Birth Stories

Birth Story - Cora Mae

I had the privilege of capturing another birth story, a couple of weeks ago, and it made my heart so happy. It’s such an exciting time, to witness a new little one, being welcomed into a loving family. Sharon, was absolutely amazing! She handled this day with such grace and patience.  And her husband, Shawn, knew exactly what she needed. They are an amazing, hilariously fun team. Before labor really started to kick in, they both had me laughing so much, my cheeks hurt! I was seriously in awe, the entire time, as I watched both of them exceed in filling their role before meeting their new baby girl. It just so happens that Sharon is also a good friend of mine, and I felt so honored to be there to capture this special day for her and her family and to help them welcome Miss Cora Mae into the world. This sweet, baby girl is irresistibly cute and is so lucky to have these people to call family.

Birth Story - Dexter

This beautiful Momma, right here, will always hold a special place in my heart. Since moving out here to Michigan, she has become a great friend and someone I will always look up to. Not only is she an incredible photographer, herself, but she is the sweetest, Mommy to her three (now four) children. It was my privilege to capture this part of her Motherhood journey. She did an AMAZING job and handled each step with such confidence and grace. I loved watching Eric and Ashley interact as the incredible team they are, preparing to welcome baby Dexter into this world. Eric and Ashley, you both did amazing and baby Dexter is the sweetest thing ever!

Birth Story - Tessa

These two! They are hilarious and the pretty much the cutest couple I have ever met. We met Dan and Heather back in February when they first moved to Michigan. Heather and I instantly hit it off and we’ve been great friends ever since. I could not be happier to have been able to capture these beautiful moments with them meeting their baby girl, Tessa, for the first time. There is nothing sweeter in life. Tessa is beautiful and she couldn’t be more blessed, to be born into such a loving family and home. Dan and Heather, thank you for letting me capture this beautiful time in your lives!

Birth Story - Henry

Jordan and Whitney are one of the sweetest couples I’ve ever met. I felt so privileged that they asked me to capture these moments for them. There is truly nothing more special than to witness the love that a parent has for their child. I honestly shed some tears while editing these images. This is a beautiful family with an incredibly handsome baby boy. Congratulations, once again Jordan and Whitney! He is simply perfect!

Birth Story - Avery

Here is a beautiful family with a adorable baby girl! Birth Stories are one of my favorite things to photograph. There is nothing sweeter, than to witness the unconditional love that a parent has for their child. Justin and Stephi, congratulations on your new addition. Avery is absolutely perfect!

Birth Story - Gemma

It was an honor to capture this once in a lifetime moment. This was my first opportunity to be a part of an entire birth story (excluding the birth of my son), and it was absolutely beautiful! I loved capturing, every little minute! Mark and Jaymie are an amazing team, and there is no doubt how much they love their little girl.  It was a breath taking experience to witness both of them, fall in love at first sight. Being a Mom myself, and now, having had the opportunity to be on the other side of the lens for this special moment, I can honestly say, there is nothing stronger than a parent’s love for their child. Mark and Jaymie, Gemma is beyond precious and I am so happy for the both of you!

Stay tuned for Gemma’s Newborn Session blog post, in the next couple of days… J

Birth Story - Baby Zoi

One of my favourite things about being a photographer, is capturing the pure joy and emotion after a baby is born. I was lucky enough, this time, to capture these special moments, just hours after Baby Zoi was born. There is nothing more special than to witness how much a parent loves their child, especially when that child is so new and perfect. As you can see, there is no doubt how much Baby Zoi is loved not only by her Mommy and Daddy, but her big Sister and Brother as well. Bobby and BreAnn, thank you for allowing me to capture these special moments with you and your beautiful children! 

Baby - Maksim


I can't even begin to describe how amazing this experience was for me. Baby Maksim was born at 26 weeks gestation. He is a living miracle. Eighty six days after he was born, little Miracle Maks was able to go home! This was an exciting time for everyone, especially his two-year old big Sister, who had not yet seen him. Logan and Shalee, I truly feel blessed that I had the privilege of capturing these special moments between you and your children. You are amazing parents and a beautiful couple! I am so grateful that our paths crossed, once again. Love Always, Erin.
