I help parents remember their birth story, long after the details are blurry.

Celebrate how hard you worked in labor, the reaction when you see your baby for the first time, and their teeny tiny toes with Portland birth photography.

All people should have a voice in their birth experience.

As your birth doula, I'll advocate for you so that you achieve the birth you want, and feel like the powerful birthing badass you are.

you're here!

yay,

(she/her)

My first baby was born at a birth center, and my second baby was born at home with midwives.

When I say I understand what kind of birth you want, you should know that I really get it.

We live on a small farm where we raise chickens, goats, and grow our own food. I homeschool and cloth diapered both kids!

Now I'm an award winning Portland birth photographer... But how did I get here? Keep reading -

I'm Natalie

nice to meet you!

My dream home water birth.

I felt so f*cking VICTORIOUS.

But all the pictures I have blurry.

Here it is

Am I grateful to have this photo?
Yes, of course!

I'll never be able to thank my mom enough for capturing this for me.

Don't we deserve
better than this?

This is how my love for birth photography started.

My phone rings. It's 2AM, and I'm asleep. I tear back the covers, fly out of bed and head to your birth.

now

getting up at 2am is my favorite thing in the entire world.

I want to be woken up, because

I care about your birth.

"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!"
