hello-from-love-at-first-sight-photography-and-doula-services.jpg

Thank you for your interest in our premier doula support, boutique birth photography, Fresh 48, Newborn Lifestyle, Maternity & breastfeeding portrait services.

Love at First Sight Photography & Doula Services was founded to support women before, during and after birth to meet the growing need for labor support in our community as well as providing timeless boutique portraits throughout your parenting journey.

It is now widely recognized that choosing to add a labor support person to one's birth team can yield many positive benefits. A woman's memories of her birth experiences last a lifetime and can have powerful affects on her self esteem and confidence. I am committed to helping women and couples feel empowered and supported as they experience birth. 

It is my goal to help mothers learn to trust in their beautiful, strong bodies and trust in the birthing process. The moment that a baby is born is joyous and wondrous. It is my wish for mothers and their partners to experience the birth of their babies as fully as possible.

It would be an honor to have the opportunity to share this time with you. I will work to support you to birth in awareness, where you feel confident, informed, and surrounded with care, love, respect and timeless portraits.

We believe that childbirth is an beautiful experience that not only results in the birth of a precious baby but the birth of a family. We support families in communicating effectively with their birth team, trusting their instincts and being educated as much as possible not only in birth but the journey into parenthood as well. 

We believe in supporting all families 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. 

We have experience in un-medicated births, epidural use, other pain management use, water births, cesarean birth and VBAC in a wide array of birth settings in hospitals, birth centers and homebirths around the North Carolina area.

Sarah is absolutely a delight to work with! She is patient and caring - she truly wants to help capture memories. We highly recommend her!! - Kristian
HANDS DOWN ONE OF THE BEST DECISIONS WE MADE!!!! Sarah is so good at what she does and does it with gentle love and care. She came as our birth photographer but left as a friend. We now have some of the most amazing photos from one of our most incredible moments of our lives. She is THE BOMB! - Phóüòc
Sarah was amazing, checking in with me from my delivery date up until my little girl finally decided to arrive, she arrived at the birthing center with very short notice and documented our birth story so beautifully. I barely noticed her taking pictures, I did however notice when she would cool off a wash cloth for me as I labored in the tub, I noticed when she was there holding my hand, rubbing my face as the midwife stitched me up afterwards while my husband bonded with our precious newborn. Our pictures turned out beautifully, and I feel that we gained not only a wonderful documentation but a friendship as well. I would highly recommend Sarah’s services, both as a photographer and doula. I hope to hire her for both in the future! - Sarah
Sarah was my rock during my labor, her reassurance was very comforting and I truly thank her for all the support not only in my delivery but before and after as well. If you ever had a thought on if you wanted a doula, hire Sarah you will not be disappointed - Keiy

1 Peter 4:8-10 Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins. Show hospitality to one another without grumbling. As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace:
