Oakland Pittsburgh photographers

It all started when…

Kate was pregnant and contacted Jess about Birth Photography. They hit it off immediately and Kate hired Jess for her birth. It was an epic, beautiful birth!

In the months to follow Kate contacted Jess again about the possibility of pursuing her dream of being a photographer herself, asking about her gear and getting started. A wonderful deeper bond began to form and their friendship blossomed. Jess shared with Kate all her tips and tricks and Kate also shared all of her tips, and tricks! 

Jess and Kate came together to really make an impact in the Pittsburgh birthing community. Being in a partnership allows Kate and Jess to have sustainable long lasting careers as birth workers, serve more families, have reliable responsible business practices, and to pull their resources together to educate families about their birthing options and what it means to have photography in a birthing space!
