From the moment you book with me, I’ll be there to guide you and make sure you feel completely comfortable and secure throughout the process.
My goal is to tell you and your family’s empowering story — and that can only come about through respect and attentiveness to your needs and wants.
Being Doula-certified, you can rest assured that you’ll have more than just a documentarian with you during your birth session — you’ll have a loyal companion by your side who can cheer you on and support you through positive affirmations.
When you receive your photos and videos, I want to remind you of your inner strength and extraordinary capabilities, especially during those difficult physical emotional challenges that come with labor and delivery.
Every stage of a family’s life together is significant and deserves the most touching and beautiful art that can be showcased in different ways — such as wall photos, edited films, albums, digital prints, and much more.
Devoted Doula Work
As a certified birth Doula, it is my duty and utmost passion to help you have the birthing experience you want to have. You’ll have an educator, advocate, organizer, and affirmation-spouter by your side in times of joy and uncertainty.
As a postpartum Doula, I will be there for your family as you transition to this new chapter of life with your baby through educating, nurturing, breastfeeding support, baby care, and also postpartum care for the strong mama.
Meet Heather Stanford
Certified Doula, Professional Photographer & Videographer, Amateur Coffee & Wine Aficionado
Hi! I’m Heather Stanford, founder of Heather Stanford Photography & Films and the lucky mama to a 11-year-old “baby” boy. Let’s get to know each other!

(how are we alike?)
It turns out that the messy, beautiful, tender family moments are better than any dreamed-up fairytale.
I may be about all these things (did I mention coffee already?), but my ultimate passion — the one that makes my heart sing is birth and family photography.
When I was a little girl, I always fantasized about typical fairytale things — like being a princess or getting a unicorn for my birthday. But now that I’m a mom, I realize I prefer things a bit more real.
That’s why I love what I do — capturing authentic family life, such as the moment a woman becomes a mother, or the memorable family milestones.
