San Antonio Birth and Family Photographer

Kind Words


"I can't tell you enough how blessed I am to have Vanessa capture the maternity and birth pictures of our miracle baby Jude. From my cancer diagnosis- stress from being through 6 rounds of chemo w Jude, she was always there; during labor she was patient, calm and captured the most AMAZING pictures for us. Even our first& last time breastfeeding before my double mastectomy. I highly highly recommend Vanessa. Pictures are beautiful and she captured the most important moments! I'm happy to now call her one of my good friends!!" - Reagan

Seeing Vanessa in action, I can see her love of her work. Her high level of professionalism, her compassion, and her natural talent reflects in the amazing imagers she captures. The value of investing in her services is priceless.

“Vanessa was highly recommended to me by many moms in this community so I contacted her to see if there was any possible way she could fit us into her busy birth photography schedule(I was in my third trimester already). She met with us that same week and we thankfully were able to book her.  Vanessa kept in constant contact. Even going above and beyond by asking how we were doing along with offering emotional support. If anyone has gone past their due date they would know how much support is needed and almost necessary.  After our amazing and super fast birth of our son, Vanessa sent our gallery to us. I looked it over at least five times because 1- they were amazing and, 2- I had missed so much because of all the chaos.  A week later she took our sons newborn pictures that were just as amazing as our birth pictures. Let me tell you- newborn shoots are a TON of work! Vanessa made us feel at home and was able to catch the pictures she needed even though our little guy was the opposite of cooperative.  Not only did Vanessa take amazing pictures and become a life long friend, she gave me more memories to add to my birth that I had missed when I labor.  Thank you a million times over for the special gift you have given us Vanessa!” - Kristen

Vanessa, I’m always blown away by your work - you showed me what a powerful and beautiful woman I am - something all woman are and are uniquely gifted to do. Thank you for the work you do; our family will always treasure the moments you’ve captured.

"Vanessa's superb professionalism and skill are equally matched by her kind and considerate personality- she was the perfect compliment to my birth support team, and her photos captured the memory of my daughters birth beautifully. I am still amazed by and will cherish Vanessa's photographs of Evelyn's birth forever, and will be highly recommending Vanessa to expectant families. Thank you for all you do!" - Nathalie

I loved working with Vanessa! She took my maternity, birth and newborn/family photos and we couldn’t be happier with how beautiful they all turned out. One of my birthing photos even made it into an article in the Huffington Post! She made us feel so comfortable and was so much fun to be around! I highly recommend her services and will be using her again for my baby’s 6 month and 1 year photos! Can’t wait!

"My husband and I met Vanessa the day we went into labor. We knew our due date was approaching, but when my water broke that evening we were surprised and happy she was able to join us on such short notice.  Labor was intense and 21 hours. Vanessa was with us for the last 18 of those. While my husband was my foundation, Vanessa was my comfort. She eased my back labor, and made sure I stayed hydrated. When my confidence started to waiver, she gave me words of encouragement to focus my thoughts on.  The delivery of our son would not have been the same without Vanessa. I will recommend her for the labor of every woman I know.  In addition to her doula services, Vanessa also took amazing and tasteful photographs of the labor and delivery. I'll never forget the way my son first looked at me, but because of her gift, I can share that moment with family and friends for years to come" - Savannah
