Here are some reflections on Paige's services, shared by her grateful clients:

"I was on the fence about getting a Doula for the birth of my second & not sure if I really wanted/needed my birth photographed. But I cannot tell enough people how happy I am that Paige was by my side and every step of the way!! She knew exactly what to say & how to support me through my VBAC & I highly, highly recommend her! I struggle to find the words for how precious her photos are to me. I treasure them as much as I do my wedding photos. They capture moments that I can’t remember and moments that bring tears to my eyes. My only regret is that I didn’t have her at the birth of my first." ~ Caralyn K.

"I was extremely pleased with the Birth Doula Services as well as the Birth Photography I received from Paige. We hired Paige to attend the birth of our second child (a home water birth), and it was so great to have her; I wish I would have had her at my first birth as well. We hired her primarily as a Birth Doula, it was a real bonus to have her take beautiful pictures as well (they are priceless). My husband and I were so thankful to have had Paige supporting us during labor. She helped me cope with, & time my contractions, and she knew just when to call the midwife to come. She also made sure I stayed hydrated and brought me snacks so I would have energy. She was there for me to lean on when my husband was busy getting the birth tub temperature just right. I can't say enough to describe how thankful I am to have had her at my birth. For anyone considering hiring a birth doula I think it is worth it, and Paige is highly qualified!" ~ Zedory C.

"I just went through the pictures and (not to sound too dramatic) but I almost cried because I love them so much! Honestly, they are fantastic and you were able to capture so much about the boys that I will always want to remember. You got all of my favorite expressions of theirs, and I am grateful!" ~ Adri T.

"I hired Paige to photograph my first home birth which ended up being a two-day labor in the hospital. Paige was there for 33 hours of that time, patiently waiting with us and capturing many special moments. Her own experience as a wife and mother make her perfect for birth photography. In the tense moments when my midwives were tending to me, my husband was able to hang out with Paige and she was a pillar of calm, positive energy. She is also so fast at getting pictures edited and the sneak peak posts are a wonderful treat to enjoy right away. My birth slideshow is my favorite. She picked the perfect song and wonderful photos. Everyone cried when they watched it.
Bottom line: Paige is incredibly talented. Her customer service is out of this world and working with her is wonderful. If you're considering her for her birth services...DO IT. She's amazing!" ~ Ruthie F.

"Paige knows how to capture exactly the moments you want without inserting herself into your memories. She is phenomenal at working with people to produce fantastic photos. I have used her on 4 separate important photos shoots and each one turned out better than I could have imagined. Not only did she come prepared with her expertise and creativity regarding poses and locations, but she was very open and accommodating to my ideas. I will hire her for every shoot!" ~ Elizabeth R.

------------------------------------------

I've been following Paige's site for over a year now, and I'm continually in awe of the gorgeous photos she captures of parents and children at all stages of their family's journey. I'm proud to have her as an SV Toddler sponsor, and can enthusiastically recommend her to my readers.

Again, please mention SV Toddler when you call to book Paige's services this month for a $50 discount. 

Thank you, Paige, for supporting local women, and for supporting SV Toddler!
