You are a badass warrior who brings forth life.

Yes, you.  

You carried your baby for months wondering what their little toes look like, what their hair is going to be like, what eye color they’re going to have. You dealt with the discomfort of pregnancy – nausea, back pain, baby’s foot in the ribs, ligament pain, light bladder and sleepless nights. NOW, one of the most important days of your life is about to happen. The day YOUR baby is born.  

Baby’s first cry. The first glimpse of your baby.

Those moments are fleeting.

I’ll immortalize them so you can remember them forever.

Kristen had such positive and encouraging emotional support for me. It helped me put my mind in a great place for labor.

Kristen Schell recently photographed the birth of my fourth child and first home birth. She made every effort to ascertain my wishes regarding modesty and which aspects of labor and birth I wanted to document. She was very supportive and interested in my personal story and how she could help preserve the memories of my son’s special birth day. Kristen was quick in editing and coming back to review the photos with me to ensure I was satisfied with her work. Overall, she went above and beyond and clearly has a passion for birth and championing moms!”

Kristen was amazing and it made our birthing experience wonderful.
