Birth

“From my mother’s womb you have been my God.”
"She captured the story of our home birth so beautifully. She even thought to capture small details that others might’ve looked over. I would absolutely welcome her into my birth space again."
"Laikyn did SUCH a wonderful job with our birth photography. I could not recommend her enough. She really went above and beyond our expectations in many ways. And her experience as a Bradley instructor and her training as a doula made the experience even more special."

Birth is messy and emotional, and absolutely worth documenting. You will never get to re-live the experience of having your newborn baby on your chest moments after birth, or your partner holding your hand or rubbing your back during contractions. Having those moments preserved through birth photography is a gift to yourself that you will cherish for the rest of your life.


I believe that birth is sacred and important. I am a big proponent of natural, unmedicated, intervention-limited birth, and as such, I am also an instructor and doula through The Bradley Method of Natural Childbirth ® or Husband-Coached Childbirth ®. I am not only available for birth photography, but also as a doula to students who go through Bradley Method ® classes with me. I offer discounts to families pursuing a natural birth at a birth center or home birth.

"Laikyn is so easy to work with, and I was looking forward to having a photographer with us during labor that is not only passionate about birth but educated as well."
