AN ATLANTA COLLECTIVE OF PHOTOGRAPHERS & DOULAS

 

Documenting and guiding authentic birth stories in Atlanta, Georgia for those
who believe in the transformative power of supported childbirth. 

 
We are a group of women passionate about guiding you through and documenting the story of your birth. With a shared belief in fostering a sense of community over competition we know that we are stronger together than we are apart and through the support and encouragement we receive from each other we are able to strengthen our work and provide the most consistent, authentic and beautiful birth photography and doula experience in Atlanta.

Unique from other birth workers in Atlanta, all three of us work together as a team for each of our clients. It truly takes a village and by using a shared call model we are able to better serve the families we work with by providing them with support, expertise, and care from all of us. Inviting someone into your birth space is a big deal and for so many of our clients it is important that they are familiar with the person who will be attending their birth. Working with all of us from day one ensures that you will have an established relationship with the person who comes to your birth. And while only one of us will be present for your labor and delivery, our integrated approach allows us to support each other and in turn provide a better experience for you.

Having relied on each other for support in the past as back up doula/photographers, we began to see that something was lacking from the Atlanta birth community. As photographers on our own we were always on call, unable to accept as many clients as we would have liked to, and struggling to give the clients we could take on a strong sense of security in knowing, that no matter what, someone who cared for them, knew their preferences, that they were familiar with, would be able to attend their birth if for some reason we could not. So we decided to come together, putting community over competition, and form The Collective.

We are proud to be a part of the birth community in Atlanta and while we do offer both photography and doula services, we LOVE working with other doulas and photographers! Community over competition. We think it, live it, love it!
