I am a Certified Doula through the Wise Woman Way of Birth Doula Training (2014). There were many options for Doula training but I felt this course was the best fit for me as it focused more on the traditional support and knowledge for birthing families.
I mentored under the incredibly talented Morag Hastings from Apple Blossom Families for Birth Photography.
I completed a 3 hour Acupressure for Labour with Dr. Erin Flynn (Dr. of Traditional Chinese Medicine) at Yinstill Reproductive Wellness.
I have a CPR-C certification (adult, child, infant, AED/defibrillator).
I am a Mother of Two, Birth Doula and Photographer located just outside of Vancouver, B.C., Canada.
Becoming a Mother was one of the most incredible experiences of my life. I've long had a passion for pregnancy, birth and all it's glory and after my birth and experiences with my own Doula and Midwives, it was clear to me that this was where my heart felt at home.
Shortly after completing my Doula training in 2014, I became pregnant with my second child. Putting into practice all of the wisdom and knowledge bestowed upon me during that transformative course really helped me further my intimate understanding of preparing for and giving birth. My first child was born in the hospital and my second was born at home. Both experiences were beautiful and unique in their own right and have helped shape the Doula that I am today.
Photography has long been a passion of mine. I bought my first 'big camera' when I lived in Australia nearly 10 years ago and fell in love with the world through my lens. I capture emotion in moments and in my heart of hearts, I am a Photo Journalist. This is why Birth Photography felt so right and natural for me. It was through my mentorship with the incredibly talented and successful photographer Morag Hastings, from Apple Blossom Families, that I was able further my knowledge and expertise.
As my Photography career unfolds, so does my love for capturing life outside of Birth. I am always evolving and growing as an artist. At the core of my work is emotion and I adore capturing all of it.
