Our babies grow like wildflowers in the first year, and sometimes it can feel like a blur between the busyness of mom life and #mombrain, but I am here to capsulate every detail for you so that you never forget how tiny they once were!
As a first time mom, my biggest fear was the unknown pain of labor and delivery. It is an incredible blessing to have someone present who knows exactly what to do and how to help. Hailey was that blessing for me. Her presence during my labor was such a comfort and help to me and my support people, husband and mom. She stepped in and coached them on how to apply counter pressure while coaching me on the best ways to relax and work with the pain, reminding me each contraction was bringing me closer and closer to my daughter. She helped me navigate every contraction, while capturing the most beautiful moments of my labor. I am so grateful to her and for her empathetic approach as a birth photographer and birth doula. She is a truly gifted, caring and wonderful person who I feel so blessed to have crossed paths.
Hailey was so patient and friendly while doing my Fresh 48 photos of my Son. As someone who is extremely socially awkward and the thought of having someone photograph such a vulnerable time was really anxiety inducing to me, but she has such a friendly demeanor it felt like chatting with an old friend and the photos came out absolutely breathtaking.
Hailey captured our newborn photos perfectly and was an absolute joy to work with! She was so patient during the session with both our newborn and toddler. The final photos turned out so better than I could have dreamt!
