I can’t say enough good things and can’t imagine our birth story without Bree! As first time parents we knew we wanted birth support. From the initial meeting she was so warm and sweet that I immediately reached back out to book her. Plus I really loved all the services she could provide.

Bree was always available for questions leading up to our due date and provided a mini birth class at our home. Always felt like she cared and truly wanted to educate us. I felt so supported as my labor began and absolutely loved having her guide us through the process when I birthed at home and later at the hospital. She was our advocate, informed us about all our options and helped coach my husband - but made him feel included which was so important for us! We were also lucky to get birth photos added. I will cherish these forever!!

After birth she checked on me often, answered all my questions and did an additional visit to our home. We had our newborn photos completed, plus placenta encapsulation and sitz bath herbs. The experience was really everything I could have wanted and more! She made us fee comfortable and we enjoyed getting to know her as well.

Hubby says you’re a birth gangsta. We love you and looking forward to using you again!!

Bree took the time to get to know me and my family before my birth. She made sure that I was thoroughly educated about all the possible things that could present during birth. My birth was long and she stood by me for a whole 24 hrs supporting me AND making sure my husband was taken care of and processing everything alright. She took amazing photos of everything as well. Her support continued postpartum checking on me regularly. She was a huge reason I had a successful VBAC. I can not recommend her enough!

Bree is absolutely amazing. Not only does she really know her stuff, but she is one of those people who you instantly want to be friends with. Her energy is so positive and laid back and she is truly a joy to be around. There was never a visit void of a few good laughs! Her wealth of knowledge and experience is so evident in everything she does. You will feel such a peace knowing you've hired someone you can trust to be able to go to with questions and to be able to handle whatever may arise during birth! I'm a doula myself and I still ended up going to her for so many questions and reassurance! We hired Bree primarily as our photographer and what she was able to capture was simply incredible. Every shot felt ‘magazine worthy’ and completely took our breaths away. She really captured our story perfectly and looking back through our photos feels like reliving that amazing day. It’s remarkable to look at these perfectly framed and composed shots, and to realize that these were mere seconds. How she is able to capture moments so quickly and so beautifully just goes to show just how good she is at what she does. I cannot recommend her enough!!! Whether you hire her as your photographer, videographer, or birth doula you will not be so very glad you did. She is an all around wonderful person who will make your experience even that much greater. ??

I don't know what I would have done without Bree! Bree made sure we had a plan going into my hospital birth and we stuck to it. Since it was my first pregnancy I had no clue what to expect, but Bree did! She kept me on track with our pregnancy plan the entire way and coached my husband on how best to support me during our longggggg labor.
I can honestly say that because if Bree's expertise, we tried everything in attempt to get my baby out vaginally. Given my baby was sunny side up and over 9 pounds (and head size was 99 percentile!), I was unable to push her out so the birth resulted in a c section. I was scared to say the least, but Bree was there for that too letting me know that it was going to be okay. 
Bree also took pictures and video of the whole thing! Which is great because in hind sight I feel like I hardly remember it. Because of the (gracefully conservative) film, I can look back at how hard I tried during the labor and rejoice as I see the first look at our precious, perfect baby girl! 
Thank you Bree for all that you did for our family ensuring the end result was a healthy, happy family!

We were lucky enough to have Bree with us for our last two births. Bree is the full package!! She is extremely knowledgeable on pregnancy, labor, birth and postpartum, she takes breath taking pictures/videos, her presence is calming, reassuring, and fun and she is an advocate for moms needs and wants. She is happy to take on any role that she is needed in while at birth and I can't imagine labor and delivery without her. On one of the most important days of your life, you need someone like Bree to support, encourage, and document!

I contacted Bree really late in my second pregnancy and am so glad i did. I was really hesitant about hiring a doula, worrying if it would take away from my husband’s experience and if it was really necessary to have one since I didn’t have one at my first child’s birth. 1) she did not replace my husband as the main supporter, only added extra help and support which freed up my husband to never have to leave my side. 2) having bree to confide in was so beneficial to the experience both during pregnancy, birth and postpartum. My only question is why are Doulas so underrated?! I really do believe that Doulas are the unsung heroes of  a birthing team.

 Bree is like a power bank of energy, joy, love, compassion, understanding and cheer & having someone like her in the room was everything I ever needed. I specifically remember one contraction where Bree tended to my unspoken needs that only she knew, filling me with calmness and love ?? I am so grateful for Bree’s presence and only wish I would of found her sooner!

Bree was fantastic! She was such a joy to have around and helped put my mind at ease throughout my pregnancy and birth. My husband was so thankful for her direction and support. He felt empowered to give me what I needed. This child birth experience was so much more enjoyable than my first thanks to Bree. I am so thankful for her!

Bree was amazing!! She came to our home an spent so much time educating us and helping get our little one in position for birth. While our birth didn't go quite as planned Bree was there to help guide and make sure I was as comfortable as I could be. She was so helpful and supportive in every way. I will forever cherish the pictures she took of our son being born. I would absouletly hire Bree again with my next child.

I hired Bree to be my birth videographer and paid the extra fee to have her also be my doula (if I needed it). HA. Boy did I need her. My birth ended up being a marathon birth of 48 hours, 32 of those she was right by my side. She was patient and encouraging and the tough love that I needed at just the right times. She helped my husband to care for me the best way he could and she picked up any slack that was left. Bree can hold space like no other. She seems to know when to step in and when to give room. She never once made me feel like I was taking too long or wasting her time. When I eventually ended up transferring to the hospital, she walked me through what might happen and cheered me on to use my voice and fight for my rights. She physically and mentally held me up in the hardest moments and did it all with a camera in her hand. Trust me, she will be a benefit to any birth space.

There aren’t enough words to describe how amazing Bree is during labor and even before. For weeks leading up to labor she checked in, comforted and advised me on any questions and concerns I had. When it was finally time for baby she made sure she was available despite her husband recently being injured and dealing with her own children. She helped me stay calm and focused for all 26 hours of labor and used many techniques and ideas to help get baby out, we would hire her 100x over and for our next little baby too. If you can by any means hire Bree to be your doula or photographer I definitely suggest her. We love Bree!!!
