTURING your birth!
As your Doula I know you and have an eye and an ear for birth. I am fully capable of supporting you while capturing the hip squeezes, hand holdings and tiny toes.
This package includes:
Doula & Photography
Knowing and understanding birth, I work around labor and the birth team to capture the back rubs, first glances and first kisses.
As your Certified Postpartum Doula, I will come to your home in the immediate days following your birth and assist you and your family. In the early days and weeks, your priorities should be to rest and feed your baby! During my 4, 6 or 8 hour visit, my number one priority will be to help you and your spouse REST while taking care of the rest! Let me help you during this time!
Some of the things I will do while at your home:
My services are available for $30/hr. (daytime; 4 hour minimum, $35/hr. 8 hour minimum)

Once you hire Christy:
“I honestly forgot you were taking photos during the labor part. I love the pictures you took and how they add to our memory of those moments and I never felt for one second that you weren't supporting me as my doula the whole time.So, I would definitely tell potential clients to absolutely go for it! Plus we have so many high quality professional images from her first hours of life and that is just so precious!” ~Rachel - a Doula & Birth Photography client
In addition to capturing still images of your labor and birth, I will weave in video clips. These tiny moments, whispers and announcements of weight will be set in motion to music. A beautiful memory of your baby's birth!
