I am a Doula

I am a trained doula through Birth Arts International, a program with the most in-depth and comprehensive education available to certified doulas. BAI is considered the premier holistic doula training organization. My career as a birth photographer sparked a deep interest and energy within me to become more intricately involved with helping others bring their babies into the world. As I have pursued a role as a birth doula, I have been fulfilled in new and meaningful ways, experiencing a deep sense of joy.

I am a Photographer

During my 8 years as a wedding photographer, I believed I was photographing the "best day ever" for all my clients. After I delivered my first son, I realized the days following the wedding get even better and hearts grow even bigger. I want to capture more than just the covenantal beginning of a family. The entire process is sacred, unique, and deserving of documentation.  

For Every Stage of Your Family Journey

Maternity

Whether buying baby gadgets or completing to-do lists, it can be difficult to set aside time to actually prepare for Baby's arrival. Let's work together to holistically support your many needs during pregnancy by exploring nutritional changes, practicing mindfulness, creating a birth plan, and documenting your growing family.

Birth

Birth is arguably the most raw and beautiful experience a person has in their lifetime. It is primal. It is empowering.  It is binding.  Strength and resilience once buried deep within emerges to deliver new life.

Parenthood

Whoever said, "the days are long, but the years are short" should receive some kind of award for being so spot on.  You will never regret documenting these everyday, but divine, moments as your family grows.

What Moms Are Saying

“Where do I even start?! Allie was hands down the best possible person we could have hired to document our transition into a family of five. As a doula and mother of two boys herself, her presence was patient and understanding in our chaos. Leading up to my delivery, she was a text away as a source of comfort and advice when I went over a week overdue. When taking our pictures, she didn’t miss a beat and gracefully entertained both of my toddlers when I had to pause to nurse my newborn. We all had so much fun, and none of the experience was lost on quality. She beautifully and skillfully captured the personality of our family, right down to each child’s (and the dog’s!) unique quirks. If you like amazing pictures and quality pregnancy support, then you’re most definitely in the right place.”

What Moms Are Saying

"The day our daughter was born, Allie exceeded our expectations in every way. She was so accommodating, kind, professional, and went above and beyond to do little things to make sure that each of us were taken care of. Allie felt more like a family member or friend than a photographer while there. My husband and I both felt 100% comfortable knowing that she would be in the delivery room with us. Allie devoted nearly her entire day to capture the most beautiful photos of such an intimate experience. She even stayed after our daughter was born to allow us time to bond with our daughter and still capture additional special moments. It has been so meaningful to relive the day our daughter was born through these photos, and Allie captured the emotion and excitement of that day so beautifully. I am SO happy we decided on birth photography. We will cherish these photos forever, and we will absolutely continue to work with Allie as our family continues to grow :)"

What Moms Are Saying

I could not imagine my birth story without Allie playing a part in it. I was pretty fearful about labor and delivery and Allie was there for me from weeks before my due date with kindness and encouragement. When we were at the hospital, she was there with humor when I needed it, something I will never forget, and a calm and peaceful demeanor when things were tough. Looking back at the pictures I am in awe at her ability to freeze the most precious moments of my life in time. She is so talented and her work is truly magical. I am so thankful for Allie both personally and professionally. She will forever be a huge part in my birth story and we will have many more photo sessions to come!

What Moms Are Saying

“Moments with a newborn baby fly by. Allie did a flawless job of capturing the true joy in us as new parents, and the innocence in our baby. You won’t find a more caring and genuine person than Allie. Her cheerful sense of humor makes working with her very comfortable. We left the shoot with beautiful pictures and a great friend. If we get the chance to do this again, Allie is the only person we would call!”
