YOUR EAST TENNESSEE BIRTH PHOTOGRAPHER,
A LITTLE ABOUT ME
I'm a wife, mom to three, Christian, Type A perfectionist, experienced doula & photographer. I'm love a great conversation, but I also am quite skilled at listening and soaking in the quiet. I enjoy reading (mainly birth related) books, watching Gilmore Girls (hello, guilty pleasure!) and drinking girly Starbucks drinks.
MY LOVE FOR PHOTOGRAPHY
In 2006, my husband and I created Daniel Howell Photography, specializing in photojournalistic weddings (now called Howell Photography). Together we have photographed weddings, and countless engagement and family sessions.
birth of babies & business
East Tennessee Doula & Birth Photography was a concept of mine that swirled around my head after having our first child in 2011. After years of experience as a labor doula in countless environments, in 2017, I realized that in order to better serve my clients and to be present in my own family's lives, I needed to take a break from doula support, and simply focus on birth photography -- which I adore!
My Birth Personality
As your birth photographer, I am quiet, peaceful, and calm. I want nothing more than for you to have the birth experience you have always dreamed of and to capture the moments you never want to forget.
"FREE SPIRIT BIRTH" PREFERRED DOULA OF EAST TENNESSEE BIRTH PHOTOGRAPHER
Barb has been coined the "Birth Sherpa" by a friend, and it's no wonder, due to her vast experience attending births as a nurse and/or doula. She also teaches invaluable childbirth preparation classes that were conceived as Birthing From Within and have grown into her own special concoction of the most helpful tidbits she's learned and observed along the way.
Barb is a wife and mother. She and her husband have also taken over the family farm, raising sheep, cattle, and chickens and growing produce. Barb is easy-going, fun to be around, and a great person to have in your birth-corner.
