Testimonials

I have worked with Nova several times and she is AMAZING. Her birth images are awe inspiring. No matter what kind of birth you choose – it’s a day to let Nova help you remember for the rest of your life. You only get one time to birth that baby and if you let that pass – you will regret it. She has an artistic eye that cannot be compared. Nova is most professional and her images truly capture the moment. She knows how to get the perfect shot and embrace who you really are.  It blew me away how this photographer got my personality film. Nova has a knack for it. I have never looked so good and felt so comfortable! I hopefully have a maternity shoot in the near future(should probably tell my man about that part!) and I am already looking forward to it. You won’t be disappointed – call her!

Nova is an amazing photographer!  She has worked in the birth community for many years, so she has lots of experience working with pregnant women, new mamas, babies & families.  My maternity photo session was fun & effortless.  I really felt like a goddess!  Nova was able to capture many emotions which is the magic of pregnancy.  I was grateful for that when looking through the shots.  Nova is a mama herself, so she really knows what a parent wants and her creative ideas makes for the perfect shot!  Thank you Nova!

Nova attended both of our births, our first at the hospital and our second at home. Both times, we needed her to come in the middle of the night and to be on call for several hours of labor (the first was 23 hours and the second was 18).  Both times she arrived promptly and well-prepared. The first time she helped us navigate the hospital system and reminded us of our birth plan and options…she helped us to avoid unnecessary interventions in our time of less than clear thinking. Birthing at home was a very different experience for the second, and she provided relaxing massage, prepared labor snacks and drinks, and set up aromatherapy when the labor nausea hit.  She never let me believe I couldn’t make it through the long, tough labor.  When we needed to rush to the hospital after the baby was born due to placenta complications, she ran out to the nearest cross streets to guide the ambulance in, and rode in the ambulance with baby and I and advocated for our needs while Daddy followed in the car with the carseat and clothes.  She was nurturing, flexible, and went above and beyond both times she worked for us. We love Nova….she has also done some birth photography for us that is simply stunning, and provided us with some postpartum doula time after our second was born. She brought some hot soup and picked up the house a bit 2 weeks post-partum when I ended up with bronchitis and my husband had to work. I highly recommend Nova for any of your pregnancy and birth needs. You will always get what you pay for and more.  We don’t know what we would have done without her… we initially received her services as a baby shower gift that we didn’t think we needed, boy were we wrong!
