Prepare for the physical and emotional demands of birth, while gaining a good understanding of the whole process.

Let me capture your love story, to look back on, 20 years down the road.

Let me creatively tell the story of your brand or the birth of a baby.

1. I've been married for over 12 years

(I know I look young, but I'm 33)!

2. I have 4 kids between the ages of 5-12 years old.

3. I am a professionally trained seamstress/costume maker.

4. I homeschooled my kids for 2.5 years and absolutely loved it!

5. I started and sold a clothing business called Gracefully Birthed.

6. I have been a professional doula for 6 years.

7. I have been offering professional birth photography for 3 years.

8. I started doing videography over 2 years ago, and I'm having a blast with that genre of storytelling.

9. I love Jesus, am far from perfect, and always try to own up to and learn from my mistakes.

10. I'm an introvert, but love being around others.

11. I'm naturally more artistic than I am athletic...but wish I was more athletic.

12. I train on Lyra (aerial hoop), and do partner acrobatics with my husband, at our gym.

13. I used to volunteer at the Central Alberta Pregnancy Care Center and have a huge heart for what they do and offer.
