Even the moments you missed - like the way your partner looks at you when you’re not watching.

You close your eyes, remembering how intense labor was, and how strong you feel now that you’re on the other side.

Don’t you deserve to have this day remembered forever?

Both my births were with midwives. One at a birth center, and one at home. When I say I understand what kind of birth you want, you should know that    I really get it.

Welcome friend!
I'm Natalie

We live on a small farm where we raise chickens, goats, and grow our own food. I love babywearing, I cloth diapered both kids, and we homeschool. Now I'm an award winning Portland birth photographer...

But how did I get here? 

Here's my story.

Portland Birth Photography

When you choose to have me at your birth, you’re getting more than just a birth photographer. For me, birth work is an all-consuming passion and my greatest source of joy. I’ve always known that what I do should have a deeper purpose, feel sacred, and connected to a higher pursuit. I’m driven by this fire that’s alive inside of me for birth photography; this is something I was born to do.

Birth photography is right for you if...

You want to remember the day your baby was born


It’s a bigger deal than your wedding day


You can’t get this experience back


You want your partner to be in the moment (not watching through a camera)


You’ll be able to relax knowing that the photos are taken care of


You know you’ll regret it if you don’t

"I never expected to cherish birth photos so much but I am so amazed with Natalie's work! There was so much love, pain and determination during my labor and she captured every emotion that came up. You will not be disappointed."
- Rachel, Portland OR

Portland Birth Videography

While photos bring a certain memory to life, and you can look at them in an album or a frame, seeing the movement and hearing the sounds of labor has a much more emotional quality to it. When I create birth films, I select music that’s evocative, emotional, and crescendos with the moment of birth. I find that seeing your baby being born on video is highly emotional, and hearing their first cries, the words you first spoke them, never fails to bring tears to the surface.

Common questions:

Can you do video and photo both?

     Yes! I'm able to switch seamlessly
     between photo and video so you
     can have both.


Do I have to choose between photo or video at the moment of birth?

    You can choose either one, but I
    recommend video for the moment of
    birth. I can pull still images from your
    footage!

"If you’re looking for someone who will capture all those magical moments on video, then I highly recommend Natalie. She is worth every dime."

"Natalie photographed the birth of my second son, and man do I wish that I would have found her for the birth of my first. She was exactly what I needed. Not only did she do such an amazing job, but her presence during the whole thing added a sense of peace to the chaos of such a quick labor. I will never have another baby without Natalie there to capture it!"

Erin, Portland OR

"It can be such a stressful, vulnerable time to imagine having someone over to photograph you, but Natalie was incredibly warm and has such a gentle way of being present, that she really put me at ease and it all felt very natural. The photos are beautiful and true to life, exactly what I wanted."

Amanda, Portland or

"It was amazing to have Natalie's support, especially when I started to doubt myself.  I wanted to remember it all.  All of the little details. The whole journey. My need was more than fulfilled. I'm so grateful to have these memories to look back on!"
