Caboose | My Own Personal Birth Story

You know one of the greatest things about being a photographer? You can train your husband to use your camera and then capture life’s moments that you just can’t capture yourself. I mean I’m a pretty great multi-tasker but birthing a baby and taking the pictures at the same time is out of even my expertise. So my husband mans the camera which really is a great task for him since all of that baby birthing stuff is not his particular cup of tea. And then we’re both happy. But I can promise as your Utah Birth Photographer that I will not bring my husband to capture your birth story. We’ll leave that to the professionals. You know what I’m saying? But really, he did a wonderful job. He got the one picture that I really just couldn’t get myself and that’s all I could have asked for. After he left to tend to our other two kids I was able to let me creative side out and really let loose on Baby Max. I mean honestly, when the nurse walked in and I was standing on my bed with my massive camera and sweet baby Max laying below, they probably noted my chart then and there that I was a bit on the crazy side. And you know what? They’re probably right.

Newborn babies are the absolute bestest. I love how I have pictures to forever remember that I literally COULD. NOT. keep my hands off my sweet newborn boy. I just needed to feel his soft skin, his tiny little heart beating against my own. Max made his debut to the world after just a minute and twenty seconds of pushing and if I could go back and change anything I would have sucked more at pushing so it could have lasted longer. My sweet perfect Baby Max, welcome to the world.

Kind of an overshare but you just can’t sum up a birth story with a few pictures, right? Contact me so that you can forever remember how you just couldn’t stop touching your newborn baby.

    Baby G | Utah Birth Photographer

    I love labor & delivery. Is there really anything more beautiful than a precious baby straight from Heaven? Being a Utah Birth Photographer is honestly one of my greatest blessings. I have delivered 3 of my own beautiful babies. One through an emergency cesarean (stubborn girl was breech), one through a successful V-Back where I pushed for 40 minutes, and my last as another successful V-Back where I pushed for 3 minutes and he was out. Because of my own birth experiences I feel like I’m able to offer something that maybe all birth photographers aren’t able to offer. I understand what it feels like to go from thinking it’s time to push, to being told it’s time to get ready for a C-Section. I know how quickly babies can come, and how they can slow down and change their minds about coming into this world. I am on call for you as your Utah birth photographer. I will come as soon as you’re dilated to a 6 and I will stay for an hour after the birth to capture all those special hospital moments. Baby G was pretty eager. My client contacted me when she was on her way to a 6. I pulled into the parking lot when she was a 6 and was taking some pictures outside when she text and said you better get up here. She pushed once. ONE TIME!!! I haven’t seen anything like it. After 3 daughters this son was quite anticipated. And isn’t he just the sweetest?Utah Birth Photography at Riverton Hospital beautiful spring day with trees in bloomRiverton Birth Photography all the details at the hospital.

    Let me take away the stress of worrying whether your spouse is getting the pictures you want while still giving you the support you need. It’s never too early to book your birth photography and remember, I’m on call 24/7 around your due date and travel to all of Salt Lake and Utah Valley Hospitals to document this special time for you.
