Birth Photography



Vanilla Bean Births. Beautiful. Exciting. Thrilling. And most importantly, they are REMEMBERED.
If you hire a photographer to capture your wedding, why would you not hire one to capture that first breath of your child? Every birth is different, and I will capture your birth with a calm patience and a sweet quiet presence, with images you will never regret.

Now that you’ve chosen Vanilla Bean Photography, I just want to say: Thank you!!

A few quick things: #1. This is me.

I’m a 20-something wife with a passion for living life well and having no regrets. Jesus died so that I could have new life in Him, and I try to live every day with that in my mind. I don’t have any children of my own yet, but when that day comes, it will be a life long dream come true.
I attended my first birth when I was just 5 years old, and have loved the birth atmosphere ever since. I have photographed 10+ births in the past 4 years, and I cannot contain my excitement that I get to be there for yours. Since we may not meet until that big day, I wanted to let you know how I work. In the labor room, I am quiet, reserved, and peaceful. I smile. I take breaks. I photograph with only available light, so this makes it easier for you to concentrate without having a flash go off, but it also makes it harder to get absolutely everything on your list. A birth is an uncontrolled event for me to photograph, so while I will do my best to get everything you want, I can’t guarantee that a specific shot will happen. However, I know that your labor and delivery will be completely tailored to fit YOU, and you alone. It’s going to be beautiful, it’s going to be LIFE.
