About Sarah

I am a veteran of the United States ARMY, Doula, Professional Birth Photographer, Jesus following, doTERRA loving, wife and mother to two wonderful boys and one princess =) I have always been fascinated and in LOVE with photography and birth.I hit the road running in 2012 after I served my time with this great nation and purchased my first DSLR camera and haven't looked back. I attended my first birth to document shortly after starting out and noticed that the mother needed an encouraging person to help her through this vulnerable time. I was in my happy place, taking priceless photographs and helping this mother achieve the birth she wanted. At that time, I had no idea what a "doula" was until I became pregnant with my second and stumbled across an article while researching my own birth where I found my doula and now business partner Kimberly. I knew at that moment that this is what my calling was. A professional Photographer and a professional Doula! I took the leap in 2014 and attended a DONA doula training course and worked with the YWCA teen mother program for about a year. In 2016 I joined not one but TWO empowering groups, WomanWise Doula Collective and the International Association of Professional Birth Photographers "IAPBP". 

Love at First Sights Birth Philosophy: We believe that childbirth is an amazing experience that not only results in the birth of a sweet baby but the birth of a mother. 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 sweet baby into the world. 

<3 I look forward to meeting you and your family <3
