Earlier this year I got an inquiry from Kari to document their birth story. I had already told myself I wasn’t going to take on any clients in August but I felt a calling to go meet her and her family and I am so glad I did. We connected quickly chatting about all things pregnancy, birth, and new baby and I was instantly excited to change my plans a bit so I could work with her and Curt as their Birth Photographer as they welcomed their first baby together. A couple of weeks before Kari’s due da [...]

  I was so excited to meet with Lauren when she was just 6 weeks pregnant with her first baby. Lauren and I have crossed paths many times in the local birth community. She works at the Winnipeg Birth Centre and she is also a Midwifery student here in Winnipeg.

    "A comfort zone is a beautiful place, but nothing ever grows there"  Lifestyle Studio I have not blogged in a really long time. It feels great to sit down and write again. Today is a very different blog post and I am just going to get right to it before I find a reason to not write it. When I first launched my Photography & Doula business it was pretty scary to put myself and my gifts out there. I know this fear held me back for far too long from following my dreams. I always f [...]
