My name is Madisen but you can call me Maddy.
I'm honored that you're even considering me for your birth story! I mean, this is the start of one of your greatest adventures and it's so important that you have someone there to capture the little details and the big emotions.
Maybe you're wondering why in the world you'd want a photographer at such an intimate moment (I'm looking at you, dads). These are the life-defining moments for your little family! Birth is a beautiful, empowering, transformative blur and this time goes by so quickly. As women, we don't get to see or focus on what is going on around us when we bring our babies into the world.
Memories can fade so quickly and I want to give you a gallery that will transport you back to those moments and you will cherish rest of your life.
I want to capture you as your grow your baby and make sure you know how beautiful you are. I want to give you images of your baby's wrinkly little body and tiny features because once you blink, they’re almost grown and you don't want to forget how tiny they once were.
I'm there for the raw moments. I won't pressure you to pose or smile for the camera or have heaps of makeup on to look picture-perfect. I'm there for the ugly cries when they put that squishy bundle on your chest for the first time. I'm there for your husband's first time doing skin-to-skin. I'm there for the powerful moments as you ride the waves of your contractions. I'm there for when you feel like giving up and learn you're more powerful than you ever could have imagined.
That's part of what makes birth stories so exciting (and important!) because your story isn't going to be like anyone else's!
If this is the experience you've been searching for, I think that we will get along just fine.
