These are stories that should never be forgotten.
We have been documenting our birth stories since the beginning of humankind. Through the stories we pass down to our children, through the words we transcribe, and through the depictions in our music and artwork.
Don't let those breathtaking moments from your own baby's birth become just a blurry memory. You deserve to have them beautifully documented to relive over and over. When your babies are grown and have moved on to create their own stories, the photographs from the day you brought them into the world will be priceless heirlooms to yourself and the future generations of your family.
The look of a warrior as she roars through another contraction. The look of a goddess as she brings her baby down and out into the world. The look of pure, unconditional love as her eyes meet the face of the life she has brought forth. The look of a new father whose heart is overwhelmingly full from the magic he just witnessed.
Real moments. Real emotion. Real love.
I am a professionally certified birth photographer with training specifically geared towards birth. Although I do not plan on offering doula services, I am also currently working on completing a doula certification program so that I can better serve my clients.
I list these accomplishments and goals to show you just how seriously I take this work and the respect I have for the birth space. I don't believe it is something that any photographer can jump into without some serious preparation. It is unlike any other type of photography, and a once-in-a-lifetime event. There aren't any do-overs, and it can be overwhelming and unpredictable. Whether you choose to hire me to photograph your birth, or someone else, I hope these words stay with you throughout your search. It is so very important you trust the people you bring into your birth space!

"Initially, we were a little hesitant to commit to a birth photographer... we’re so glad we did! With the chaos of the first few months of our baby’s life, our memories of her birth day are already a blur. Now, we have a permanent capture of those cherished moments. I was concerned my husband and I would be distracted by our photos being taken during the birthing process. But Kaylene was very mindful of our space and responsive when needed. It was so pleasant to have a photographer that is also a mom! It was clear that she understands the gravity of being present during the intimate birth process."

"Kaylene just took Fresh 48 pictures for our new baby girl. We met a few weeks prior to delivery. She went over all of the details & answered my questions. She was flexible and supportive when we found out my due date was going to be earlier than expected. When picture day arrived, she came prepared. We didn’t have to worry about anything as she captured beautiful shots of our special event. These pictures are memories that we will cherish forever."
