Hi, I'm Emily

I am a licensed massage therapist (NC #14446), birth doula and photographer

living in Winston Salem, NC with my husband and our two boys.

In 2013, I moved to North Carolina and married my best friend. There, I enrolled at the Kneaded Energy School of Massage (Greensboro) and became licensed the following year. I pride myself on providing each of my clients with the upmost care and respect, striving for open-communication, high ethical standards and quality care with the belief that everyone deserves compassion and non-judgmental support.

After the birth of our first child, I realized my passion for birth work and the significance that continuous emotional support and physical comfort can have on the overall experience and memory of childbirth. In 2017, I decided to begin my journey as a Birth Doula and Childbirth Educator, and work toward certification.

I decided to combine this passion with my love of photography because birth is amazing. I'm so impressed by our ability to grow and birth tiny humans, by our strength and power. I want to capture those precious, fleeting moments to hold onto when you finally get to meet your baby, your expression, their first breathe and first cry, your partner's reaction, and when your older children meet their new baby brother or sister.

I don’t care what your plans are or where you choose to birth.

I care that you feel heard, validated, and supported through it all.

"A woman, as long as she lives, will remember

how she was made to feel at her birth."
