Births of 2013 Re-cap | Las Vegas Birth Photographer


Birth never ceases to amaze me. Each birth is different and incredible. I have been blessed to be a part of so many birth experiences over the past 5 years and I have learned from and appreciate each one. I can’t wait to see what 2014 brings! Spring is shaping up to be quite a busy birthing season, so if you are due in the next few months and have been thinking about birth photography, contact me ASAP as my schedule is filling up!

Ellie’s birth was quite quick – 90 minutes!! I made it to her house a mere 15 minutes before the baby was born.

8:29pm Labor is quite intense for Ellie. Quick labors often are.
