Hello there, Mama to be!
I guess this is the part where I’m supposed to generically tell you how passionate I am about photography and describe myself perfectly so you fall in love with me. Honestly, I hate talking about myself and when we first meet you’ll see that I’m a socially awkward introvert who is terrible at small talk. I don’t want you to hire me for meaningless reasons--I want you to hire me because we connect on a deeper level and believe the experience is worth remembering.
Three weeks after vacationing in Arizona with my husband I woke up feeling off. I took a pregnancy test and when that faint little pink line started to appear I got the surprise of my life! I’m a firm believer that knowledge is power and began researching all of my birth options--I dug really deep. We met with a local birth center and 36 weeks later the birth plan we so carefully planned was out the window.
The day our daughter made her way in to this world was the most intense & transformative experience of my life. In that delivery room I emerged a mother and learned that I'm stronger that I ever knew. I struggled with PPD for about two years post delivery and it was in this dark place that my love for birth photography emerged.
Choose me as your photographer because you trust me. The kind of unwavering trust that you put in choosing your midwife, OB and doula. The kind of trust that says you want me supporting you on the most important day of your life. Choose me because you love my work and want to see your birth story through my eyes.
And if you’re still curious after reading all this…
My name is Lindsey. I’m the woman (wife & mother) behind Born Photography in Salt Lake City, Utah. I’m originally from Texas and say things like “y’all” & “fixin’ to”, minus the Southern accent. I rarely wear make-up and could spend hours sipping a chai latte lost in meaningful thought or conversation. I’m a free-thinking feminist who supports equality for all and could talk about birth all day long.
My goal is simple: To empower & support you on your birth day by providing a series of beautiful images that tell the story of the day you transformed into a mother. You are more beautiful than you know and it would be an honor to preserve this experience for you & your family.
