Sarah Stanley Doula and Birth Photographer

About Sarah from Love at First Sight Photography & Doula Services

Sarah was called into the birth world when she was serving in the United States ARMY.  After giving birth to her first, she followed and supported three of her fellow soldiers through their birthing journey. At that time she had no idea what a "Doula" was but felt this is where the Lord needed her to be.  After serving her country, Sarah felt led to guide others into self advocacy and to empower women by trusting in themselves and bodies. She started on the journey of becoming not only a Doula but a professional photographer and later specializing in birth documenting. After attending DONA training in 2014 and  completing her training, Sarah was able to do hands on work with teens and young moms with the YWCA before climbing on board as a trained professional Doula. 

Sarah is blessed with an amazing husband, three children and two angel babies. Sarah loves her animals and enjoys the simple things in life like spending time with her family and serving at her church. When she is not busy at a birth you can find her most days with a camera glued to her hand documenting the world around her, homeschooling her children or outside basking in the sun.

Sarah's passion, love and excitement are displayed in her work daily. She believes pregnancy and childbirth are a beautiful experience, that not only results in the birth of a precious baby, but the birth of a mother and family. Sarah's mission is to support mothers in communication with their birth team, and teaching mothers to trust their instincts, not only through their birth journey but , but into parenthood as well. 

Love at First Sights Birth Philosophy: We believe that childbirth is an amazing experience that not only results in the birth of a precious baby but the birth of a mother and family. We support mothers in communicating effectively with their birth team, trust their instincts and be as educated as much as possible not only in birth but the journey into parenthood as well. 

We believe in supporting all women and all birthing experiences with love and without judgment. We recognize that each birth and person is unique and do not cast judgment on how you and your family wish to bring your baby into the world.
