About Tabitha & Birthlove Photography

From conception to birth, we all enter into this world in the same way. I am a passionate observer, in love with the whole process. Documenting the fleeting moments of the stages and changes of a woman’s body throughout her pregnancy, to the speed of light at which a child develops in the first year of life, fills my life with passion and purpose. One of my first shoots was of my best friend when she was pregnant with her second child, as she aloud me the freedom to expand my creativity capturing intimate moments with her sweet belly and her family. From that moment I was hooked…..

That moment took place in the Fall of 2010, and I have found that all I want to do is capture all of those moments for parents so that they may hold on to that sliver of time in their life when their child was swimming in the womb, entering the world uttering their first cry, sleeping peacefully as a newborn, or making silly faces as they peer into my lens.

Through my own personal journey of trying for a family, I have found that I get so much joy and fulfillment from a career in the birth world. I am constantly growing and changing, as there is so much to learn in this industry. I love to shoot outdoors in this beautiful place we call home. I often shoot newborn sessions in your home to capture real moments in real families, meaning there will not always be perfectly posed children with perfect smiles.

I reside in Bend, OR with my amazing husband and community of supportive friends. We own a massage therapy practice in downtown Bend. I am also an active doula in the community, coaching expecting parents through the joyful experience of birth, and I teach childbirth education. I love traveling, whenever I can find the time. I love all of my jobs. I love my life.

“I hired Tabitha to take pictures at the birth of both my son and daughter. Being in such an intimate space, Tabitha was extremely professional and respectful. She captured every moment that I could not see as a laboring mother. When viewing the photos, it is like watching their birth stories through a different set of eyes. The photos she took are incredibly special to me. I would highly recommend having Tabitha as a photographer to anyone interested in maternity, newborn, or birth photography.”

“Tabitha’s photos are priceless. Loved them all. From our birth photos, to our 1 yr old milestone photoshoot and our follow-up 2.5 yr shots, each time Tabitha has found a way to bring forth our little’s blossoming personality and beauty. She is a consummate professional and such a pleasure to work with. I look forward to more photos by her in the future.”
-Courtney A.

“Anyone who is looking for a family/ newborn photographer who is kind, efficient and cost appropriate I would highly suggest Tabitha from Birth Love Photography. She took our son’s two week photo’s and we were completely thrilled with how they turned out. For the family session she came over to the comfort of our home and was able to work around feeding/ changing schedule of a newborn as well as my three year old daughter’s attention span. Throughout the process she remained professional and had innovative ideas on how to best use the natural light that best complimented our family. Before I found Birth Love Photography, I called around to several photographers all of which were more expensive and offered less, so I couldn’t be happier with my choice. I will definitely be using Tabitha again!”

Tabitha always has a way of making our family feel comfortable and beautiful. She is very loving and caring with our two young children. She is very accommodating and when we wanted to get something specific she always works with us. I am always so pleased and thankful to have such wonderful keepsakes.
