Hi! I'm Valerie. Doula. Photographer. Wife. Mama. Tiramisu and Tea Lover.
It never escapes me the incredible honor of being invited into a family's birth space. Birth is one of the most beautiful and sacred moments in life, and it deserves to be captured just like any other big moment! I am also in love with family photography, lifestyle photography and really any chance that I'm invited to be with a person where I can bring my camera. I see differently when I look through my lens. The world is beautiful, and it deserves to be immortalized. My favorite photos are the ones where someone wasn't posing. Where life happened organically. I have been trained in birth photography and videography by Monet Nicole and Jennifer Mason of Birth Becomes Her.
I am a CAPPA certified labor doula. To be able to help a mama during her birth, to feel better about her birth, to feel loved, supported, heard, understood. I am in love with all things birth, all things mama and all things family. I love to help parents understand their choices regarding their birth, and to bring a calming, caring presence to the birth space. It's truly and honor I'll never get over. A bond is created with a family when you attend their birth that is unique and beautiful. I have given birth to my own 3 daughters, and each birth was one of the most empowering moments of my life.
