I help people savor the season they're in by capturing a little slice on camera.

Hi, Felicia here, thank you for stopping by! Seriously, thank you. I photograph life with lots of natural light aiming to catch those facial expressions, glances, emotions, laughter of a person, couple or family in a way that makes their intangible essence tangible.

I also write because I've found it incredibly therapeutic throughout the years. And I share because there's a beautiful, sacred lightness about sharing our human experience, especially in motherhood.

A little about me: many of my childhood days were spent by the water in Seattle, WA with my super awesome single mama. We moved to the magical city of Nashville, TN a little later. There I got to witness first-hand what it meant to drop it all & follow your dreams, that "Yes!" in your spirit. As a young adult, with the encouragement of my mama, I knew I had to do the same. That first "Yes!" led me to a small town outside of Boston where I attended photography school. And I followed it again a few years after I graduated to Iceland where I met my husband and forever best friend. (I also had my first art show in downtown Reykjavik!) We later started our family back in Nashville and a little over a year ago we followed another "Yes!" and moved our growing family cross-country to Bellingham, WA. Reason? We wanted to raise our boys in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Our souls have been thanking us ever since. Motherhood met me in 2014 when we had our first son and again in 2016 when we had our second. I've been happily exhausted ever since.

     frequently asked

general photography // q+a

Do you photograph weddings? Not as often as babies and families, but I'd love to! Send me a message for pricing.

Are you available for travel? Of Course! Travel expenses will be added to the pricing packages. Email me for more information.

When should I have my maternity photos taken? Anytime after 33 weeks I think is best.

Where should I print my photos? I recommend printing directly from the client gallery. This will be the highest quality. 

Will you be doing another "Ma Dreams" project, if so how can I be a part? I hope to do more projects like MD but at the moment extra projects are on hold. Inquire and let me know you'd like to be part of my next series.

Do you photography other events such as a first birthday parties, bridal showers, bat mitzvahs, etc? Yes! Again, just send me a message and we can talk more about what you're looking for and pricing.

birth photography // q+a

What will it be like to have a birth photographer? My hope is that you might not even notice I'm there capturing this beautiful day. I will say this again and again, your comfort is priority. I will step out at times to give you space and feel free to kick me out! Every birth is different, my goal is to be calm and flexible throughout the birthing process. What will you capture at my birth? I want tell your birth story via photographs. I aim to capture as much of the story as possible to include the first moments after your baby arrives, the weigh in, first feed and special moments shared between you and your partner and/or family. When should I hire a birth photographer? I only book two, on occasion three, births per month. (I want to make sure no deliveries overlap!) This causes my calendar to fill quickly! If you know you want a birth photographer I'd recommend going ahead and contacting me as soon as you have a guess date. In the event I do not have any openings I can direct you to other birth photographers in town. Will you use flash and artificial lights? I use as much natural and available light as much as possible. I try and stay away from flash as much as I can because I know it can be distracting. That being said, births that happen at night do need some flash to capture key moments. Your comfort is my top priority so if in any case you feel uncomfortable I will put the flash away. Will you share my birth on your website? Birth is extremely personal and intimate.  I love sharing birth photos and stories but I want to respect what you're comfortable with and will not post unless I have your OK. (We can also revisit your day later if you want a platform to share your birth experience!)
