Strong as a Mother:

Full Circle Pregnancy Support & Wellbeing Through a Creative Lens

Serving Northern Virginia and Surrounding Areas
Emotional. Beautiful. Honest.

Few milestones in life eclipse the intense and intimate labor of love that you experience during pregnancy, the birth of your baby…

and those first poignant moments cradling your newborn.

As a certified birth and postpartum doula, I provide practical and emotional support and coaching through the labor & delivery process and into the transition of new parenthood. But that’s not all. With camera in hand, I create a sacred container for your child’s birth story.

You’ll not only treasure your baby’s birth images forever, the candid nature of these portraits is pivotal, helping you process the most empowering and wondrous moments of your labor and delivery.

“They remind me of how strong and capable the female body is”
“Lisa’s work is truly magnificent. Her photographs remind me of how strong and capable the female body is, and seeing them for the first time was also a very healing process for me. I really have no words to express my gratitude for Lisa. I would hire her again in a heartbeat."
Erika, Mother of Lola

Published Award-Winning Photographer | Certified Doula

Hello, I’m Lisa.
As a mother, birth photographer and a birth & postpartum doula, I intimately understand the anticipation, anxiety and excitement that comes with growing a family.

I am invested in every family that I have the honor of working with. I want to get to know your family and support you on a deeper level than snapping pictures, doing a hip squeeze, or cooking a quick meal before leaving. I want to make your journey into parenthood a positive and memorable experience.

I’m forever in awe of the transformative, emotional story of every childbirth I’m honored to attend. I value the relationships nurtured with each of the inspiring families I work with and look forward to being a trusted member of your birth team!

Through careful, compassionate listening and an open-minded, non-intrusive approach, I’m sensitive to your expectations and needs. I focus on providing the support you are seeking and creating the outcome you desire.

There are No Do-Overs for Life’s Big Moments

Trying to recall your labor and delivery experience can be confusing and bewildering.

Rather than relying on others to put the pieces of the story together, you’ll be able to sift through it yourself without regret.

Your experience deserves to be witnessed.

Preserve your family’s most endearing moments. The transformative portraits highlighting your child’s birth story will help you recall your awesome power, incredible strength and the love and support that surrounded you during one of the most extraordinary moments of your life.
