Meet your team

Kate

I believe that traveling opens your heart and mind to what the world has to offer.

My Superpower:
I am someone who carefully holds space for people, meeting each person as they are, celebrating and treasuring them without judgment. 

Personality Type:
Enneagram 6 / INFP

Why Birth:
Birth is the most human thing. It’s just you showing up as you. You have this one baby one time and it is always unknown. It must be captured in order to truly process the journey. I hope to bring to you a sense of unconditional love, safety and support. 

Fur babies:
Bruce Wayne and Robin. Our 9 year old rescue cat and 2 year old rescue pup. 

Humans:
Maddox, my curious scientist who loves climbing and following rules. Norah, my affectionate artist whose wit and sarcasm keeps us laughing all the time. Cory is the roots to my wings and true partner through our life. 

Family motto:
It’s not us against the world, it’s us IN the world. 

Client Quote:
“Beyond a photographer, Kate is a witness of one of the most important, and empowering experiences of your life.  I was moved to tears by the stunning and thoughtful art that was created.” -Mary M.

Danica 

I believe that love and belonging are basic human needs.

My Superpower:
I am a peaceful presence and am intuitively aware of the needs of others.

Personality Type:
Enneagram 9 / INFP

Why Birth:
Before I had my own kids I read an interview with Ina May Gaskin talking about the beauty in birth in a way I’d never heard before. I photographed and witnessed my first birth, and from the moment I walked into the room I knew it was a sacred space. It changed my life and perspective on birth forever. 

Fur babies:
A sweet 6 month old rescue named Cypress who’s an aussie, cattle dog mix.

Humans:
Oliver is my little shadow and can identify all kinds of birds. Sky is as spicy as he is sweet and tells me daily that I have a beautiful heart. My husband, David, is the most generous person I know and is always looking out for the underdog. 

Family motto:
Assume the best in others.

Client Quote:
“Danica, I’m speechless. These are the best images we’ve ever had as a complete family. Better than our wedding and anything else. It's even better knowing the lady behind the camera is such a beautiful soul.” -Anna

Lexi

I believe that every good conversation starts over a good meal. 

Your Superpower:
I am able to adapt to every situation and meet people where they are in the moment.

Personality Type:
Enneagram 2 / INFP

Why Birth:
There is nothing fake. The power and strength and the unique unpredictability is what first drew me. As I had my own children I began supporting and found my place.

Fur babies:
Our cat Pepperoni is consistently hanging out in the hood of my daughter's sweater. 

Humans:
Gia is so caring and authentic; she is so comfortable in her own skin and someone I admire so greatly. Indie is my daring, silly, charming, outgoing goofball. Cash is my sweet, tender-hearted one who always wants to hold my hand tell me how pretty I am. Chris is my wildly supportive husband who is always up for a cheesy romcom that he'll pretend to hate.


Family motto:
Teamwork makes the dreamwork


Client Quote:
“Lexi has an eye for the art and magic of birth, she illustrates on camera pure strength and empowerment. “

We believe representation matters.
This is a hate free business. We believe that those from all walks of life are not only welcomed, but embraced in front of our cameras and in our lives. LGBTQIA+ and the lives of black and brown people matter and should be seen more often in the photography communities.
YOU are welcome here. YOU are celebrated here.

Sarah
The Story:
I believe that life is art and it is worth celebrating.

My Superpower:
Seeing people as they are and meeting them in each varied moment.

Personality Type:
Enneagram 5 / INTP

Why Birth:
Birth is the most expansive, contractive, and life altering of transitions. I am resolute in my passion and calling to hold space, empower and support those walking this journey.

Fur babies:
Jack, a senior Berner mix with big eyes and a bigger heart. Apple, a sassy little heeler mix.

Humans:
Judah, my empath and charismatic leader. Greyson, my engineer, a little spitfire who feels big and walks this earth not afraid to take up space. 

Family motto:
Well that escalated quickly. 

Client Quote:
“Sarah is an absolute gem of the birthing community in Colorado Springs and I urge you, with all my mamma gusto, to connect with her!”
