Paige is such a calm and encouraging presence. She is quick to listen and made me feel so understood and validated in many concerns and questions that I had during pregnancy. She is kind and gracious- I felt very comfortable with her being a part of my birth experience. She is an excellent photographer and was able to capture some gorgeous shots of my labor, delivery, and the precious first moments with my baby that I will treasure forever! I highly recommend Paige as a doula and a birth photographer!
Paige was our doula for the birth of our son Solomon in December 2015. Her presence and varied skill set were an asset to all stages of an unpredictable birth process, which included an induced labor and extended hospital stay. She was very flexible, returning to the hospital a couple different times and generally making herself as supportive and available as possible during this unpredictable time. She was absolutely focused on supporting the mother-to-be, always considering how she could support the process. Her calm demeanour was a huge comfort during the intensity of active labor and birth, and she very capably photographed the end stages of labor, birth, and our first few moments together as a family. Her photographs are something none of us put any forethought into before the birth, but now that we have them they are treasures we will always be grateful to have! Her meetings with us before the birth were very informative, helping us to consider the wide range of possibilities and choices to be made during and directly after birth. After the birth, she visited our home to check in with us and to take some more photos of our newborn son.
All in all, we have nothing but positive things to say about Paige and the help and support she provided during what was simultaneously the most exhausting and joyful event of our lives.
