the art of becoming a mother

The journey to motherhood is a wild one. It's both messy and beautiful and I'm here for all of it. Prepare for your transcendent, joyful birth and capture all the glorious details of the moment you meet your baby for the first time.

I'm Shannon

A birth worker, feminist and mother, based in Northamptonshire. I guide women like you to hone into their intuition and make choices about childbirth that feel natural and powerful. As a passionate photographer attending births, birth photography quickly became an offering of mine. I capture the raw intimate moments on birth and the blissful golden hour that follows, allowing you and your birth team to focus on being present and soaking in every memory.


Birth Keeping

Looking for someone to walk by your side for the duration of your wild pregnancy, undisturbed homebirth and postpartum period? Someone to listen without judgement, offer unwavering support and coach you through fear and into radical responsibility? Sisterhood is more important than ever, I'm here for you.

Motherhood & Birth Photography

Family & Birth Photography packages for those looking to capture memories of the best days of their lives. You're living it. I'll make it look beautiful. Telling stories of your pregnancy, birth and motherhood with raw and intimate photography. Use of my client wardrobe is available.

Mother's Blessing

What better way is there to honour an expectant mother than a mothers blessing. A sacred circle filled with your closest sisters. We'll share stories, make flower crowns, and treat the mother like the goddess she truly is. The inbetween of maidenhood to motherhood is to be celebrated and remembered, and I capture every moment of it. Photographs will be delivered within 2 weeks.
