Photography

As Phoenix birth photographers, we have been bringing birth images to our doula families since the very beginning... now we would love to bring them to you as well! So, even if you would rather not have our doula support at your birth, we can bring our photography skills to your once-in-a-lifetime day. 

As your birth photographer, we are on-call for you beginning at 38 weeks (or earlier if you are in need of an early induction or c-section) until your babe is born. That means our phones are next to us 24/7 and we are ready to meet you at your home, birth center, or hospital. We bring along our trusty camera and capture all of those beautiful memories for you... forever... we stay with your new family for approximately two hours after delivery to capture all of the little details—wrinkly toes, brand new pink skin, fluffy newborn hair, first yawns—your first moments as a brand new family! After our time is done, editing takes approximately four weeks (with some sneak peeks straightaway). We will have approximately 50-75 images delivered to you via a password protected gallery which you can download and print.  

We have attended hundreds of births as doulas and feel very comfortable and at ease in the birth space. We always try to remain as unobtrusive as possible, but possess a doula heart and hand if needed.

Pausing these monumental milestones, using natural light and a unique touch. 

Capturing precious moments to last a lifetime.

Optional add-ons

Milk bath photoshoots are a perfect way to capture your pregnancy, breastfeeding, or newborn in an intimate way. You will have the opportunity to choose a color scheme, and flowers and milk will be provided by the photographer. The shoot will last 60-90 minutes and you will receive 15-20 edited photos.

MATERNITY PHOTOS

These unique photos are a wonderful way to celebrate your pregnancy, newborn baby, or just because!

Thank You

“I was fortunate enough to have Alyssa as my doula and photographer and had my placenta encapsulated. Best money I’ve ever spent… especially the photos because they are just so beautiful and we look back at them all the time. There were so many little things she did during and after that I didn’t notice until I reflected back, and I just really appreciated all that she did for us. Love love love her!”

-Maddison Barney

“We had the pleasure of having Megan as our birth doula and photographer for our home birth. Megan was there for us every step of the way through pregnancy and throughout our entire labor and delivery. You can feel her connection to her clients through her photos. They are intimate, beautiful and raw, a perfect representation of birth. I still tear up looking at the photos Megan captured. Having these images is a gift I will treasure forever.”

- Kaitlyn R

"You (Hannah) were very supportive to both David and I and really appreciated your presence during the birth of Christian. The pictures alone were so beautiful it brought tears to my eyes. Thank you for going out of your way to help us and our new baby as he entered this world. Your care had such an impact on us during a pinnacle moment in our life that we would love to extend our gratitude beyond a thank you!"

A Fresh-48 session will occur within 48 hours after delivery, to capture the joy-filled afterglow of bringing a new precious life earth-side. These are largely unposed, as the photographer aims to capture the raw emotions and true essence of these moments. 

FRESH 48

what is included


These are some of our favorite newborn photo sessions to shoot. There is something magical about meeting a brand new baby, and it’s an honor to be invited to document such an important family event.


The parents may be tired from a long labor, but they are still basking in the warm love of welcoming their new baby into their family.


It’s a truly special experience to document to cherish.

Kind Words

"...I don't think I could have made it through my home birth without her- I'm not exaggerating!"

“Where do we start?! Alyssa is pretty much an angel on Earth. My wife and I were are so blessed to have come across Cherry Blossom when searching for doula services. She was a wonderful support throughout my entire pregnancy. When I say I don’t think I could have made it through my home birth without her- I'm not exaggerating! She was an amazing physical support knowing exactly what to recommend to cope with surges. But beyond that she was an amazing emotional support. We hired her as our birth photographer as well and OMG, the photos were amazing. Anyone wondering if it’s possible for one person to play both roles (doula and birth photographer), it’s absolutely possible, especially when Alyssa is doing it! At no point did one interfere with the other. She did it all so seamlessly. It was bittersweet to have our babe born because it meant that our time with Alyssa came to an end! excited to work with her again next time!"

"She served as a huge emotional crutch during and after the pregnancy.  She is so responsive, I wonder when she even sleeps!"

“By my third pregnancy, I FINALLY decided it was time for a doula. I had my 2nd without meds and wanted the same for this one. And, let’s be real, partners are awesome and supportive BUT don’t always know exactly what to say or do.  Choosing Alyssa was the best decision I’ve made. She encompasses total nurturing momma vibes. She is soft and gentle, her voice sing-songy, you just feel like you’re being “held” in her presence.”
We had a prenatal diagnosis of both Down Syndrome and a congenital heart defect and Alyssa’s empathy, gentleness, care and consistent checking in sets her apart. She served as a huge emotional crutch during and after the pregnancy. She is so responsive, I wonder when she even sleeps! If she doesn’t have an answer, rest assure she’ll find one! Oh and hire her for your birth photography because you will spend every day regretting it if you don’t. She has the eye and heart at capturing those moments."

"...she was a calm and supportive presence."

“Alyssa was an amazing doula and I recommend her without reservation. She was easy to establish communication with and responded to text and e-mail in a timely fashion. She helped me and my family feel at ease leading up to the birth. During the labor and birth she was a calm and supportive presence. And she took some fabulous photos. I have worked with and know several doulas as an Ob/Gyn. It was also important to me that she get along with hospital staff, but also advocate for me, which she pulled off very smoothly."

M. Mahnert

"...couldn't have asked for better labor support..."

"Kristy was incredible, organized and on top of things, yet very comfortable and laid back. She was all about what WE wanted. She was supportive and encouraging through a very long labor and went above and beyond what we ever would have imagined. I couldn’t have asked for a better labor support as I aimed for a non-medicated induced delivery. She helped me to get exactly what I wanted, even when in the midst of it, I forgot that I actually wanted it. Together we achieved my goal of no epidural, and I couldn’t have done it without my amazing doula and husband team! In preparation for our delivery we met several times and communicated through text and calls. Even the nurses commented the next day on how much they liked her as a doula! Thank you, Kristy, !!"

C. Smith

"..doing everything with a lot of love and care."

"My family was honored to have Kristy Martin as our doula. From the moment we first met her we noticed that she was very professional, very well prepared, had a lot of experience and more importantly a great personality! She guided us in helping create our birth plan and during on call hours she was always available to guide you in any question that you might have. Kristy stayed with us the entire time supporting me and my wife doing everything with a lot of love and care. She took pictures during labor to capture the precious moments for us to cherish. Kristy went above and beyond our expectations she made the experience a lot better for us. We were very lucky. Thank you!"

"..I couldn't have done it without her..."

"Bringing my baby girl into this world would have been drastically different without Melissa, I am SO thankful that we decided on her as our doula! I tell her that I couldn't have done it without her, and she's right, I could have, but I am SO glad I didn't have to! Both me and my husband are eternally grateful to have had her share this experience with us! From the very beginning she provided us with evidence based articles to help with any questions I had. She also blew me away by capturing the purest moments of our birth story that I will cherish for the rest of my life! I highly recommend Melissa and I look forward to having her at my future births!"
