This month I was excited to receive my first awards from the Family Photojournalist Association. This organization features the work of some of the best documentary family photographers from around the world, so it’s an honor to have my work recognized by them. My two winning photos were both from births that I photographed. Here are the two photos:

      I love this priceless moment of baby Naomi and her mother seeing each other for the first time.


      This is second award I’ve received for this photo of parents-to-be arriving at the hospital. It also received a prestigious Documentary Family Award last year. I love how this photo shows the very different (yet both important) experiences of each parent.

      Thank you, LFA, for the awards! It’s lovely to be recognized, especially for work that is truly meaningful to me, like birth photography.

      Parents, if you are having a baby and would like me to photograph the birth or the first day of life, please contact me. I’d love to document one of the most important experiences of your life.
