Ashley and I met 5 years ago at Friday Night Doulas at Best Start Birth Center, just a few months earlier, I had decided to specialize in birth photography. It was Ashley who nicknamed me ‘the birth photographer with the doula heart’, as she recognized something in me that I hadn’t yet. Little did I know then, that I would get to photograph her 2nd daughter’s birth, after they’d moved to Florida and back to San Diego again. We reconnected, and I got to witness her birth journey. Her strength and grace, and Trevor’s unwavering support, were truly inspiring. I’ll be forever grateful to Ashley and Trevor, for their trust in me to document this special journey for them.
