Hello and welcome!
I’m excited to announce a new weekly feature on my blog and social media! Each Friday I will feature a different product, service, event, or business. I will try to mix it up but will mainly focus on the topics of pregnancy, birth, postpartum, breastfeeding, and family.
I am kicking things off with the amazing Raven Ivory Photography. Raven is an incredible photographer and videographer, who I am grateful to call my friend. Our birth community is truly richer because of Raven’s presence.
Raven is most well known for her beautiful birth photography and films, but she also offers documentary-style family sessions. These range from 12 hour “Day in the Life” sessions down to 2 hour “Glimpse of the Life” sessions. They are gorgeous ways to document families doing the things the love and Raven loves preserving families’ authentic, magic everyday moments. How lovely is that?!
As the daughter of a midwife, she has been around birth her whole life and thus is very comfortable documenting all aspects of the birth and postpartum experience. Raven has a wonderful eye and creates such dreamy images! She captures the smallest details so well, and I love how she manages to show the true range of emotions that birth and postpartum includes. She is a dream to work with as a doula and makes everyone feel comfortable. Raven brings the same warmth to her family sessions and creates truly beautiful images!
Here is a sampling of her work:
Let me know if you have ideas for a future Feature Friday! I would love to hear from you!
