Birth Photography: Taking clients starting with late March 2014 due dates.
Placenta Encapsulation: No break! I will be encapsulating at any time.

Stefani Maternity Mini-Shoot | Tyler TX Maternity Photography

I loved doing a mini maternity shoot with beautiful Stefani, who was 38 weeks pregnant during the shoot! The reason they are watermarked with “Kali Shanti Photography” is because I’m launching a new photography business for other types of photography besides birth! I’m excited! I’m working on a website, but my Facebook page is Kali Shanti Photography. I’d love for you all to “Like” my page!

Birth of Baby Kyra | Tyler, TX Birth Photography

I was so blessed to be both the doula and the photographer for this birth!.This sweet family was a repeat client of mine; I attended the birth of their firstborn, Kidron, two years ago and was SO happy they chose to have me again! It was a beautiful birth, with Mama so calm and happy, even surprising us all when she was still talking and laughing at 7cm! Her sweet daughter was born with minimal pushing in the water, which was a huge answer to prayer as she had really wished for a shorter second stage labor than her last birth. Her daughter, Kyra, is just gorgeous, and I loved being there.
