In my 30 years on this earth, I have learned that life can be hard. Pregnancy is tough. The unknowns of birth are a little scary. Being a new mom can feel so isolating. But all of these things are simultaneously some of the most beautiful things we can experience. And community + support is EVERYTHING.
I've held many different roles throughout my adult life from fitness professional, to portrait photographer, to podcaster, to birth doula. Through it all, I've realized that I simply love helping people (a true ennegram 2). My heart is full when I can capture your joy, create connection, make you feel less alone, or celebrate your story.
