Phoenix area Birth Photography, Doula and Placenta Services
My name is Faye
and I serve families in Phoenix, Arizona and the
I have been a DONA (Doulas of North America) Certified Birth Doula as well as a Birth Photographer and Placenta Crafter for the last 4 years. Little did I know that I would find my passion in birth work at the ripe old age of 53! I always say that I wish I would have become a doula many years ago but I also recognize that each of us have a path we have to travel to arrive where we are today and my experiences have definitely brought me to this fun-filled, rewarding life I am living.
I'm so lucky to have been married to my husband Ron for the last 19 years. Our blended family consists of 3 daughters and 1 son who are all grown and married. We are blessed to have 10 grandchildren who call us Nana and Papa and who add so much joy to our lives.
I have loved everything related to birth since I was pregnant with my own children many years ago. I had dreams of becoming a Labor and Delivery Nurse but with three little kids I knew that schooling would not be possible. My birth experiences were mediocre at best and I now realize that I wasn't involved in the decisions that were made by my doctors and nurses. I am now passionate about empowering my clients so they know they have options and do not have to settle.
I didn't fall in love with photography until after I became a doula but it's safe to say that it brings me so much happiness and fulfillment. It has been so fun learning to capture the true rawness and beauty of birth in a way that brings a lifetime of memories for my clients.
It's not always easy to live the "on call" life but I am so honored that I am invited to witness the miracle of birth and the strength and courage of my clients. It is my desire to serve and empower women and help them have confidence in their birth journey.
