Hello there! I am Mandy the owner and operator of Denton Birth Photography. I am so glad that you are thinking about having your birth journey documented. I first picked up a camera when I was sixteen, found such joy in the art of photography, and in 2015 I started a family photography business. I focused on families, newborns, graduates and headshots. However, in 2016 I was asked if I could do birth photography, (so amazing!) and that was one of the most pivotal moments of my life! I knew in that experience that this was God's calling for my life. I found my professional purpose, and that is a beautiful thing! I captured as many births as I could until my family was growing so fast that I could not be on-call. Fast forward to the spring of 2021, my friends Casey and Teagan approached me about taking over their business since they were no longer able to be on-call on a regular basis. I was at the season of life where I could finally be on-call anytime needed. This is how I came to be the owner of Denton Birth Photography. I am a mom of 4 and married to the man of my prayers. I have the most amazing support system in my husband, my mother and my in-laws. They make it possible for me to drop whatever I am doing to head to a birth when I get the call! There is no greater honor than to be invited into the birth space and get to document the strength and power of a mother's body. Every birth is unique. My job is to collaborate with the birth family to understand what moments are the most important and preserve them beautifully. I have added videography to my services offered, and this mode of creative documentation has really been exciting for me. (Contact me for links to view the birth films I have completed) The labor and birth journey are filled with moments that ought to be preserved, for the baby, mother, father and for generations to come.
The Denton Birth Photography Story
A little bit about Denton Birth Photography; DBP was founded as a collective in 2015 by photographers Teagan and Casey. They quickly built up a reputation in the Denton area for capturing births in such a beautiful and powerful way. The birth photography community is small, but it is one that exemplifies teamwork and collaboration. As all three of us individually grew in our birth photography careers, we became friends and served as each other's back-ups. I captured as many births as I could until my family was growing so fast that I could not be on-call. Fast forward to the spring of 2021, my friends Casey and Teagan approached me about taking over their business since they were no longer able to be on-call on a regular basis. I was at the season of life where I could finally be on-call anytime needed, truly the Lord lined everything up for the torch to be passed to me! I was honored that they thought of me, and I aspire to continue the exceptional reputation that they built.
