At The Doula Guild, our desire to educate, equip, and encourage women on their journey of motherhood has developed a desire to form relationships in our community with other like-minded professionals. We continue to connect with creative professionals, such as Lisa Phillips, owner, and photographer at Lisa Phillips Photo who offers birth photography in Leesburg, VA and beyond. Lisa is our newest Guild Affiliate and the passion and heart behind her work make us excited to be affiliated with her talent.
Lisa is a mom to two, sweet little ones and a wife to an amazing husband. She’s a lover of a good cup of coffee, traveling to new places and all things motherhood and birth. Here’s Lisa on the heart behind her work:
“I love to document our everyday life – the good, the bad and the in-between moments. Since having children I have found it so important to capture these fleeting moments that I know I want to look back on when I’m old and wrinkly. Which is also why I have become a huge advocate for birth photography.
The images from my homebirth are some of the most cherished memories that I will always be able to look back on. The disbelief in my eyes that “I did it” right after he came out; the picture of his first latch; our “golden hour”… All of these memories are what I want other mothers to have as well. So they are able to look back on them and remember exactly what they felt, what emotions went through their head when that baby was placed on their chest, how supported they were throughout the whole process.
I want to capture the life-altering moments in which we become mothers to our first, second, third,… child. I want to show them that all birth is beautiful and natural and worth documenting because each story is unique and so are our babies. I am a passionate advocate of this beautiful thing called motherhood and want to honor, respect, and capture it in all its forms – from Maternity to Birth, Postpartum, Breastfeeding/Bottle feeding and beyond.
I want to document this transformative era in your life – whether it is the blissful and euphoric moments or moments of struggle or hardship. I believe the journey of motherhood needs to be captured in all of its beauty throughout each stage of life and I would love to be there to document these raw moments.”
