We can't wait to work with you.
Hi, my name is Sonja... Sonja with a "J". I am 30 something mom to Jake and Finn, and wife to Scot. I moved here from Germany in 1998. I came here as an Aupair... fell in love with Cincinnati, the family I worked for and then later with my husband. I love to read, travel and kayak. I love everything vintage, love to ride bikes with my boys, and love to go to the movies with my husband. I think of myself as an easy going, flexible and fun loving person. I always loved photography... I got my first little film camera from my Nana at about the age of 8. I did "portrait" type of sessions with friends at about 12. I later studied Audio/ Video Productions (Communications) and then Marketing. I really became serious about photography when my oldest was born and I wanted to capture every moment. Soon friends and family asked me to photograph their children... and so it began. Birth Photography is a true passion of mine. Capturing the small and big moments to retell your birth story is what I love doing. The very unposed nature of Birth Photography is really what draws me to it and I love every minute of it.
I'm Stacey. I'm a thirty year old photographer who loves crafting, family, and music. I'm happiest when I'm surrounded by those I love, fresh flowers and the smell of good food. I'm a great home cook and I love to travel and try new cuisine. My favorite place I've ever been is England because I love history and old architecture! I have a master's degree in Speech Language Pathology and I'm also a pre-certified doula through ProDoula. Being a doula helps me better relate to my clients and gives me a better understanding of not only the birth process but how to be a better support to you and your partner throughout your labor. I've been a photographer for a little over 5 years and have owned my own business for two years. I've been lucky enough to do many different kinds of photography but nothing touches my heart the way birth photography does. I feel thankful to be invited to share this incredible experience with families and to be able to capture memories they will always remember.
I book doula clients exclusively through Doulas of Cincinnati. Need a doula? Call them. They are amazing women who provide nonjudgmental support.
