Hi, I’m Kallyn!

I’m a photographer, birth & postpartum doula, wife, sister, daughter, friend and lover of life! I live and play in Durham, North Carolina, and am available to travel for births and family sessions anywhere in-state.

As a photographer of life, my approach is journalistic. I come alongside your journey to capture those everyday moments that are your family's heart and soul.

Real, Beautiful Moments

In my work as a former photojournalist, I was often in the midst of unpredictable situations where my job was to make the strongest pictures I knew how. To every photo session – whether it's a birth, newborn or session with the entire family – I bring my ability to flow with the situation and roll with the unexpected all while capturing the precious moments of the day.

Witnessing Birth

Over the years I’ve had the privilege of attending many births as a doula, and as your photographer I’m able to anticipate your needs and capture your process unobtrusively.

Being present for a baby’s earth-side arrival is like no other time in the world. Time collapses and I am there to witness the hard work of labor, the intensity of birth as well as the gentleness as you hold your baby for the first time.

I’m also a proud member of The Birth Collective, an innovative group of documentary photographers in North Carolina. We believe that real is beautiful. Your story, your body, your baby are beautiful. Our moments-focused approach naturally captures the emotion and unique story of your birth experience.

Our members have 30+ years of documentary photography experience and 12+ years photographing many types of births: water, home, birth center, hospital and surgical births. Whatever your birth process is, we will be there to capture your journey in all of its raw intensity.
