BAINBRIDGE ISLAND BIRTH PHOTOGRAPHY

The birth of your baby is something so precious and a gift like no other. To document your journey, I use a photography journalism style to capture sequential moments to tell YOUR story.

I have three children of my own (1 birth with medication and two births with no medication). Since I have experienced birth, I know how important it is for me to be “a fly on a wall”. I will be as quiet as possible in your room and respect any decisions you have during the process. I will be on call from 38-42 weeks of your pregnancy. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity that is so important in many ways. If you have any questions, please give me a call and I can chat with about the experience (360) 860-1031. I’d love to meet with you in person and answer any questions you may have.

I would be so honored to be the one you trust on this special day. Let me be your storyteller…

“After a difficult labor and delivery, I am so grateful to have the beautiful images that Ashley captured. She focused on small details that could have been forgotten over time. The best part of having Ashley as our birth photographer was the positivity and warmth that she brought to the delivery room, especially as everything with the birth wasn’t going as planned. We never could have known that hiring Ashley as our photographer was also hiring a cheerleader, and a source of support during our most difficult experience. Thank you so much, Ashley!”

What I Bring to Your Birth as a Birth Photographer

  Birth is a moment that cannot be repeated. These fleeting moments are there and gone quickly… Because of this, I need to be prepared for anything! Sometimes the lighting is too dark or too bright in a birth space. Sometimes a shutter on a camera gets stuck or...

Benjamin Thomas’s Birth Story

Benjamin sure wanted a special birth story and to enter the world fast! This is the first birth I've ever missed, which I was bummed about, but I got there to capture all the moments after Ben made his appearance. I was able to capture the intense connection between...

Colin’s Birth Story

Megan had tremendous control of her body with each breath… Everyone in the room could feel her strength with each contraction…Let’s rewind to the beginning…Megan’s labor started at around midnight, when she got up…

BIRTH PRICE GUIDE

I believe in you. I believe in your body, your power, and your intuition. I believe that birth is a sacred and transformative experience that should leave women feeling strong and empowered. As one of the most important days of your life, it deserves to be remembered with vivid detail. It is my deepest honor to document these stories—of tenderness between partners, of strength you didn’t know you possessed, of love.

The stories of women being born into mothers.

 

I will be on-call starting at your 37 week mark until your baby is born. I will quietly arrive when you are in active labor (about 6cm) and stay for up until 2 hours postpartum. I want to make sure I am there to capture those sweet moments of you meeting the newest member of the family.

 

Below you will find three all-inclusive collections to choose from. These collections include my time and talent, so there is no separate session fee. Each collection comes with 75-150 artistically and professionally edited images. The number of images depends on the length of your labor.

Being welcomed into your birth space is a privilege I do not take lightly. Documenting births is a passion that requires a great deal of time, dedication, and sacrifice. For this reason, I am only available to accept a limited number of clients per month. If you are interested in booking me for birth coverage, please contact me as soon as possible.

Let’s meet for lunch one day so we can chat about the details and I can hear your birth plan. I can’t wait to hear from you!
