TACOMA 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’m excited to be expanding my birth services to the Tacoma community. If you are having your baby at home, a hospital or the birth center, now is the time to reserve your EDD (estimated due date) for birth photography. I take a maximum of two births per month, so it is never too early to reserve your spot.

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!”

Clara Elizabeth Birth Story

Clara Elizabeth Birth Story

“The urge to bear down came over me and I went with it. It felt like it went on for minutes. And then the pause. And then I pushed again and then Morgan and Megan tell me to pant and to slow down which is the hardest thing to do in the world. I do what they say as I’m locking eyes with them like an animal because…”

Leo Kimpo’s Birth Story

"It’s been awhile now since Leo graced our lives with his sweet presence and I can’t help but feel so appreciative of my body...my belly held life. My belly; now a vacant and deflated home, cradled my sweet baby for months. This was, by far, the absolute most...

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!
