From Bump to Birth
10 :: 13 :: 2018
I am so happy to introduce these two! When Krista and Joy approached me for their headshots I knew we were going to have a great time but I was laughing the entire time it was so fun! When they decided to train to become doulas a few months ago I was thrilled to see them flouish in this calling of theirs. They attended the same doula training as I did and I can vouch for their passion and committment as well. I was able to work alongside them as a birth story photographer for a recent birth and can honestly say "DOULAS ARE SO AMAZING!"
Here is a little bit about thier business and some of my personal favorites from their gallery!
"Hi! I'm Krista! I am a mother to two very spirited toddler boys (3 years and 1 year old). I work full-time with the flexibility to be a birth doula! It wasn’t until my 2nd birth how I realized how important having a doula was to a birth team. The support the women provided me with my second birth gave me my passion to help educate, advocate and empower other women!
Hi! I’m Joy! I’m a wife and mama to 3 awesome kids (ages 18, 14 1/2 and 12). For as long as I can remember I have felt “called” to be a part of the birth world. As a Doula, I look forward to becoming a part of your birth story by lending my knowledge, mental and physical support and most of all, my heart in such a huge life moment.
From Bump To Birth Doulas, LLC started in July 2018. We were both trained through DONA International as birth doulas and work as a team. We have each attended 6 births since August 2018 and have structured our business around wanting our moms-to-be to have the most support possible (which is why you get both of us during prenatals, labor and postpartum visits).
What do we do? We hold space. We are a safe zone. We support you emotionally and physically. We are a listening ear. We are a cheerleader. We are a shoulder to cry on. We are someone you can laugh with. We are a game changer. We are doulas.
When we contacted Brandy for headshots, we wanted casual headshots. We wanted people to see us in real life for who we were. We wanted relatable and friendly images that showed our true personality. We wanted to be ourselves and wanted our clients and future clients to see us for who we are. Most of the time you will see us in workout clothes at a birth!
We wanted to use these in our marketing and know that people would recognize us. We didn’t want to get dressed to the nines and have people not recognize who we were when sitting down for a consultation. We are everyday people. We wanted that to reflect in our images. Huckleberry Cloud Photography executed our wants/needs in our photo’s effortlessly!"
Thank you Krista and Joy for your kind words and commitment to great birth experiences!
