Looking through Nevada’s birth story allows me to relive the most empowering day of my life. Sure I will always remember the moment I met my baby, but now I get to see it. And I get to see all the things I missed while I was busy working so hard. The undivided support my husband gave me and the way he looked at me the moments after our baby arrived, my very close friends with tears of happiness in their eyes, my supportive mother playing with my 4 year old in the room next to me. My strength. Dana’s photos take me right back to those moments. Her first breath, her first cry, our first touch, first latch. Makes me melt all over again!

Dana has not only the poise and creativity of a professional photographer, but she brings a special presence to the birthing space. As a midwife, I see many birth photographers. Dana is unique in her ability to be there and then blend in. She brings a comforting and affirming touch or word at appropriate times. She respects the space of the birthing family and the attending staff, while still getting amazing shots. She seems to intuitively know when to blend in, and when to step up. She is calm, quiet, and reverent of the birthing space. She is both gifted creatively, and intuitively.

The images and video Dana took move me. They remind me of how strong my wife is for doing what she did and how truly special the experience was to go through. If you as an expecting father are second guessing if you need someone there to document this... Don’t. It’s worth every single penny. The images she captured are priceless and besides making the choice to actually have a baby, making the choice to have Dana document it was one of the best moves we as a family ever made.
