I have been granted lots of "firsts" in this career and like with anything they tend to grow and evolve. Sometimes even compete (in a fun, non-aggressive way) with one another in my memory. I have experienced missing a birth because a Mama wound up delivering in an amb...

I am finding that I have entered the newest sweet spot in my time spent involved in this industry. Some of my clients from 2-3 years ago are expecting their second babies, and I am extremely fortunate enough to call them REPEAT clients. 

I was super excited to hear from...

It was back in September that I met with Alyssa, Steve, and their young daughter Rowan in their home in Hawthorne to discuss all the details of what would be my first home birth. We discussed at length what her hopes were and how she planned on going about every step o...

It's always great to reconnect with people from your past. It's even better when your career, that doesn't feel like a career, provides that connection. One of the major positives of being a part of any social media outlet is the ability to keep tabs on with those whom...

This should be the easiest blog post ever, yet my brain is all over the place.

Every family that has allowed me into their lives, holds a permanent place in my heart. Every birth is so completely unique and exhilarating in its own way. I don't know how my heart could ev...

This is a first for me, not only were these clients practically my neighbors, but this Mama is also a local photographer! Mikey Furman (Beyda), of mikeybeydaphotography.com, reached out to me back in March about attending her birth, and it would be a total lie if...

This weekend has been one of my busiest. As I sit here tonight, editing, publishing, and editing some more, awake purely by the magic that is coffee, I feel amazing.

June has been kind enough to award me opportunities to work with new clients and old friends....
