Hi there! Welcome to the blog. You will find beautiful images from all different kinds of sessions as well as more personal stories about me!


We found out we were pregnant at the very start of the new year #2020 and from the beginning we planned a homebirth. Todd (my husband) was skeptical but after our first experience at a birth center, he was much more on board the second time around to agree to my homebirth wishes.

Newborn Home Birth Session

Sometimes its hard to fall asleep when you KNOW you will be needing to parent in the middle of the night. Here is the fruit of that insomnia I have. I’ve really felt a calling to share this little story with you all, who knows who needs to hear it? Hopefully just one of you does and that would make this level of vulnerability all worth it.

Maternity Leave

About 6 years ago, I became gluten free out of desperation to find out what was causing my debilitating sinus infections. Four weeks into this new lifestyle, not only were my sinus problems seemingly healed, but I saw a multitude of positive repercussions from cutting gluten out of my diet. If you have a similar story, then these empanadas will rock your world! OR maybe you are a breastfeeding mom who is experiencing some allergies with your little one and needing to cut out gluten and dairy for just this season! This recipe will make food exciting again!

Today’s (and the past few months) topic is; bottles. Lately, I have worked with a lot of families that have moms heading back to work and inconveniently, their baby will not take a bottle.

To Bottle or Not to Bottle, That is the Question!

Sep 2, 2016

I have been asked a lot why I choose to become a doula. It is a very good question! Which is why I decided to share my heart behind this decision and why I feel called into this work. 🙂

It all started 18 years ago. My third sibling was born, forever giving me a buddy and sense of responsibility. Up until this point, we usually experienced what most children-of-three encounters at least once in their childhood; someone was always “left out.” But then there were four. My little brother coming into the world blessed my entire family beyond measure. Little did I know this gift would also plant a seed that would forever grow into a vocation of a lifetime.
