A New Adventure: The Journey to Birth OK

Last November, I was sitting in my living room brainstorming marketing ideas with a fellow momtrepreneur friend of mine, when out of my mouth rolled two words: birth magazine.

That sounded like a lot of work, especially just for the purpose of promoting my already-growing birth photography business; and I wasn't sure I was up for it….

A love letter to the insecure mama preparing for her birth:

There are a lot of reactions, some quite humorous, that I get when people first learn what I do for a living. Comments range from "You take pictures of WHAT?" to "You mean, you specialize in like, er, downstairs photography?" - all to which I typically respond with a chuckle and an explanation that birth photography is not about the "vag shot," but documents the power, the emotions, the first "meet cutes" that will forever mark the day a little one arrives.

The Birth Story of Cole Karsten - Grapevine Birth Photography & Videography

Earlier this year in April, I had the honor of being present for my beautiful cousin’s birth as she worked like an absolute warrior to bring her little – er, big—boy Earthside. I had been on call for a couple weeks, but as Easter weekend rolled around, it seemed more and more likely that her little man was going to make it to his planned induction date, so I made the drive down to OKC to meet my mama on Easter night, before heading on to Dallas to get settled for the big day.
