Today I found out that I placed in the annual Documentary Family Awards. I scored ninth place in the Birth category, which is a pretty big deal since it’s a huge, international competition.

      I don’t often enter photo competitions, but I chose to participate in this one because I love their philosophy. The Documentary Family Awards celebrate family photojournalism and the art of authentic storytelling. I’m proud to be able to display this award!


      You can see all the winners HERE. They are extraordinary!

      If you are having a baby, I would love to document one of the most important days in your life. Browse through my birth portfolio, and then contact me know if you’d like me to do the same for you. I love photographing births! They might be my favorite thing to photograph of all.
