THANKS FOR VISITING WISE LIGHT
This business is a culmination of my love of photography and my reverance for the life altering experience of pregnancy and birth.

I have always loved photography and how it captures moments in time, whatever those may be. It is a beautiful art form that I am excited to explore formally and creatively. I am also happiest hanging with old friends and new and being witness to peoples everyday experience. And little people are fun to be around, so that is an added bonus.

On the birth side, I experienced the birth of my son two years ago. During my pregnancy, I sought out resources that helped me to feel empowered and positive about my upcoming birth. Through that experience, I choose homebirth because that felt like it was the model that would best support the kind of pregnancy and birth I envisioned for myself.

Birth was the most intense experience of my life, but also the most empowering. I regularly draw upon that experience and anticipate that it will continue inform my decision making as I move through life. That knowledge helps me move through parenting and life challenges with more grace and with greater compassion for myself.

I am excited to be working as a doula, because I feel strongly that women will benefit from access to resources and knowledge beyond the scope that traditional medical channels provide. I was lucky to have had access to friends within the birthing community who helped me have an empowered pregnancy and I am excited to now have the tools and resources to pass onto others. My knowledge and skills are applicable to both homebirth and hospital births and I am excited to assist women in their journey - in whatever setting they choose for their birth. 

I look forward to meeting you and celebrating your experience.
