Labor in the Time of Corona

Families, Newborn

This season has affected all of us in countless ways, and expectant/new parents certainly are showing strength and love in amazing ways as their hopes and expectations for this season are altered greatly. Despite cancelled baby showers, doctor’s appointments, visitor limitations– the list goes on, as a photographer and expectant Mama (due May 9th!) myself, I want to help all sweet babies joining the world amid Covid-19 deserve sweet, timeless images.

Don’t worry about trying to be a professional photographer in this moment. Let the sweet nurse at your bedside take your first family photo and pass off your phone to your partner when your babe is having those little foot prints made; I’ll take care of the rest!

For the months of April & May I am offering complimentary editing for delivering families (any/all/anywhere!) You are invited to submit up to 10 photos from labor, delivery, birth, recovery etc. for professional retouching & a gallery will be returned to you! **Google log-in required to access the form & upload your files. Email with any questions/issues!

** Photographers have been generous to jump on board in just the last few hours to make sure May families can be served while I am having our 2nd baby girl! Amazing!! As such, your edits may be completed by a different person, but they will be amazing no less! **

For a peek at real, everyday families & the before and after you can expect of your images, scroll on! So much sweetness…. ahhhh!

All of these are cell phone images of the most precious moments that we just can’t get back, and it’s such an honor to be able to offer something so small to make sure these moments are beautifully preserved, especially during this unprecedented time.

Please complete this form to submit your images (google log-in required// email with questions!), or share with a family you know! And from one Spring 2020 mama-to-be to another, congratulations! We can do this, and oh what stories we will have to tell 🙂

Also, because people have been asking! All editing up to 10 images is complimentary but there is an opportunity for families to donate directly when they submit. A portion of every donation will go directly to Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep, an organization that equips photographers like myself to serve families with timeless photography upon losing a baby. During this time, I am also editing for these families, and continue to be honored to do this work.

Should you be interested in donating, even if you are not submitting images for retouching, your generosity will go directly back to all these families. The link to donate is here: (Paypal account not required)

All my love,
